It seems the number of people interested in learning programming is increasing daily.
as lots of people have been trying to learn programming.

I'm willing to teach to the best of my ability, though am also a learner. this thread is open to helpful comments from those better.

Things to expect from me
1. Basic tutorial from me starting with html.
2. links to helpful videos and sites
3. information on some programming schools am aware of
4. information on helpful books and dvd's
5. And some helpful tips in programming.

pls note: Am not much of a writer, I'm just trying to give back to the society. so i would appreciate help from better writers for correction should the need be.

i would be starting with what i started with, and what my teacher's also started with.(from what they told me)

HTML
Is it a programing language or not.
really, i don't care. All i know is it is the easiest to start with.


so lets begin.

For every skill you need a tool.

For HTML you need your notepad, notepad++, dreamweavers and such.(if you know more feel free to share)
to get to your notepad simply search for notepad on your system and open it.

now that we've done that.type into your notepad the following,

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Page Title</title>
</head>
<body>

<h1>This is a Heading</h1>
<p>This is a paragraph.</p>

</body>
</html>

good.
next i will explain what the code says.

Re: Nairaland School Of Programming by Nobody: 3:29am On Oct 16, 2015
HTML is a markup language for describing web documents (web pages).
<html> this is called a tag. it is a start tag and it tells the browser what kind of document it is.
for every start tag there is an end tag.
</html> this is an end tag.


HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language,

HTML documents are described by HTML tags which i just showed you.(Those text in brackets)
looking at the example i gave in my previos post. below is my explanation of the tags.

The DOCTYPE declaration defines the document type to be HTML
The text between <html> and </html> describes an HTML document
The text between <head> and </head> provides information about the document
The text between <title> and </title> provides a title for the document
The text between <body> and </body> describes the visible page content
The text between <h1> and </h1> describes a heading
The text between <p> and </p> describes a paragraph

<tagname>content</tagname>
i hope now you understand what tags mean.
they are very important.

Note: To start programming you have to start programming, i'm saying don't just read, open up your notepad and write out the code.

Now lets save what you typed.

Save the file on your computer.

Select File > Save as in the Notepad menu.

Name the file "index.html" or any other name ending with html or htm.

You can use either .htm or .html as file extension. There is no difference, it is up to you.

To open the file in a browser, double click on the file, or right-click, and choose open with.

Re: Nairaland School Of Programming by Nobody: 6:32pm On Oct 17, 2015
HTML documents must start with a type declaration: <!DOCTYPE html>.

The HTML document itself begins with <html> and ends with </html>.

The visible part of the HTML document is between <body> and </body>.

HTML headings are defined with the <h1> to <h6>and end with </h1> tags

HTML paragraphs are defined with the <p> and end with </p> tag

HTML links are defined with the <a> and end with </a> tag

I hope we've been practicing our coding on HTML.

was going through nairaland and I came across this post

Special Codes To Format Text On Nairaland by Dioxidane

and an idea hit me.

why not practice on nairaland.

This is for those who are not familiar with text editing codes on Nairaland or on any other forum. Sometimes we see guys that comment with red or blue text or comment with a different font. By the time you finish reading this post, you should be able to do same. Now let's begin.
The general one is to make a text Bold, Italicized, Underlined, or Struck-through.
Put b in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/b] => bold
Put i in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/i] => Italics
Put u in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/u] . => Underline
Put s in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/s] => Strike-Through
The next is changing the color of a text.
Put color=red in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/color]. => Red
Put color=blue in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/color]. => Blue
Put color=green in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/color].=> Green
Another code involves increasing the size of the text.
Put size=12 in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, then end with [/size].=> Twelve
Another code involves changing the font of the text.
Put font=Courier New in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, and end with [/font]. => Dioxidane
Put font=Times New Roman in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, and end with [/font].=> Dioxidane
Put font=Lucida Console in an enclosed bracket [], write your text, and end with [/font]. => Dioxidane e.t.c

try does codes and we can move to our next class on elements.

how do you create a table with two rows and columns
Re: Nairaland School Of Programming by Nobody: 9:08pm On Oct 21, 2015

how do you create a table with two rows and columns

try this code on your notepad

< table>

< tr>

<th > blog </th >

<th > forum </th >

<th > news< /th >

< /tr >

< tr>

<td > bellanaija</td >

<td > nairaland</td >

<td > punch.com< /td >

< /tr >

< /table >

the <table> says this is a table
the < tr> says this is a row
the <td> says this is the data

now create your table the way you want

nice post . . but a few corrections . . .

HTML pages need not start with declaration <!DOCTYPE html>
in fact, if i want to be lazy and unprofessional, i'd not even input <html> and </html>tags\
i can just create a .htm or .html file and start inputting directly . . .
but like i said it is lazy and unprofessional.... and at a stage when u mix ur code with other languages or scripts on tthe same page
u might throw in errors. .

for correction purposes, it should be:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<title></title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>

i only included the character coding which could be UTF or ISO if you want

Guy cool down I never say anything is wrong with your code, its 2015 but so many people still don't update their browsers and also you can all the big websites and see for urself. Html 5 declaration most useful for developing mobile apps.
