HTML is all around us

Web Designer - - Meta Welcome -

HTML has been a build­ing block of the web ever since the day it be­gan. Without HTML where would we be? HTML is a much dif­fer­ent an­i­mal to the one that was knock­ing around in the Nineties. It has grown with the web and now of­fers so much more. But us­ing it the right way is what’s im­por­tant.

In our lat­est lead fea­ture, Matt Crouch looks at the es­sen­tial el­e­ments and APIS that HTML has to of­fer, why you should be us­ing them and how they should be used in ev­ery­day de­sign.

Keep­ing HTML com­pany are its two favourite friends, CSS and Javascript. Dis­cover a col­lec­tion that will com­ple­ment HTML and your builds. Else­where we go be­yond the tra­di­tional con­fines of the web and look at how the Web of Things is con­nect­ing hardware and the browser. Thanks to the in­ter­net you can take con­trol of hardware without even hav­ing to touch it. Learn how to build a sim­ple ex­am­ple.

In the fi­nal part of our Three.js se­ries, Richard Mat­tka shows you how to load com­plex 3D mod­els in WEBGL. If you have the com­plete se­ries you will have no prob­lem cre­at­ing some im­pres­sive 3D.

Se­man­tic markup is vi­tal for ac­ces­si­bil­ity, search en­gines and much more — but it is so of­ten mis­used. Build a strong foun­da­tion
