One of the "basic" Web programming languages - html - is one of the main components in the engine and sites in their structure.
Any aspiring web programmer must read and know html.
But how to do it, and get the most out without spending a lot of time?
Theory HTML: types and purpose
HTML (from the English. HyperText Markup Language - hypertext markup language) - a standard markup language documents on the Internet. It is, in fact, the main and the only language for building Web pages that can contain scripts and other elements of languages: Java, php, CSS, and others.
Although the theoretical part of the study of the languagecan be known for some 2-3 months, practical skills are usually developed for life, because it is one of the most dynamic programming language that is constantly evolving, complemented and modernized, thus forcing a web programmer to improve their skills.
Any user can in real timelearn the language written on the web page: you need to click RMB the empty space, and select "View Page Source" - the page will be in the language tag
To understand what is HTML 5, you need to understand what is XHTML compliant ...
XHTML - HTML-like markup languageWeb pages often used to build complex web applications, but it has a much more complex syntax and sensitivity to errors. When people talk about the importance of the document structure, we always mention XHTML, and of HTML.
Learning XHTML does not take much more time than learning the HTML, but its effectiveness against the background of the emergence of a new language - HTML 5 - falls significantly.
When the smart guys who all his life studiedweb programming languages, understand that the constant throwing between simple eye HTML and complicated, but correct XHTML just annoying - they decided to create something universal, something that will contain the syntactic markup of both languages at the same time will not lose quality. Thus was created the HTML 5, which officially is under development, but, in fact, is the working standard (Eng. HTML Living Standard).
How to learn programming html? Tips for beginners
Before setting out to explore something and wastehis time, it is necessary to determine the goals. If the goal - to impose a couple of pages, or to make online business card, it is unlikely that even a need to buy textbooks: enough of one to two months of hard work with the use of Internet resources for the study of HTML and CSS (cascading style sheets - a language for describing the appearance of the document), and the site will be ready.
If a person wants to doWeb programming and learn the subtleties of manual typesetting, the time he spends about 10-15 times more. To understand the syntax of SGML-type languages, it is necessary to examine the first XML (tongue structuring web documents with complex syntax), and then to study the HTML 5 and passing (since these two inseparable language) to study the CSS, and at the end of "fill" all it is a good Java.
Many people mistakenly assume that successfuldeveloping web resources you need to know 1-2 languages. This is not true. Knowledge of such a small number of languages makes web programmer "clumsy" - unable to think creatively.
To succeed in web programming requires willpower. Well, following the advice can not hurt.
- To begin the study of programming languages isa theory of language - the future first "coder" you need to understand the concepts of these languages in their functions, learn the difference between HTML and XML, etc.
- In the course of the study should be usedMedia Resources: today there are many educational sites on which the information is presented in a digestible form, and, hence, learning the language will bring not only benefits but also fun.
- Practice. After studying the "theoretical framework", it is necessary to immediately begin to practice - a notebook or type Notepad ++ editor should be opened on the computer 24 hours a day.
programming language - as well as English and French - will not develop if it does not practice.
