I started coding and web development a few months ago. Though online courses have helped me a lot, I’d really feel like a good book with the very basics would benefit me a lot (I don’t have a mentor or anything, so when I get stuck I feel very frustrated, I fell a book could be of help in those cases).
Any good recommendations? I’m still learning basic html and css but I’m planning on moving ahead with other languages once I get the basics of these two.
Okay, this is advice I give to many people. You think you want a book. You really want a course in programming. Harvard’s EdX CS50 is free to audit (90 bucks to get a certificate if that matters to you). HTML is a markup language. It only highlights text with instructions for a browser to layout the text in certain ways. CSS, too. Real application logic (“do this when the user does that”) requires programming. And while I love FCC, this is an area in which I believe they fall down. Without understanding programming fundamentals, it’s easy to get lost without the scaffolding of FCC. Good luck!
