Everyone these days seems to want to become a software developer and has been asking me for tips on how to get involved. Now most people don’t actually want to change professions, but would rather just have a bit more domain knowledge so they can’t get bulls***ted about by developers.
Everything on the web is free and available I wouldn’t pay for a course. If you get stuck, Stack Overflow is the place you will end up – where someone will have already asked your question.
But where do you start?
Every website presents HTML code to the browser – so start there.
Then in order to style it you need CSS.
If you know the basics of all of these things then you can build websites.
The best resource I have found is W3Schools: http://www.w3schools.com/default.asp
It is completely free and each ‘course’ will only take a few weeks if you dedicate some good time to it.
This site has details about everything HTML and also has little tests and if you do actually want to pay: certificates if you so please!
