W3Schools is a free, online school for budding website developers.
The site offers free – and I’m going to be repeating this word a lot because it is incredible how much content on this site is, well, free – tutorials in website design.
Anyone can take – here comes that word again – free tutorials in:
- HTML & CSS,
- Browser scripting,
- Server scripting,
- XML languages, and
- Web building.
There’s also reference and example pages for HTML & CSS; XML languages; browser scripting; and server scripting.
My personal favourite is the “Try it yourself editor” pictured above. With this tool, users can input code and see what the result of it is. It’s a great tool for learning because you can instantly see your successes or mistakes.
The only thing that is not free – that I was able to find – is a certification certificate, showing that you have completed a certain amount of tasks and now have a certain level of knowledge in a type of coding. But you do not need to buy the certificates, which run less than $100 each, in order to take the tutorials.
