Commonly asked questions about learning HTML / CSS.

What is HTML & CSS for kids?

HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is a programming language that defines the structure and elements of a website. 

CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a programming language that formats HTML elements and adds styles to a website.

HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are the building blocks of every webpage. In fact, the first website ever launched in 1991 was written in HTML. For many developers, HTML and CSS were the first languages they learned because of their popularity and simplicity.

 

How do I teach HTML and CSS?

There are an abundance of resources for teaching HTML/CSS to children. Start with your child’s age and interests. You can choose from coding books, tutorials, videos, or coding classes. There are free and paid options at all levels, but using a free coding resource is a good way to dip your toe in and see if your child is interested.

Is HTML and CSS easy to learn?

HTML and CSS are two of the easiest languages to learn for kids and beginners. The syntax is simple and you can easily view the output in your browser. Unlike backend languages like Python and Java, you do not need to download any packages or run your code through a server, so it’s very easy to get started.

What should I learn first, HTML or CSS?

We advise learning HTML first. It will help kids build a foundation for how a site is structured and interpreted by a browser. A CSS file is added to an HTML page in order to format and style features of the HTML like color and size. Without an HTML page, the CSS code will have no effect.
