Recently I wanted to do a few side projects that required building web applications. But it has been almost 3 years since I have done anything web development related in my life. Understandably, I am not horribly out of practice and out of date. So I decided to start from scratch and relearn web development from the basics and upwards. To that end I have started following some tutorials that have been excellent so far. I figure I should share them here in case someone else is a similar situation to myself and wants to know where to go to start learning:
- Codecademy’s HTML and CSS Tutorial
- Codecademy’s JQuery Tutorial
- Ruby on Rails Tutorial by Michael Hartl
I highly recommend the Ruby on Rails tutorial. Michael Hartl does a fantastic job of guiding you through Rails and web development in general!
