Learn the basics
LTFB – Learn the f* basics. Any further tip is useless if you do not know the basics of web development. If you find yourself struggling with programming and design, I’ve got some nice getting started guides for you on this blog. Try to pick a few topics and make yourself comfortable with basic requirements in web development.
To learn the basics of programming, I’d recommend taking an online course. There are tons of great programs to choose from out there: Hop over to treehouse or code academy and check out their classes.
Learn how to design
Getting started in web development also requires some basic understanding of good design. Besides making yourself familiar with some design tools, I’d recommend learning the basic concepts of design. Learn how to think like a designer.
Teamtreehouse, for example, offers some great classes and materials on design. Lynda.com is another great resource.
