Our first technology that we will be learning is HTML and how it used to create web pages. By the end of this lesson you will be able to:

  • Explain how HTML is the ‘backbone’ of a web page
  • Identify how HTML is built
  • Experiment with HTML to create different types of content
    • Content
    • Forms
    • Embedded items
  • Break down the HTML of a web page to view its component parts
  • Decide which tools to use to view and validate HTML

Why watch?

  • An understanding of how HTML works will help you generate new risks, test ideas and deep dive into HTML based issues for bug reporting and developer discussions.
  • You’ll be shown how to create your own HTML pages for your own future projects.
  • You will be introduced to HTML elements, a key piece of information in reference to automated tools such as Selenium WebDriver.

What you need to use during this lesson:

  • Atom: a text editing tool.
  • JS Bin: A live pastebin for HTML, CSS & JavaScript and a range of processors.
  • WC3 Validator: This validator checks the markup validity of web documents.
