0:00 You may be thinking, what is there to HTML? It's pretty easy, right? I mean, here's Yahoo. We could write that up in some really simple HTML.
0:10 In fact, here it is in 1996. If you go to the Wayback Machine this is the front page of Yahoo and basically it's like a Yellow Pages of websites.
0:19 It wasn't really a search engine. It was like a bunch of people just going around the internet going "That's interesting. "We'll add it to Yahoo."
0:25 Totally crazy. One of the demos we're going to do during this chapter is we're going to rebuild this site almost exactly like this with no CSS.
0:34 Very, very little styles, just pure HTML. So yeah, pretty simple. Kind of blows my mind that's a $100 billion company at their peak, but there it is.
0:43 That's Yahoo. So, the web is simple, right? Well, it was, it was simple. It's getting a lot more interesting, a lot more complex.
0:52 As people go from building documents on the web that are linked to building applications that are on the web that are responsive
1:01 that are progressive, that do interactive things like this Turo site here. So, Turo is a place, kind of like Airbnb for cars.
1:09 And these are private car listings that you can rent. Get a Ferrari, a 2007 Ferrari, for just $695 a day. Pretty awesome.
1:19 So this is a really cool site, very nicely done. It's beautiful, but it's also highly interactive
1:24 with the map, with the progressive infinite scroll stuff going on and whatnot. So I would bet that this HTML is not quite that simple.
1:33 We're going to focus on building a good foundation talking about some of the modern features like HTML5 and so on.
1:39 So that you can build apps more like this, less like that.
