Overview of Web Development
A general overview of web development is given in this tutorial. You will gain a foundational understanding of JavaScript, CSS, and HTML (Hypertext Markup Language). These are the three main web development technologies. Additionally, you will investigate the design and elements of a website to have a fundamental idea of how web pages are put together.

Your development environment will be set up. Installing a code editor, such as Visual Studio Code or Sublime Text, which facilitates the effective writing and management of your web development code, is necessary to accomplish this. You will also discover how to set up a local development server with the aid of programs like XAMPP or WampServer. Before deploying your web pages to a live website, you can run and test them locally on these servers.

HTML Basics
The building blocks of a web page are HTML. You will study the fundamentals of HTML tags, elements, and attributes in this tutorial. You'll comprehend how to use HTML to build the fundamental elements of a web page, such as headings, paragraphs, links, photos, and more. A webpage's structure and content are provided via HTML.
Let's dive into some sample code to show the fundamentals of HTML:

HTML:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>My First Web Page</title>
</head>
<body>
  <h1>Welcome to My Website</h1>
  <p>This is a paragraph of text.</p>
  <img src="image.jpg" alt="Description of the image">

  <h2>About Me</h2>
  <p>I am a web developer passionate about creating amazing websites.</p>

  <h3>My Hobbies</h3>
  <ul>
    <li>Playing guitar</li>
    <li>Reading books</li>
    <li>Traveling</li>
  </ul>

  <h3>Contact Me</h3>
  <p>You can reach me at <a href="mailto:example@example.com">example@example.com</a>.</p>
</body>
</html>
The!DOCTYPE html> statement in the sample above informs the browser that this is an HTML5 document. The html> tags contain the content of our website.
The title of the page, which appears in the browser's title bar, is one piece of meta-data about the document that is contained in the head> section.
Within the body> tags is where the web page's actual content is located. To organize and present the text, we can utilize several HTML tags.
The main header (h1>), paragraphs (p>), and an image (img>) are all used in the sample. The path to the image file is specified by the src attribute within the img> tag, while alternate text is provided by the alt attribute.

Additionally, we utilized unordered lists (ul) to list our interests and headings (h2 and h3) to structure our information in a hierarchy. A list item (li) for each hobby is used to represent it.
The a> element has also been used to make a link. We use mailto: to build a mailto link, enabling users to send an email when they click the link. The href attribute within the a> tag provides the URL the link links to.


➡ CSS Fundamentals
Web pages can be styled and visually improved with CSS. You will learn how to style web pages with CSS in this tutorial. You'll comprehend how to use selectors to choose HTML elements, how to apply different properties to govern how they look, and how to define values for those properties. You can modify the colors, fonts, layouts, and other visual elements of your website with CSS.
Let's proceed with some sample CSS code to show the basics:

HTML:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>My Stylish Web Page</title>
  <style>
    /* CSS code goes here */
    h1 {
      color: blue;
      font-size: 24px;
    }

    p {
      color: green;
      font-size: 16px;
    }

    img {
      width: 300px;
      border: 1px solid black;
    }

    ul {
      list-style-type: none;
    }

    a {
      text-decoration: none;
    }
  </style>
</head>
<body>
  <h1>Welcome to My Stylish Website</h1>
  <p>This is a paragraph of text.</p>
  <img src="image.jpg" alt="Description of the image">

  <h2>About Me</h2>
  <p>I am a web developer passionate about creating amazing websites.</p>

  <h3>My Hobbies</h3>
  <ul>
    <li>Playing guitar</li>
    <li>Reading books</li>
    <li>Traveling</li>
  </ul>

  <h3>Contact Me</h3>
  <p>You can reach me at <a href="mailto:example@example.com">example@example.com</a>.</p>
</body>
</html>
In this example, the style> elements in the HTML document's head> section contain CSS code that has been inserted.
Using selectors, we targeted various HTML components, and then we applied CSS properties to change the way they looked. For instance, we used the color and font-size values to give all of the h1> heads a blue color and a larger font size.
Similar to this, we have modified the color and size of the font used in all p> paragraphs, given the img> image a specified width, applied a border, removed the bullet points from the ul> unordered list, and de-underlined the a> link.


➡ Responsive Web Design
Websites that use responsive web design adjust to different screen sizes and devices and appear correctly on them. You will discover how to build responsive websites in this course. This entails modifying the design and layout of web pages dependent on the screen size using CSS media queries and viewport meta tags. For the best user experience across PCs, tablets, and mobile phones, responsive web design is crucial.
