HTML5 is the code that makes up the entire website; everything on the page is made up of HTML5 elements. HTML5 is relatively recent, but incredibly important, to the field of web design. This is because it allows for better implementation across browsers; instead of needing to write separate, specific code for each potential browser an end user could be utilizing, the code will work the same for all browsers. HTML5 is code that makes up the entire website so it is clearly a critical skill for the modern web designer; however coding the whole website independently can be unwieldy and time consuming, so other tools are also now available to make utilizing HTML5 to design a website more efficient.
Build tools like Grunt and Gulp do the boring work for you. Basically, they help you implement your framework by putting the elements of the framework in the right spots. Grunt and Gulp do essentially the same thing but in different ways; it’s still important for the modern web designer to know the difference between these two tools and use them effectively to save time building the website. Most people end up generally using one or the other, but there are strengths and weaknesses to both so it’s critical that the modern web designer know how to use both Grunt and Gulp.
