Quick links: Learn CSS and to code

07.04.2012 - 15:23 · 1 min read

So maybe you work with making (designing or something) websites, but don't understand much about the tech behind it. It happens. Or maybe you just want to learn how it all works. On web there are loads of different ways to learn the basics, some quite interesting too. And free.

CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is the way of styling websites. It's pretty much how the look of a site is built. To learn CSS, see CSS 101: interactive tutorial.

But CSS alone doesn't help much. In order to learn how it all really works check out Codeacademy. It's an interactive way to try and learn basics of coding (and scripting) in different languages, starting with the basics of JavaScript.

Suomeksi (In Finnish): 

Ehkä työskentelet nettisaittien tekemisen parissa, mutta et ymmärrä paljon saittien teknisestä puolesta. Sitä tapahtuu. Tai ehkäpä haluat vain oppia ymmärtämään miten se kaikki toimii. Verkko tarjoaa monia eri tapoja oppia perusteita. Jotkin niistä ovat erittäin mielenkiintoisia ja ilmaisiakin. Jos haluat oppia CSS:ää, tsekkaa CSS 101: interactive tutorial. Tyylitiedostoilla yksin ei tosin pitkälle pötkitä, joten koodaamisen (ja skriptaamisen) perusteita, JavaScriptista alkaen, voi opetella interaktiivisella Codeacademy -sivustolla.
