Here’s a Quick Way to Learn HTML/CSS (web design)
Well i'll start off by saying im not trying to get you to buy this, just thought i would write a little about it and share my experience because i liked it so much.
My father's friend recently asked me if i would like to work for his small out of the house website design company. Me being pretty good with computer's told him i would take it , but i only had about 2 weeks to learn html/css. On their own the two are not to complicated, but it was still a push to get through a whole style of programming in that amount of time with going on vacation and working 5 days out of the week at a ware house. Reading every day i got through a good quarter of the book and could easily make you a webpage, and look up the css to make it look pretty.
The book it self was 40$ and looks like a pretty big challenge (500 pages ) but if you read for about one hour a day you will know how to build you own easy website. The author speaks to you like you are a child, which i personnely think works best for learning anything because there shouldnt be anything you cannot figure out on your own or from the book. I know your saying 500 pages is a lot, but to be honest you can do about 150 pages and know enough basics to insert and learn most everything else you need along the way while using the book as a reference. I started the job today and could understand a good amount of what was going on, will show examples of my websites in the next couple days. The only reason i feel the need to talk about this book is because you can learn how to do so much on the internet in just a couple days, i went online for 4 years everyday and didn't even know basic html, and after a few hours of reading, i can explain most pages to you.
