  Old  Newbies! Here's a simple way to start learning HTML & CSS

I've been on this forum for years (this is where I really started freelancing) and I've always seen questions about how to get started with HTML and CSS in multiple threads, so I thought I'd tell you all about Codecademy. This website is a helpful place for learning code via short exercises. It's interactive and it helps you learn without having to read a book. The best part is that you don't need any software to get started, everything is done on the website.

I've compiled a list of simple exercises that, to the best of my ability, are in correct order as to how you'd typically learn the basics of HTML and CSS:

- HTML: Fundamentals
- More with HTML
- CSS: Coding with Style
- My First Webpage
- Intro to CSS Positioning
- Advanced CSS positioning
- Build a Website

Do note that you won't learn everything from these simple tutorials, but they might help break the wall between you and beginning to code websites.

I hope this helps, and please leave any questions below.

I've found many students find it easier to work from books when learning, rather than flicking back and forth with tutorials on screen. So when asked how to learn HTML & CSS I've been recommending this book - it's by far the best book I've come across in my 15+ years as a web designer:
