    Lightbulb Looking for someone wanting to help teach me

    Hi, I am new here so please don't comment hate. I am looking for someone to teach me HTML and a (little) CSS. I know a tiny but about HTML. I want to start leaning code now for the future. I am a freshman in highschool, i am 14 and I have skype, I want to start now so when i'm in my 4th year of high school. I am wanting to have my future to be a web designer and I have messed around with HTML using Editey on my school chromebook. Thanks in advance! :tickle:

    Well I can't speak for everyone here, but I do not know how many people would be able to teach you in the way I suspect you want. None of us really have time to walk you step by step through everything, and honestly its not something you want. One skill all developers should have is the ability to learn on their own. This is because down the road technology will change. For you to stay up to date and relevant you will constantly need to be teaching yourself new things.

    Now don't let that discourage you, because while it may sound like I am saying you are on your own, you aren't. Everyone here is in some way willing to help you learn. We do this by answering questions that come up along the way. Another great resource is Stack Overflow.

    My advice to you is to check out Codecademy.com and start their course on HTML and CSS. If you have any questions post and we will try and answer. Stay here and be active and you will learn a ton!

    You may have wanted to find a mentor, but a forum is in my opinion a great alternative. You essentially have gained multiple micro-mentors.

    What Vapr_Arts said. There is no single source of learning, and the best thing you can pick up right here and right now is that piece of information. This not only applies to web design, but it applies on a broader scale to life as a whole. You can learn from all sorts of places, and you should.

    It's good that you're taking the interest in learning things this early, and it will serve you in good stead. Looking for a mentor is also understandable. Good on you for both things; I wish I thought that way at 14 instead of at 16-17. But the thing is that no single mentor can teach you everything there is to know about HTML/CSS for the simple reason that we don't know everything there is to know about HTML/CSS as a collective. We're constantly learning and inventing new stuff as we go along. That's half the fun.

    Wow that's creepy... Me and my friend very recently started a huge project site to do just that. From downloading the necessary software and setting up you're work station all the way to publishing and hosting you're new website. Its going to be a tutorial website/blog of sorts be with a unique twist that I won't be revealing just yet. Oh and speaking of which. TheGAME would it be ok to list WDF as a helpful website for additional help in this new website we are building? I thought it would be but I just wanted to run in by you first.

    I think you can learn it from google easily. You need to check few tutorials and especially w3schools that is especially made for the newbies.

    I don't own it, brother.

    PM veraderock and ask him. He works for the owners. I don't anticipate any issue, though.

    Thanks, Matthew. It only took me 9 years to get there.
