I’m in the same position as dansjostedt, only difference is you probably are a bit more educated in all things code than I am at this very moment. Teamtreehouse has managed to convince me most thus far, haven’t signed up yet tho. Kinda like the way they present themselves and you can start from the ground up.

On topic: regarding going back to school, a diploma is just a piece of paper telling other people you read stuff, followed courses and completed some form of exams. I like to see my college degree as an entry ticket – a proven acquired skillset is far more superiour. Good thing, as a developer you can prove your skillset by building up a portfolio. Something you can do hand-in-hand with selling your items on Themeforest. More so, it’s a constant learning experience – so you can do something fun, earn something from it, learn new things and sharpen your skills whilst building a portfolio. That’s 1, 2, 3 and 4 birds with one stone!

Font-choice and spacing indeed. Give the visitor a “break” now and then.

Hey,

At this moment in time I’m in a place where I managed to attain a certain amount of “skills”. Suprisingly, school didn’t contribute as much as they were set out to.

In order to polish these skills and make me a more complete artisan, I’m looking into some tutorial/learning websites. I’ve had some good experiences in the past, in between jobs Jeffrey Way managed to educate me in HTML/CSS (thanks a bunch by the way!), and would like to expand my horizons. Something I’m particularly keen on learning, is building a theme in wordpress.

Nowadays there’s a lot of choice (Lynda, Teamtreehouse, Tuts+, ...), so I would like your experiences to make it easier for me. So, share away….!

Thanks!

“Self-knowledge is the beginning of wisdom” Just see your self-proclaimed suckyness as an opportunity to improve.
