HTML & CSS Design and Build Websites by Jon Duckett Review

– Hi guys, how’s it goin’? So in this video I’m going to address two common questions that I get. And the two questions that
I’m gonna focus on are beginner related questions, ’cause I get this asked a lot from people who are just starting out learning how to program
or design websites, and that is, what is the best place to
start learning how to code, or you know, how do you
get started with HTML or the different programming languages that there is out there? And I know it can be really confusing because there’s a lot to learn, you know? There’s HTML, there’s
CSS, there’s JavaScript, there’s WordPress, there’s PH. You know, the list just goes on forever. So my recommendation for most people is to start off with HTML. Get a good grasp of HTML
and then you can move on to something like CSS. And my main piece of advice is just to take it one day at a time, because a lot of stuff you learn in these, you know, like in
programming, stuff like that, it’s not stuff that just settles in and clicks in right away. You know, it takes some time to learn and you just take it day by day. And I’m actually going
to give a recommendation of a great resource to
get started with learning how to program websites
and design websites. And the first recommendation
I’m gonna give you is to go in the internet,
look up free tutorials, look up courses, even look for paid ones. I have paid ones myself. And just look at some very beginner ones. Like if you’re right
straight from a beginner, you know nothing, like I
said, focus on HTML, CSS and just go through the
courses, do some practical assessments, try to build
some websites yourself. Try to build out your portfolio and just take it day by day, because it really does just
take practice and time. And then eventually over
time you’ll kind of get those a-ha moments and things’ll
start to click in place. At least that’s what happened with me when I first started learning. You know, it took me a
while before I kind of things started to kinda click in my head. The recommendation I’m
gonna give you guys is I have a book here,
it’s called HTML and CSS Design and Build Websites. I believe the author is Jon Duckett and I got this on Amazon. And I got a link for it, you guys can take a
peek at it if you want. I think I grabbed it for
about $20 give or take. It’s a book about HTML and CSS and it’s a great reference
for anybody getting started. Now I’m gonna take a quick
peek here and show you guys what this book has to offer. As you can see, the pages
are really well done. The graphics are really well written, there’s a lot of text,
a lot of information and reference and it shows you all the different commands in HTML, CSS. How to build the layouts,
responsive web design. It even has a section on
CSS3 and HTML5 as well. And there’s a lot of design
theories and different things like working with images and stuff, It’s a great book and
it’s a great reference, and I highly recommend it for anybody who is just starting out with HTML or CSS. I think together you can
grab both the books for roughly about $50, but
they’re a great reference and I highly recommend them for everybody who’s just startin’ off. But again, just go online
and look up the tutorials and YouTube videos and stuff like that and eventually things will
just click into place. And again, check there book out, there’s a link for it in the description. Hope you guys like this video, hope it helped you out and you know what, just stick with it and
eventually you’ll get to understand it and before you know it you’ll be developing websites
and programming online.

  1. Hi, what year of release are your books? 2011 or 2014? Can you check that please for me? It is written somewhere in first few pages.

  2. I'd love to buy those books….But im poor and they dont have them in my country,so SoloLearn is a great alternative…

  3. Yes the books are google because it helped me with html and css. But i can't get the javascript because i can't afford it so if their is a free pdf it will be great, but for now i can afford id.

  4. hey! yo.. dude the tables the login forms are instructed in javascript books are pretty old fashioned… The Book Just Looks Good But The Contents of The Books are Like Way Behind Ages! Where are those cool parallax effects, where is canvas and many more! man make a book on Html5 and css3 covering all syllabus…….

  5. I am new in programming.
    I'm looking for a good book to start learning html+css and JAVASCRIPT.
    Are these books outdated for 2018? maybe some new suggestions?. ty

  6. It's been 2 years since I made this video and I would like to thank everyone for the positive feedback! I'd still recommend these books for anyone that is still interested in learning HTML and CSS.

  7. I am at chapter 11 as of writing this only downside I found was chapter 9. Flash is almost not supported any more and in 2020 its stops completely.
