08.23.2018: One Lesson of Coding


Today's soundtrack is Tech N9ne: The Storm.

This evening, I'm learning how to use HTML to "Define the Head and Body of an HTML Document" (link).

We use the head of an HTML page to provide a web page's metadata; the body is where we put the information that users will see. Metadata, which according to techopedia.com's definition is simply "data about data" (citation), includes "link, meta, title, and style" (citation).

I quickly learned that the "head" and "body" tags are NOT self-closing; they must be manually closed: they wrap around the information inside of their respective places.

In my next coding lesson, I'll be learning about CSS!
