W3Schools' is an educational website for learning web technologies online.[1] Content includes tutorials and references relating to HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JSON, PHP, Python, AngularJS, SQL, Bootstrap, Node.js, jQuery, XQuery, AJAX, and XML. Created in 1998, its name is derived from the World Wide Web, but is not affiliated with the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium).[2] It is run by Refsnes Data in Norway.[3] W3Schools presents thousands of code examples. By using the TryIt editor, readers can edit examples and execute the code in a sandbox. W3Schools' examples have been criticized as "ugly and badly formatted", however their pages were stated as "fast" and properly linked.[4][unreliable source?]
