I researched a lot of books about Webdesign and these three are my favorite ones that I found so far. There are so many topics and things you can learn, but I was searching for a fundamental HTML basic course, to begin with.
Learning Webdesign by Robbins is a great course for a beginner and it provides the understanding and patience to the reader. With different exercises, you learn to create websites based on an HTML language, which is pretty cool and helped me to develop a better understanding of interactive sites. Now I am able to work on problem solving issues on websites. I learned how to create CSS and how to manage complicated CSS and HTML codes.
Learning Webdesign was the only book at this time I could find, that helped me to learn HTML and CSS on my own without confusing me or splashing complicated codes into my face. Robbins explains with patience and the reader learns to understand the meaning and fundamentals of the HTML and CSS code. She provides exercises and explains also possible mistakes that can happen (due to the use of a browser, typo, and many more).
I had the feeling that many courses and books just blindly rush through the coding and the HTML structures but "Learning Webdesign" takes its time and I need to understand what the code means instead of just applying it.
This course was definitely worth it! I learned so much and experienced the possibility that I can learn complicated codes and I can understand HTML.
