Join Paul Trani for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the Internet and websites, part of Dreamweaver CC 2015: Creating a First Website.
- I'd like to start off by giving you a high level overview…of how the Internet and websites work.…Starting with the Internet,…otherwise known as the World Wide Web,…and all it really is just a global system of computers…that are all linked together by a network.…This network then carries data,…usually in the form of web pages,…so you can have data on one computer…shared, really, with the rest of the world,…so it gets to be really powerful.…And really, the most basic form of something you wanna share…is probably gonna be a web page.…
So, a web page is really just a document…with formatting instructions,…called Hypertext Markup Language.…This HTML is then rendered by web browsers,…giving the content formatting,…and to be honest with you,…it's actually pretty easy to read.…If we just take a look at this sample HTML,…you kind of pick apart what it says,…sure there's some interesting characters in there,…but overall, I could somewhat read this,…but the great thing is, is that I don't have to.…Because web browsers read that content,…
Over the course of the training, you'll learn about building basic webpages; adding text, links, images, and navigation; and making your layout "flexible" on mobile devices. Each step provides another lesson on HTML and CSS, the building blocks of the web. Along the way, Paul shows how to add bonus features, such as animation from Edge Animate, a Twitter feed, and an interactive contact form.
