A Beginner’s Guide to Learning HTML (and Smacking Zombies Upside the Web Development) – John Rhea

If you’re putting anything up on the web, learning HTML will help you make cleaner, clearer content, whether you’re embarking on a new career in web development or just adding another weapon to your zombie fighting arsenal.

But so many books about HTML are boring and technical. You barely get to kill any zombies in them! Not so here. You’ll be taking zombies out left and right as you learn about HTML, how it works, and put it into action. You’ll have lots of practice adding both fun and analogies that help the concepts stick like zombies to an apocalypse.

Besides learning how to punch a zombie in the HTML5, you’ll learn the major HTML elements that make up a modern web page and how to put them to good use. You’ll learn the structural underpinnings of a web page, how to markup text, how to wrangle attributes, and ways to embed images, audio, and video.

You won’t just passively take in the content, though. You’ll use guided tutorials to better understand each tag and concept, and get a handle on how they work.

There’s no reason good learning can’t live right along side good fun. So grab your computer, grab your sense of humor and hit that buy button. We’ve got sites to build.
