Brian Holt and the Frontend Masters team are putting on a free workshop today and tomorrow that is live-streamed for anyone that's interested. This is super cool because, despite the fact that there is a mountain of articles about web development out there, there are only few that start with the basics in a manner that's easy for beginners to follow. All of the materials are open source and available here as well.
I've been a fan of Brian's work for ages now, which is part of the reason why I advocated for him to join my team, and now I have the honor of working with him. I find his style of teaching really calming, which is encouraging when the subject forays into complex concepts. The livestream is free today (5/15) and tomorrow (5/16), but will also be available afterwards if you happen to miss it.
