Intro to Web Design

Making a web page is one of the easiest computing disciplines to achieve results in quickly. Try copying the following code into any text editor you may have on your computer:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <title>My First web page</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    How awesome am I!
  </body>
</html>

Once you’ve copied that in, save it somewhere on your computer as “index.html“. Then┬ásimply double-click on that file from the folder where you saved it and…BAM!!! You’ve made your first web page.

But what’s with all those angle brackets and peculiar words and symbols? How can I make something truly awesome like your site? Well before diving into creating a web site there’s a fair amount of fundamental concepts you should understand first. That’s what this tutorial is designed to introduce you to.
