Functional HTML

Mandy Michael Front End Development Manager Seven West Media

HTML, the foundation of the web! With so much time being spent on typed javascript, functional programming, unit tests, visual regression testing, tools, frameworks and a drive to write better more efficient code we often forget that the web starts with HTML.

Let’s talk HTML, semantics and why choosing the right html elements will help you write better, cleaner more efficient code not just in your HTML but your CSS and Javascript as well. Most importantly why HTML is so vital in improving your projects overall functionality for people and for bots.
