Markup Languages and Applications 


The ICT40120 - Certificate IV in Information Technology (Web Development) will have you explore integral markup languages that can provide you with the skills and knowledge to pursue career opportunities as a developer. 

There are plenty of benefits that come with learning specific markup languages if you intend on having a long-term career in web development. These include: 

  • Preparedness for career success: Knowing specific languages can put you ahead of the career game as you'll have the opportunity to be able to solve problems quickly the more languages you know. Developers who have a broad knowledge of different languages are ahead of the game because the results are different for each one, so it helps to know several when problem-solving.​
  • Increased salary potential: Employers are willing to pay more if you know any of the trending markup languages. As a developer, you're expected to keep yourself updated with the latest trends so possessing knowledge of several languages or being willing to learn more can work to your advantage. Employers are willing to pay for your expertise, especially if you know languages that are valuable to the company.
  • Having a versatile skill set: Knowing multiple languages means you'll be able to work on interesting projects, which can give you variety across your job responsibilities. By only knowing one language, you risk yourself of doing the same thing over and over, which can lead to boredom. Having knowledge of a variety of languages means you'll better adapt to the changes of the industry and have a versatile skill set, making you sought-after by employers.

The markup languages you will learn in this course include:

  • HTML: This markup language is used for structuring a web page and its content. HTML is known for its easy integration in other programming languages. 
  • CSS: This language is used for describing the presentation of web pages, including colours, layout and fonts. By using CSS, developers have control over the look and feel of a website. 
  • JavaScript: This is a text-based programming language that is used on both the client-side and server-side that allows web pages to become interactive. One of the biggest advantages of using JavaScript is that it has the ability to support all modern browsers, making it incredibly versatile.
