If you’re putting anything up on the web, learning HTML will help you make cleaner, clearer content, whether you’re embarking on a new career in web development or just adding another weapon to your zombie fighting arsenal. 

But so many books about HTML are boring, technical and great for the insomniac. Plus you barely get to kill any zombies in them! Not so here. You’ll be taking zombies out left and right as you learn about HTML, how it works, and put it into action. You may have heard of “smarter” or “better” ways to learn HTML and they are, but this book builds on those techniques with lots of practice adding both fun and analogies that help the concepts stick like zombies to an apocalypse.

What You’ll Learn
Besides learning how to punch a zombie in the HTML5, you’ll learn the major HTML elements that make up a modern web page and how to put them to good use. You’ll learn the structural underpinnings of a web page, how to mark up text, how to wrangle attributes, and ways to embed images, audio, and video. By the time you’re done you’ll have a good handle on the basic tenants of HTML (the foundation of the web) and how to build your own simple web page.

How You’ll Learn
You won’t just passively take in the content, though. You’ll use guided tutorials to better understand each tag and concept, and get a handle on how they work. All the code and directions are provided as both codepen tutorials and downloadable html files. You can work with them on the codepen site or on your own device.

The author teaches from his professional, first hand knowledge of HTML5. But not every website you work on will be the latest and greatest. Often in your journey across the post-apocalyptic web-scape you’ll find sites that are zombies in and of themselves. Here you’ll learn both the latest and greatest and the tags that just won’t die, giving you the tools you need to update, maintain, and conquer any site you come across.

There’s no reason good learning can’t live right along side good fun. So grab your computer, grab your sense of humor and hit that buy button. We’ve got sites to build.
