@noahgelman i know just if is there a good book to read i really like to know, so i can buy it ASAP.And I am learning html and css like for a week now.It is really simple, ok maybe not to simple but it isn’t hard at last how i see it :D
1. The first steps I would say is; getting a decent editor with code highlightning, I use Panic Inc.’s Coda editor in OS X, and after that you have to figure out what kind of language you would like to work with. PHP & MySQL is the most common to start out with, but before you start on that you should have a basic understanding of HTML & CSS.
3. Your first website should contain HTML & CSS and could be as simple as; your personal page or your online storage place for code snippets or something like that. Learn the very basics before you start with web development. I do not recommend y ou to skip class on this one if you really want to learn this.
4. I’m not a web developer, I’m a web designer. It started out as a hobby, and ended up as my main profession – and it took me many years to get here!
