If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to build websites and web apps, HTML and CSS are the first skills you should learn. They are so fundamental that we believe everyone has the right to learn these skills for free.
We set ourselves the challenge of designing the most effective and enjoyable way to learn HTML and CSS in one month. The result is 30 Days to Learn HTML and CSS, a free Tuts+ Premium course. We’re really excited to share this with you today! (Plus, get a sneak peek at the new Tuts+ Premium.) (more…)
This coming weekend, two WordCamps will be going on simultaneously — yep, it’s WordCamp season again! This weekend will be the first of many this autumn with multiple WordCamps. Tomorrow (not quite the weekend but close enough) is WordCamp Cape Town, and then this weekend, first-time WordCamp Albuquerque coincides with 4-time returning champ WordCamp Portland, a cool juxtaposition of a more established local community with one that is just getting started. If you’re anywhere near the Portland area, you should try to attend. The WordPress Foundation will be sponsoring some special activities around Software Freedom Day, and some members of the core team (me, Nacin, Koop) will be there.
