    What knowledge do I need to build a site like this? Where should I start my education?

    Assuming you are just beginning with web design, I think basic education for any website not just this one would be HTML and CSS. Then add some Javascript for some added polish. ;)

    I think CSS-Tricks is built with WordPress, so some knowledge of PHP is helpful. Chris also made some screen casts for rebuilding his personal site with WordPress. Chris also made a Basic HTML and CSS video for beginners you could check out.

    http://www.w3schools.com/ is a great resource.

    Their forum — http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/ — is also very good.

    Everything comes down to HTML and CSS: the javascript polish is just the changing of CSS and possibly some HTML; server-side languages (like PHP) are just about producing HTML and CSS under different circumstances. So, that’s definitely the foundation you want.
