Final Thoughts and Wrap-up for the Year
Yesterday was our last day of class for the year. I have enjoyed teaching each of you this year and I hope everyone has a great summer and a great school year next year.
I want to share with you the websites I recommended yesterday for those to might be interested in learning more about HTML/CSS and web design.
Khan Academy – Khan a small computer science section that includes some courses on web design. I generally like Khan Academy, but admit I haven’t gone through these courses.
Tutorials – I learn a lot from tutorials posted on web design blogs. Here are a couple that you might find interesting:
- 20 Fresh HTML5 and CSS3 Menu Tutorials – shows you how to create sophisticated looking menus for a website or app. I also like the site that posted this article.
- 20 Impressive CSS3 Techniques, Libraries and Examples – These may be a little advance,d but they give you a taste of what is possible with HTML and CSS. Also another great site.
Other programming languages – This article lists several places you can go to learn programming. Most of these are for languages other than HTML and CSS.
Tutsplus.com – I didn’t mention Tuts+ yesterday, but they have excellent tutorials and courses (some paid, some free) for a large variety of web design and development topics.
Youtube – Go to Youtube and search HTML tutorial, CSS tutorial, or web design tutorial. You’ll find a huge number of decent video tutorials.
