I've decided to get back into web design, and things have changed so much in twenty years. I built my first web page in '95, and I used to know enough, but I've gone 18 years without touching a keyboard with intent.

I'm trying to find the best resources to get me back in the game, and I'm asking for your help.

I'm looking to retrain in HTML (or HTML5 now), and dig into CSS, PHP, and a little MySQL.

I appreciate your time, and I thank you for any help and resources that you would be willing to provide.

Best :yawn: ?

A little MySQL :? ??

Dig into CSS and PHP :o ?

I'm glad you didn't ask which is best out of Netscape and IE :D

Sorry just joshing with you, there are several tutorials out there and each have their good and bad points, remaining up to date is the biggest problem with them and their coverage of security. W 3 Schools is as good as any to start with, but I hasten to add - start with. It also covers CSS, PHP and MySQL along with some other bits and pieces.

Don't forget to spend some time with the official documentation for whatever technology you are using. www.php.net is a good place to find great information on what PHP can do.

While there are great tutorials on the Internet, many of them like to steer you towards a framework that the author of the tutorial prefers. Starting with the basic concepts and working your way through is valuable even if you choose to use a framework later.

If you are a paid LinkedIn member you also have access to video training for many of the technologies you are interested in.

And even though they can get dated pretty fast, a trip to your bookstore (or Amazon) can get you going as well.
