How to learn Web Designing fro free?

What does it take to make a computer program? Can I make a website? What programming languages should I learn to start making websites. Very often, do questions like these come up in our minds and we usually don’t have any clue in this regard.

So, in this post, I’ll try to make it easier for those who want to learn website coding and want to make websites, focusing on html, CSS and JavaScript.

In my opinion, initially, Html, CSS and JavaScript are the core languages to become skilled at. These are the foundations of nearly all the websites on the web. Learning these will help you understand the very basics of programming and enable you to make your own websites –  or even will enable you to start web programming/developing as a profession.

For those who have zero knowledge about what these languages, here are brief definitions of each:

HTML – HyperText Markup Language is the main language for displaying web pages and other information that can be displayed in a web browser. Simply put, it’s what you see if you right click on any web page and “View Page Source.”

CSS – Cascading Style Sheets set the design and style properties to web elements such as the fonts styles, menus etc. They are embedded in the source of the website. The browser recognizes these styles and accordingly, the web page and its elements are displayed.

JavaScript – is a programming language that makes web pages interactive. Fancy fading buttons, sleek dropdown menus etc. are often created with the use of JS.
