📝 I am author of [Learn HTML]( https://web.dev/learn/html ) and co-author of [CSS: The Definitive Guide]( https://learning.oreilly.com/library/view/css-the-definitive/9781098117603/ )
👯 I’m looking to collaborate on projects that help reduce inequality in STEM and society as a whole.

⚡ Fun fact: I have a public health degree. Oddly, it comes in handy as a web developer, technical writer, and professional cat herder.

All modules in the Learn HTML course are now available.
This course was written by Estelle Weyl ( https://front-end.social/@estelle ) and takes you through an in-depth journey to really understand HTML.
I’ve been writing HTML for a very long time, and I learned things while editing this course. There really is a lot more to HTML than you might think, and it’s definitely worth revisiting some of the things you think you already know. Take a look, and don’t forget to check out some of the other courses in our growing collection.
Yes, the 20-part Learn HTML series has no article titled #Accessibility because accessibility isn’t a separate topic.
The 20-article learn HTML is a 20-section series on learning HTML, which is accessible by default. Our job as developers is to not fuck that up! Teaching you how to not fuck up accessibility, and rather ensure accessibility, is covered in Every Single Section of the series because it is the core of HTML.
I wrote a thing ¶
I should add, if you think you really know HTML, I wrote a thing: https://web.dev/learn/html/
Turns out there might be a lot more to HTML than you might have thought. I learned (and shared) a ton of nuggets along the way, and diligently updated MDN in the process.
This HTML course for web developers provides a solid overview for developers, from novice to expert level HTML.
If you’re completely new to HTML, you will learn how to build structurally sound content.
If you’ve been building websites for years, this course may fill in gaps in knowledge that you didn’t even know you had.
Along this journey, we will be building the structure for MachineLearningWorkshop.com. No machines were harmed in the creation of this series.
This is not a complete reference.
Each section introduces the section topic with brief explanations and examples, providing you an opportunity to explore further.
There will be links to topic references, such as MDN and WHATWG specifications, and other web.dev articles. While this is not an accessibility course, each section will include accessibility best practices and specific issues, with links to deeper dives on the topic.
Each section will have a short assessment to help people confirm their understanding.
