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!

Hey stijncappaert,

Tuts+ and Lynda are the sites I like and use for learning.

For HTML/CSS tutorials, I liked and Followed Jeffery Way’s vids and tuts and they helped me alot. For PHP, I followed Kevin Skoglund’s vids from Lynda.com and they were awesome, so will suggest that you check them. For WP, I first studied Chris Coyer’s book Digging into Wordpress which is a great book to learn and to cover alot of ground. After that if I need more details, I consult articles at codex.wordpress.org or here at wp.tutsplus.com

Hope it helps :)
