Josh Goldblum shared a lot of his experiences in his previous piece, Transitioning Designers from Print to Interactive. But during Wednesday’s DesignCast, a lot of folks wanted recommendations on places to go to learn HTML, CSS and other web technologies. Here’s our list of great resources for learning about web design:
- A Book Apart: Great slim tomes on web design released by the people behind A List Apart.
- Lynda.com: Lynda is the matriarch of video tutorial sites. (A subscription for $25 a month gets you unlimited access to the videos.) Many of the videos are software-specific, but there are a few standouts for beginners:
- PeepCode: These screencasts are more advanced, for people who are working with code and development.
- Tuts+: This is a huge network of sites with tutorials for many creative fields, including web development and web design. Check out the Webdesigntuts+ offerings, and you can check out a premium tutorial for free here: 30 Days to Learn HTML & CSS.
And here are some go-to books and resources from our library:
- Visual Quickstart Guide: Adobe Dreamweaver CS5
- Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 Classroom in a Book
- From Print to Web DesignCast
- From Print to Web Breakthrough (MP3)
- Above the Fold by Brian Miller
And we’re going to be working on some new offerings in the coming months that are aimed at absolute beginners. Stay tuned!
