Web Development 101

2021-01-17 Web Development

Children know what a web page is, but if you have a child who wants to learn web development, it’s important to know the main parts that make up a website. Websites are build using a combination of HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language and creates the structure of the website. It’s a blueprint for how the site will be designed. Examples of HTML elements use tags like <h1>, <div>, and <p>.

CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets and styles how HTML elements will appear on the screen. Some examples of styling include color, fonts, background images and simple animation.

JavaScript is the programming language that makes a website dynamic. Every interaction you have on a website, from a button click to a pop-up alert, is controlled by JavaScript.
