Web & Code
More than 40% (2021) of the entire internet is created on WordPress, if you still don’t know it, it is never too late to learn it. Creating websites, blogs, eCommerce with this CMS is very easy, I can help you with more advanced requirements of this.
HTML is not a programming language as many think, it is a markup language that uses such tags (p, h1, title) to facilitate the creation of web pages and help SEO positioning in search results. HTML is the core to start creating amazing web pages.
Git y Github
I Have version control of the code is easier if we use Git with Github or Bitbucket, we no longer use things like (project-final.pho) and we can have total control of our code, returning to specific points in time if we made any mistakes and allowing us to work as a team more efficiently.
If your web page is not visible in the search results, there is something you are not doing right. With SEO tools such as word structure, link building, social networks, sitemap, robots.txt and others, you can speed up your website to be found easily.
CSS and SASS are the perfect complement to give life and color to your HTML code, SASS gives the possibility to CSS to have variables, mixin, functions and others that with CSS it was impossible to solve now.
