    Where is better to continue?

    First of all I want to say hi to everybody as I am new to this community. I just started to learn HTML/CSS, and I start to learn on Codecademy, I made myself a PRO account and started to learn it ( i want to learn php, jquery, ruby and all stuffs but later ).

    This will not get me so far, just like a Advanced Begginer I think and I wonder what site to choose after between Codeschool and TeamTreeHouse. Can you give me some advice? Thanks.

    I personally have used Treehouse and liked it a lot, but you dont have to take my word for it. They have a free trial that you can take advantage of. Never tried Codeschool so I can't compare the 2, but I'd see if they have a trial as well. If so test them both out and see what you like better.

    None of the above. There is no singular source for learning things related to the web, nor should there be. If anything, Google's a better teacher than either of those sites and it's a loosely organized collection of stuff that requires you to put the right things into a box to find it.

    You may find yourself referring to several sites primarily (e.g. WDF, Stack Overflow, possibly Experts-Exchange), but you shouldn't have one primary go-to source.

    Right, you will never start learning and will constantly be looking up new things. In the long run WDF/ Stack Overflow will be a bigger help, but to get your foot in the door and get your feet wet there are benefits to using something like Codecademy and Treehouse, at least it was for me. Its like a crash course for the rest of your learning. Teaches you where to start so you know what to ask on the other sites.

    I'm not necessarily sure about that. Maybe it's because those sites weren't around when I started in the dark ages of the 20th century, but I don't think anyone needs them.

    Again, if they work for you, use them by all means. I just want to make sure that the learning isn't confined to a single source.

    For me it was more about getting my feet wet. I didn't really have anyone showing me how to do this or that and I was asking all the wrong things in google. Codeacedmy gave me a crash course in html/css and javascript that helped me learn the basic structure and terms which made googling questions more effective.

    Yeah I vouch for code academy on that front, at the time, I needed structured learning and it helped experience a lot of "aha!" moments by the way they explained things and also had you hands on. But that being said, I've moved on and I learn from everywhere, namely Google, stack overflow (always there for me lol) css-tricks, and even following certain websites and people on twitter who tweet articles, tutorials and blogs on different aspects of the industry.
    Devdocs.io is another awesome resource and Mozilla Developer Network from time to time.

    CSS-Tricks is another good one. I forgot about them. Good call, breno.

    I started to learn the basics from Lynda.com tutorials. Now i just use google to find very specific information. It's important to note that this specific information would be useless to me without learning the basics first.

    After starting with the Lynda.com tuts, I went back to college to refine my knowledge. I'm not saying tradition education is the best path for everyone, I am saying it was for me. I wanted to be able to ask a pro questions, but personally, body language can be such a massive source of information.

    A buddy of mine who didn't opt for the traditional academic path, swears by treehouse.
