Learn Web Design Easily with my 5-Star Rated Interactive Course:  learn more

Get started now – no experience required!

How-to-build-websites.com is designed for total beginners … and for people who use apps like Dreamweaver and other wysiwyg apps (wysiwyg stands for: “What You See Is What You Get”) … and now want to learn what’s going on ‘behind the scenes’.

To really understand web design, you need to learn HTML hand-coding; it’s easier than you think!

Why learning HTML and CSS makes sense.

Web design apps like Dreamweaver are fine, but if you want to be able to build modern responsive HTML5 based websites, then these apps will get in the way of you learning (because you have to learn the app on top of the code) … and will actually slow you down!

Learning to build your web sites using HTML will give you far better control over the process, and ultimately your web sites. On top of that, you will have a far deeper understanding of the web, and as a result you will create better websites quicker – much quicker.

Three ways to learn web design:

  1. Buy my 5 star rated book on amazon.
  2. Get my interactive video course on web design … and it covers much more!
  3. Do this websites’ tutorial: Start Learning Basic HTML Concepts »

  • Teaching students code with HTML5

    I was recently emailed from a dad wanting to get his 10 and 13 year old kids interested in coding. There are so many choices out there in terms of languages and for a non-nerd, it is hard to choose.

    Having been teaching code since 2003, I suggest strongly that the languages of web design are the best choices. Here is my response to the father:

    I am a big advocate of HTML5 since it is visual, easy to learn and is the basis of all websites, web apps and is a popular choice for creating mobile apps for iOS and Android. Students get excited when they see they are building actual websites.

    I think if your kids have done Scratch, then I would suggest you move them into real coding beginning with HTML5, followed by CSS3 and then add the code that allows for decision making capability with JavaScript.

    At the risk of being a shameless self promoter, StudioWeb provides that pathway with fun interactive training. We have family licenses that gives you the full classroom experience, where you have your own classroom, complete with teacher’s monitoring, auto grading and projects that you can assign your kids. Very easy to use but a powerful training environment that will teach your kids real-world coding skills that they can use to express any ideas they may have.
