What is HTML?

HTML is an acronym that stands for Hyper Text Markup Language

Role of HTML in web development

HTML is a language used to structure a webpage, an HTML file will always have a file extension of .html.

It forms the backbone of web pages by defining the structure and content. While HTML alone primarily focuses on the structure of the content, it works in conjunction with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for styling and JavaScript for interactivity, creating a dynamic and visually appealing user experience.

Let's say you want to write a web page that displays your name and your bio, what you will do is create and write in it a bunch of text as follows.

Bio:I am a web developer with more that 10 years experience working with
languages like  php, laravel, tailwindcss, react js, vue js and more.

as written above if you save this file .html and you open it with your browser, it will open and display for you the following information but a typical webpage will often have a structure that I am going to write about in my next post.

one thing I want to achieve in this post is to let you know what HTML is.
