The Best Way to Learn Web Design

March 28, 2014


I try to start with the point of the article whenever I can … so what is the best way to learn web design and web programming?

In a nutshell:

  • You want to as quickly as possible, get past the basic concepts and basic code principles. Too many courses these days concentrate too much on too many details.
  • Once you have that minimal knowledge, you should be building actual projects!

I’ve been teaching web design and programming for over a decade now and have been teaching for about 20yrs – give or take. And I can tell you that without a doubt, the best way to learn web design and programming is to build.

… With each site that you design, your skills will jump. With each dynamic database driven website that you build, your skills will jump.

Finishing the Job is Key

It is important that you complete projects. For some reason, leaving something half done, just doesn’t seem to have the same learning impact. That’s why smaller mini projects are great for learning because big projects take a long time to finish.

With that in mind, our Complete Web Designer training package follows these principles … which only makes sense since we created all the courses!

PS: If you want a DVD/USB hard copy sent you, we do that too.
