Welcome to week 7 of Intro to Creative Web Dev!
Now you’ve seen the fundamentals of coding in p5.js. This week you’ll be learning a new language called HTML, and using that to build a webpage!
Work through the activities in this page to complete the week.
To help you transition from p5.js to HTML, first read through this tutorial:
After you have your Replit editor set up with a new HTML project, read through this tutorial:
Now you know how to make a webpage by writing HTML in the Replit editor.
To practice that, create a webpage using at least ten HTML tags.
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>My First Webpage</title> </head> <body> <h1>Hello World</h1> <p>Welcome to my first webpage!</p> </body> </html>

This week is all about setting up your environment and learning HTML, which tells your browser what types of content to display. Your browser has some default rules about how to style different types of content. For example, headings are large and bold, and links are blue and underlined.
If you want to customize the styles of your content, like changing colors or layout, you’ll need to go beyond HTML and use CSS.
For now, focus on HTML without worrying too much about styling. You’ll learn about CSS next week!
