Even though I have no experience with web design, I've been having a ton of fun working on my website this week. At one point in time (a long time ago, thankfully), if you wanted to learn a new (programming) language, you would go to the bookstore and grab the thickest, heaviest book for language. And when I say thickest, I mean that the length of these books was measured in inches of thickness, not pages. These books were seriously long, on the order of unabridged dictionaries!
Thankfully, that is no longer the case. This week, I have found innumerable resources on the internet on html, css, and web design in general. The best part of it is that most of them are free (as in beer)! In less than a week, I've gotten the basics of css down and am hacking away at my website like any other programming project.
Here are some of the resources I've found most helpful so far:
- Wordpress (blogging software)
- freecsstemplates.org (website designs)
- html dog (html & css tutorials)
- Portable Apps (for editing & uploading on the go)
