Learning CSS


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi to everyone,

 

I was wondering if some of you could please reccommend a good book (maybe even videos) on learning CSS. I am aware of W3C Shools but I was also looking into a small investment in buying a book which would be useful for someone like me who has little experience in CSS and HTML.

 

I have been using CSS for about 2>3 months but I am at a basic level. I can style elements but there is obviously a lot to learn. I am a designer but I have little experience in web design. However this is something I would like to learn more about as some of my clients are often asking if I can build and design websites.

 

Thanks for any help with this!

 

Kind regards,

 

James

Hi James,

 

Sometimes a fee-based resource isn't the best.  Especially with books, as once-printed, they fixed information, and aren't updated with the latest developments.  Courses like www.lynda.com/css are a bit more flexible, but then you can come across sites like this:  http://www.cssbasics.com/.  Free, resourceful and informative, but kept up to date, that site has more than enough to give you all the resources.

 

LESS CSS is the new standard coming along, but there are few resources out there for it at present.

Also another resource is http://www.codecademy.com/

In our documentation, I wrote a section in the How to Customize doc page which provides a number of services recommended if you wish to learn coding. http://docs.pagelines.com/customize/how-to-customize

Thanks to all for the infomation. I have used Code Cademy to help get started with the basics and I did find the site useful. However, I haven't yet had a look at the Customize Doc's page created by Danny so I'll also be taking a look at that. Thanks again!

Hi Danny,

Is this in reference to V2 Framework or DMS.

 

Thanks in advance

It doesn't matter, if you wish to learn CSS use one of the following training websites that are linked on that page, it doesn't matter what PageLines product you're using.
