I know this is kind of out of place for the warrior forum, but can anyone recommend a good starting point to learn web design? HTML, CSS, etc.?


thanks,

    I'd go pick up a webdesign for dummies book or just do a search on google. What is your current skill level when it comes to html and css?

    You'll need some good books. I read many design and html books. Practice is the best way to learn. Just keep designing stuff. Find a design you really like and try to duplicate it. Do that many times until things start looking good. You learn a lot by doing, but the books helped a lot too.

    You could also try Lynda.com, they have a really good coding section.

    Which is it?

    While there are some technical things you can learn about design, I don't know that everyone can really do design.

    It comes more naturally to some than others.

    Learning html and css are more about learning coding.

      There is two aspects to webdesign

      1st Is the principles to make the website aesthetically pleasing.
      2nd The technical component or coding component

      Like an artist, first the vision, then putting the brush to canvas

      Been a technical person I always find the 1st part harder, the 2nd step alot easier there is tools such as dreamweaver that can help, by giving you templates and a wysiwyg interface . The other way to learn is find a website you like, save the page and use your favorite editor to reverse engine it.

    Try several sources and find one you like. Lynda.com is good, so is the W3schools.

    The thing is, you'll reasonate better with some writers than others, so look around a little bit and find a writing/teaching style you're comfortable with.

    Good luck.

      Is that what happens when you resonate with a writer because they seem reasonable?

      To the OP... see this.

    Online tutorials can be a great resource ( some mentioned above ) or Google learn html / css free.

    I find that i learn best through practice, if you can set yourself up some free hosting or develop locally. Build some pages with tuts you find, play around with it and you will have no problems picking it up.

    Books are great for offline references also i must add.

    it is a good way for starting with HTML, CSS . I gonna explain different way for learning. First ,choose any web site that you like.Then open html source of this web site , copy all codes into your text file and save .html to your computer.Then start changing codes and save it.You can easily see what are the changings by visual . So , i think its a good way , i learned like this. By the way , you can use visual studio for creating dynamic web sites. There ara too many videos on youtube.

    I've built about 20 sites. Every single tut (aka in my sig) is made from the things I had to learn to build them. So 99.9% of the time, anything you need to learn has already been copy and paste ready for you there.

      Well learn the basics first, I've seen a couple of informative sites on Google. There are even videos available. And I guess, nothing beats application. So keep practicing.

    You can check Online video tutorials & training | lynda.com it's a paid website but they have tutorials there for most of the thing you might like to learn and more. They use screenshot video tutorials that teach you what to do.

      You can try to search for video tutorials on YouTube. You can also download of buy ebooks about HTML and website design. Or you can also try to read articles about web design on the internet first.

    codecademy.com and/or thenewboston.com are two fantastic websites for learning web languages. That is about the best you can find for free (in my opinion). If you're willing to pay, however, a tutor is far more effective.
