Trinity of Web Coding

Today, if you wish to start your own blog or set up an affiliate marketing website, there is an abundance of options out there for you to pick from. There are free themes, templates, made-to-order websites and ready-to-use portals rolled out for you, based upon how much money you can spend.

But when you glance back to around even 6 to 7 years back, these options were fairly limited, and around 12 to 15 years backwards down the line, such options were absolutely unheard of.  Back then, you could only venture online if you were extremely adept at web coding, as well as a sound hand at managing the back end of a website. For those who are used to the extra-simple and amazingly user-friendly admin area of your website’s backend, it would almost shock you to discover how the backend used to appear those days.

Now this is where the role of the trinity as cited above, comes in. In order to be a coding genius and a well-versed Webmaster, having a firm grasp of the Coding Trinity is a must. The Coding Trinity can be found on websites all over the internet, and http://devastations.net is a prime example – a website dedicated to Indie Rock. They use the technology to enhance their Indie Rock music news. This basically comprises of:-

  • HTML– HyperText Markup Language
  • Cascading Style Sheets or CSS in short
  • JavaScript

How to go about as a beginner…..

Each of these is integral to coding, and the World Wide Web as a whole. What’s even more significant to note is the fact that while JavaScript needs to be learned separately, HTML and CSS are somewhat inter-related. The crux of the matter is that HTML is where you need to start with, as a complete beginner. You can learn the nuances of Cascading Style Sheets, or rather you can learn to create beautiful Cascading Style Sheets only after you have attained proficiency in a fairly advanced level of CSS.

While the CSS Syntaxes are quite different, the knowledge of HTML is a must for the same to be a success. Once you have studied, understood and learnt basic HTML, intermediary HTML and advanced HTML, you can easily follow it up with full-blown CSS at various laps, phases and levels. You’ll be delighted at how free-flowing, easy to learn, cohesive, seamless and inter-related both of these are. And of course to attain undisputed mastery, you need to latch on to JavaScript in the end. While this might seem like a whole new world for you, the basic principles of the entire trinity, are more or less the same.
