In my last post, I discussed how to create a landing page without touching any code. This post is a beginner’s introduction for those who want to get their hands dirty with programming and code a landing page. In order to create a landing page from scratch, the minimum programming skills you’ll need to have are some degree of versatility in HTML and CSS, and how they factor into creating your landing page. This post doesn’t cover how to register and configure your website name nor does it cover how to actually host a website, rather it is focused on introducing you to the two basic programming languages required in creating a rudimentary landing page.
In our opinion, with the sheer amount of easy-to-use landing page creator tools available on the web, the majority of people interested in landing page should not be programming their own landing pages from scratch. However, if your interest is to become better versed in using programming to create real websites then creating a landing page from scratch is a useful exercise as it will teach you fundamentals across a few different web topics.
