3.1 Wrapping Up

Congratulations! You’ve just learned the basics of HTML and created your first web page. Let’s quickly recap what you’ve learned, and take a sneak peek at what’s coming in the next “Start Here” course here on Envato Tuts+.

3.1 Wrapping Up

Congratulations you've now completed Start Here, Learn HTML Basics. You've gone from starting with a blank slate and now you've hand coded your own HTML page with all of the most common HTML elements in it. So you learned what HTML was, you learned that it was a type of markup, and that markup is a way to add instructions to content. And in the case of HTML, those instructions tell a web browser how to display a web page. You learned that HTML is made up of elements, that elements are created by using tags and that tags can have extra attributes to give them extra functionality. You learned what the most common HTML elements are, so that you don't have to get overwhelmed by learning too much code all at once. And those elements that you just worked with can be used to create an infinite number of different types of websites. This course has been the first in a series that's gonna take you all the way through to knowing all of the most important things about web design. So you've got the HTML essentials down. Now in the next course, we're gonna move on to working with CSS. Because when you pair CSS with styling with the HTML that you just learnt in this course, that's when you really unlock the potential of web design. So in the next course we're gonna introduce you to working with CSS. You're gonna learn exactly what CSS is, how it works, how to fix website display, you're gonna learn things like what CSS selectors are, CSS properties, and you going to learn about the syntax that you need to use when creating CSS. And this first course teaching you CSS is gonna concentrate on typography. Now the reason that we're going into typography first is the bulk of a website tends to be created of text. So one of the most important things that you need to get right in a website is making sure that text is easy to read, comfortable to read, enjoyable to read. And once you have your text right, then you can design all the rest of your website to harmonize with that optimized and readable typography. So in the next course you'll learn about CSS font properties, you'll learn about using website fonts and custom fonts, font stacks, you'll learn about how to control spacing with things like line height and margins. You'll learn about the types of units that you can use in typography. You'll learn more about controlling the display of heading tags and paragraph tags. And then we're gonna take the web page that you just created at the end of this course, and we're gonna style its typography based on everything that you learn in the next course. So look out for a Start Here, Learn Typography CSS. So I hope you really enjoyed everything that you learned in this course, that you're feeling really proud of yourself for what you've done, and I hope that you're looking forward to learning more. So thanks for taking this course and I'll see you in the next one.
