HTML is the backbone of the web. Every time you look at an article, a webpage, or any type of content on a digital screen, HTML is in there. HTML is a programming language, but as far as code goes, it’s about as easy as it gets.

In this tutorial, we’ll cover the steps for creating our road map: the one-page site plan.
