A super quick overview on what I learned this week.
1. First HTML lesson: it is all about <tag>
If I have to explain what is a tag to my granma I would say: tag is like a brick for a home or even better it is like a bone for a human body.
A set of tags creates HTML that is the skeleton of a web page.
An opening tag and a closing tag create together an element.
3. Close tags
Always remember that each element has to be closed with the magic “/” in the closing tag.

Otherwise the god of web will judge you!
4. target=”_blank” story of a controversial attribute
Firstly, what is an attribute? Attribute add some information to an element, for example target attribute says where to open a link. Adding the value _blank the link will open in a new window of the browser. Now, go back to the point, usually when there is a link to an external source we are used to click and see another tab of the browser open next. Well, you know what? That’s bad. Kaboom!
Because by using _blank we are taking a choise instead of the user, maybe the user prefers to stay in the same window of the broser.
(yeah I know)
In conclusion target=”_blank” is a bad practice, so don’t use it.
Otherwise the god of web will judge you.
