It depends on what you want to do with the knowledge. Is it a hobby or a career? If you want to make money I would suggest tech college or community college. Otherwise don't waste your money on the challenge of a hobby.

This is the place I learned. I started with HTML and slowly worked my way up to JavaScript, CSS, PHP, Java, Obj-C, C, C++ ....... I spent about two years on it simply because it interested me. In the end it really depends on your motives.

Side note, the w3 website is where all the requirements for web browsers and internet connected devices come from. They hold MOST of the standards.

You'll find that IE is most troubling these days. Have fun!

I am wanting to lean as a hobby and to make some extra money on the side, my dad has his own business and also fixes up lots of old cars so i would like to start him a website, he has lots of friends that own their own businesses, so i could probably make quiet a bit of side money.

In that case, diving into that website would get you a pretty good start. I would have to suggest that you have some artistic talent or you'll probably come to a screeching halt like I did. There are a lot of aspects to web design, but for the little sites aesthetics is key. Because of my particular shortcoming, I ended up moving into the server side scripting and programming of PHP and Java. I liked it since I am a more analytical thinker, but to each his own.

Here is an example of what I was finally capable of after about of year of learning.

It could stand to be better i'm sure. Lol!

Anywho, if you have any other questions give me a holla.

Ha im very artistic, i want to just keep it simple! Are there not any templates or anything to use and alter, i was thinking that a company would have a template i could use and alter to look kinda how i wanted it to look without building everything from scratch

Thanks for the Info!

I never really dealt with templates, but I think most of the hosting sites have them. I'm one of those 'do it the hard way' kinda guys, and not always by choice. Lol!
