Getting started with your first portfolio - Part 1: Creating index.html

  1. Create a directory called <GH Username>
  2. Create a new file called index.html under the new directory
  3. Type the following snippet into index.html

    <!DOCTYPE html>
     <meta charset="utf-8" />
     <title>My Portfolio</title>
     <h1>Hello! My name is [name] ✌️</h1>
  4. Now, we are going to see how our code looks on the browser. In your terminal, navigate to your <GH Username> directory, and type in open index.html - this will allow you to see your changes by automatically opening a tab on your browser for your html file.

  5. Alternatively: open Chrome, and press Ctrl + O on Windows/Linux or Cmd + O on Mac to open the file explorer dialog box. Then, navigate to your <GH Username> directory and open the index.html file
  6. You will see something like this on your browser
