HTML First

published on 2024/01/11

The main goal of HTML First is to substantially widen the pool of people who can work on web software codebases. This is desirable because by lowering or removing barriers, it allows a greater number of people to become web programmers and to increase their income. It's also desirable from a business perspective because it decreases the cost of building software, and decreases the amount of resources required to hire - a notoriously resource intensive process.

A secondary goal of HTML First is to make it more enjoyable and seamless to build web software. Most web programmers are familiar with the excitement of seeing their product come together rapidly as they transition smoothly between the text editor and the browser, with very few unexpected potholes or context switches. But today it takes several years of mastering tools and frameworks to get to that stage. HTML First principles should allow people to unlock that feeling, and level of mastery, much earlier on in their coding journey.
