I have decided that I would like to look at the basics of web development, and I have a bit of an approach I would like to look at for this. I think that I will probably approach it in this order:
I think that makes a fair amount of sense. I’d like to create a new lesson every week:
I have been looking at the HTML basics, I’m not really sure where I would like to go with this for sure, but I am going to look at this starting in this order:
- HTML file format
- HTML <head> content
- HTML <body> content
- <head> tags
- <body> tags
I know that looks pretty brief, but I think several of these will end up being multiple lessons.
I also would like to be able to provide external resources for most of these things. In part because I refer to them on a regular basis myself.
I will do a similar thing with CSS:
- Inline CSS format
- Header CSS Format
- External CSS Format
- Including External CSS
- CSS selectors
- CSS declarations
- CSS properties
- CSS values
This is a much longer list, though I think it is more finely broken down.
PHP is my strongest programming language. I hear a lot of people complaining about it, so I keep trying to do things in different ways for a variety of things, but I think that it is a reasonable place to start learning a number of basic programming concepts:
- Writing output
- Getting input (forms)
- Processing input
- Displaying based on new input.
That’s really the very basic structures. I will probably need to look a variety of different things or not.
