Practical Guide for

Learning HTML, CSS & JavaScript is essential for any web developer. This guide will take you through fairly quickly on how to get started with HTML/CSS/JavaScript.

HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is a standard developed over the years to convey information over the internet by using “hyperlinks” – or just links as we know them today. CSS is a language that describes the style of an HTML document. CSS describes how HTML elements should be displayed. While JavaScript could be called as the programming language of HTML and the Web.

Here are some of the concepts you should keep in mind:
First of all, they can all be encapsulated within an HTML page, meaning that the browser starts by loading an HTML page, and only then it knows what to load from there.

  • An HTML page is an HTML document that defines the content of the page by using a special markup similar to XML.
  • A CSS stylesheet defines the style of the HTML elements in the page. It is either embeeded within an HTML page or loaded using the tag.
  • JavaScript is the programming language used to interact with the HTML page through an API called the DOM (Document Object Model) Bindings. In other words, the DOM Bindings are the glue between the programming language and the HTML page that was initially loaded into the browser.
