These are materials for an informal class that I am teaching in web development.
This organization is the primary authority on internet standards. This is the best starting place for learning web development. I recomend the first four html tutorials:
- CSS Interitance
This article explains some of the nuance of CSS inheritance.
- Web Safe Cheat Sheet
This is a nice little infographic listing the fonts that are available for use with CSS.
- CSS Typography Reference Sheet
- GitHub Bootcamp
Git is the most widely used DVCS (distributed version control system) available today. It’s a way to backup and track changes to your code and share them with others. Version control is always a little confusing and scary at first, but it will simplify the ways you work and make you more confident and successful.
This is my favorite IDE (fancy text editor). For my class you only need the PHP version. It’s all free, and it runs on pretty much everything.
This is another free program you should have. I try to avoid using FTP for deployment these days, but sometimes this can be indispensable.
- HTML 5 Boilerplate
“A rock-solid default for HTML5 awesome.” This site has lots of great ideas and best practices for web-developers.
This is what what we’ll be using for back-end programming. This site has excellent documentation.
This is a more advanced version of CSS. Skip past the grey part and just read the blue part.
