Where can I fully learn HTML, CSS, PHP online?

I'm set on learning how to code webpages and hopefully become good enough to provide services. I've searched Google for tutorials and all of that, but it seems most places only teach basic to intermediate lessons and then kind of stop. I want to start from the basics and end with the ability to code professional websites. So I'm guessing I will also need to learn php and javascript in addition? It'd be nice if there was a website that taught all of that with the intention of training you to become knowledgeable web designer. if there was a course that required a small fee I'd probably be willing to pay it. So do you guys know of any places? Thanks.

      The best thing. Buy a domain. Then practice launching it. Joomla wordpress easy to setup. Id say focus on php and jquery functions. The css and html is a little easier to learn. But once you learn php youll beable to save money without paying other people to make your site do what u want

        I already have a few domains and I'm very familiar with Wordpress already but I think being able to make my own websites will benefit me a lot more. So I should start with HTML and CSS then? What would I learn after that to make a more interactive website? Thanks.

    I would recommend going for a web tutorial, you can try either lynda.com or PHP Video Tutorials For Web Designers - KillerPHP.com .
    You need to start with: HTML, CSS, Photoshop (basic stuff); Only after you're done with all of these you can get started on PHP, MySQL; Javascript/jQuery . The PHP/MySQL would benefit you more than the js since you'll be needing to build a CMS for your website. You can also try Wordpress for a ready made CMS.

    Good luck!

      Thank you for the help. As for photoshop, what kind of basic skills do you think I should have specifically? And how does the CMS or content management work? I know nothing about it?

    Take a look at this tutorial:

    Web Developer From Scratch - Killervideostore.com

    I would recommend doing those, but definitely skip the Dreamweaver CS6 section - you don't need any of that.

      Looks very nice! I really want to learn from them though the price is a little bit steep for me right now...
      Now that I see there is a whole course for html5 and css3 is that what I should actually be learning? Because I've been doing This and is that html different?

        Yes, that's what you need doing . You can also try the monthly plan at lynda.com lynda.com library | Trial Subscription (i think the cheapest is 25$), but lynda.com are awesome. You don't really need access to the exercise files if you go for the cheapest deal.

    Or, go for lynda.com library | Trial Subscription . You can get the free 7 days trial and see how it goes.

    Well, to answer your questions. It basically depends on what you want to do.
    If you like working with the Frontend and you're creative and love to play with graphics but you don't want to code you can be a Designer.
    If you like working with the Frontend and you're not creative and would rather just code than you need basic Photoshop to be able to take a design apart and slice it into different parts (cutting images, looking over font styles and so on..basic stuff) and the very least you need HTML/CSS. Most Frontend coders do a lot of Javascript/jQuery too.
    If you want to work with the Backend then you need all of the above plus either a ready built CMS like Wordpress or PHP/MySQL (although you will still need to know at least some PHP/MySQL for Wordpress).

      Sounds sort of complicated for a beginner such as myself. What I want to do is code sites without having to become an expert graphic designer but be good enough to make a nice webpage. I already have some photoshop experience, like I've made signatures and what not. So, considering that, what do you think I need to learn besides html, css, javascript? And sorry, but what exactly do you mean by backend? Do I have to work with backend a lot to create a website and upload it to the web?

    This explains a lot better than I ever could:
    I Don't Speak Your Language: Frontend vs. Backend - Treehouse Blog

    It it a little complicated, you're right. It basically depends on what you want to do, the most straightforward way to make money by coding is to learn HTML/CSS and Javascript and get hired as a frontend developer on one of the many freelancer websites: Odesk, Elance etc. After you're there you can focus on something different, but until then that's all you need .

    It's great if you already have some basic Photoshop experience, you're good to go to focus mostly on coding. No matter what you choose be consistent and practice every single day. When I was learning HTML/CSS I was spending around 12 hours every day just trying out stuff. I would do my tutorials and then I would code as much as possible. Just design basic websites and code them, that's the only way to learn.

      Wow thank you, it's definitely much more clear now.

    When learning a new piece of technology, I've always tended to go to the official website or code depository. I went to php.org when I wanted to learn php, djangoproject.com with django etc etc.

    Most official websites will have communities like forums, mailing lists, irc channels etc where you can pickup advice and network.

    I know this thread looks like it's been beat to death, but I would go with what a few other people have suggested..

    Codeacademy and Killer PHP are great resources.

    I recently came across this site from Web Dev reddit, which has HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery elements and explanations. I find it much easier to navigate (but it's less complete) than W3's website.

      Hello,

      HTML, CSS and Javascript are essential for sure. They are foundation languages used in web development and the more you understand their elements the better.

      Here is some free training by Microsoft offered to prep for their exam, Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3.

      Learn HTML5, HTML5 Training, JumpStart Training-Microsoft Virtual Academy

      You may want to study and benchmark your skills against the exam. Certifications are great to have and provide goals and learning objectives to help guide you in your personal development.

      All the best with your learning.

    If you want to learn from the basic than w3c school is the best site.

    Start with basic than there are so many ebooks are available on the net so that you can learn advanced topics as well.

      Best way is the following:

      Very best) Leave it to the experts and support the economy by hiring a programmer.
      Best) Take a class at a college that does a lot of hands-on teaching and tests.
      Next best) Hire someone to teach you.
      Also good) Buy a highly accredited (not just "acclaimed") interactive course to teach you.
      Worst) Try to read things online to learn on your own.

    W3Schools has some very basic info, but don't expect to learn how to program there! Otherwise you'll be just one of those programmers that has no clue that I have to go fix everything because they didn't know what they were doing.

      w3schools.com is the best option for learning HTML, CSS, PHP. I recommend this site for you because they offer live example with the each topic so that you can easily check the working of the code.
