HTML & CSS Is Hard – A friendly web development tutorial image/svg+xml

Learning HTML and CSS is hard, but it doesn’t have to be. This 14-chapter tutorial is one of the friendliest HTML and CSS guides on the Internet. We’ll walk you through everything from selecting a good text editor (which is surprisingly important) to building full-fledged, professional-quality web pages from scratch.

This is possibly the most comprehensive guide to web development ever. OK, possibly not, but it is really rather good. The next time somebody asks me where to start, I’ll know where to point them.

Sometimes, to start a journey into learning something huge and complex, you need to learn something small and simple. JavaScript is huge and complex, but you can baby step into it by learning small and simple things. If you’re a web designer, I think there is one thing in particular that you can learn that is extremely empowering.

This is the thing I want you to learn: When you click on some element, change a class on some element.

Basic stuff, but I really like Chris’ approach. He has a knack of breaking down complex topics into bitesize chunks. I’ve been thinking about creating some screencasts myself, and if I do, I’ll probably attempt to copy Chris’ approach.
