WordPress Developer for Beginners → Learn HTML and CSS first

Here we go, I joined wpmudev because 1) it looks like an awesome place for resources and community, and 2) they offer “Your Bachelor of WordPress”, a series of classes to become a WordPress Developer.

I took one or two lessons and, when I had just started the lesson on PHP, I suspected that I first need to have a thorough understanding of HTML and CSS because of a warning message on the site:

“Note: For this course, it’s important that you already have a thorough understanding of HTML and CSS as both of these languages are essential building blocks when working with WordPress.”

So I paused right there and then, and jumped to Khan Academy for their Intro to HTML/CSS: Making Webpages. Although to achieve thorough status, I’m eyeing codeacademy’s Build Websites from Scratch, a 10-week intensive program that costs $199 and requires “at least 10 hours a week” of dedication to stay on course.


Am I going off target? I’m not sure. I created a simple log to keep me honest: here it is.
