See that chunk of code at the bottom? That’s a programming language called HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and it’s what gives a website structure. The appearance of a site is controlled by an accompanying language called CSS (Cascading Style Sheet). That’s where you can tweak the layout, fonts, backgrounds and more of your website. Together, HTML and CSS form the basis of every Web page and application! But if you wanna make your website look like it’s been coded by a pro, you’re gonna need more than just HTML and CSS. Introducing Bootstrap!
