Here might be a good place to start...

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

There are many resources available out there if you look hard enough. YouTube would also be a good shout.

Once you have completed some courses on codecademy head over to Udemy to take part in a much longer web dev course.

Kind regards

code academy is a good place to start like the others said, Html and CSS are pretty easy and it wont take you long to get a good grasp of the fundamentals. If you really want to learn start a side project of your own or find one to build the problems you run into building it will be far more valuable than any lesson on a website. After that its gonna be important for you to figure out what you don't know and what you want to learn.

also as you run into problems it sounds cheesy but google really does have all the answers you just have to get good at finding the answer. Places like w3schools will be your savior. Finally I feel like people are intimidated to post questions on TTG that are lower level, dont be there are some really knowledgeable people on here to learn from.

I used to suggest codecademy, but they sometimes encourage bad habits.
I would recommend [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] they have live examples and you can learn what you want whenever you want and as fast as you want.

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ] is also a good site to know. ( I wouldn't suggest asking questions though because nearly every question has been answered for html.

Download a template and build off it, Follow some tutorials and extend your learnings by trying new things with what you learn.

eh everyone recommending sites. There are plenty of free books you can "download" . Take your time learning through those, then go ahead and touch base with codecademy.

I would look into [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] to learn.

W3C are the standards set to define how the web should work, in a sense.
W3Schools do a good job of teaching how to use particular elements and go into a lot of detail, with examples, of how to do things.

I've used the site myself countless times trying to find something for reference.

I agree with some of the previous users' options however, they have their pros and cons.

Codecademy is a good option, but I do not think it is very thorough.
w3schools is good for a reference, not for right out learning unless you are good at teaching yourself.

I started using Free Code Camp recently and I have to say it is by far the best option.
There is over 2000 hours of practice, and unlike codecademy employers actively hire people from free code camp. They have sections for Front-end, Back-end, and Full-stack sections that all have 400 hours each of practice. Also, from lesson 1 you are making projects.

If you can spare $25/month, I'd recommend Team Treehouse. Udacity is also another good site. I believe a lot of their courses are free, and some are authored by AT&T, Google, and AirBNB
