I would like to know the answer to this question as well it'd would be nice to see how the web designers/developers got started around here....Meecrob said:What are some good resources for learning HTML, CSS, etc. I've been searching around del.icio.us, and found a few good ones for self-teaching. Anyone have some favorites?
Agreed there's nothing like an actual project to make you learn stuff. I wanted to build a portfolio website, and so planned what I wanted it to look like and just googled and hunted around to find out how to do each bit, and as I've built each site I've learnt more.Stampyhead said:If I came across something I didn't know how to do I would pull out my books or turn to Google and figure out how to do it. I think that's the best way to learn anything.
It's about as easy as becoming a painter. Anyone can throw paint on a canvas, but a fraction can paint a beautiful image. Web design is easy theoretically, but it takes years and years of practice to do well. Just because you know how to use photoshop and dreamweaver doesn't make you a good web designer. I wouldn't say web design is the easiest thing in the world. I't just easy to get started as there are countless ways to learn.Mr. Mister said:Web design has to be one of the easiest things in the world. It's extremely simple and with View Page Source there at your disposal, there are billions of examples.
