You don’t have to rack your brain to remember HTML 5 tags. Or cram all the tags.

Knowing the function of each of them, where and how to find them will do.

Programming is welcoming to everyone — who decides to learn it. I say this because there is no magic in it. No magic wand is required either. Answers to what you might be seeking answers for are already everywhere around you on the web.

When I started learning HTML, my instructor told me, “I can’t teach you all the tags”. And that was the case. Your instructor won’t…
