Why am I even bothering to learn web design? Well if you are a print designer like me, you realize that a lot of your work has been moving towards the digital platform. In the last year I have designed about 4 websites, most of the e-commerce sites. I hire a back end developer and a web designer to help me with the tedious task of coding. The reason why I am learning web design, is I am a control freak when it comes to my agencies artwork. I like to have the ability to go into my designers code and tweak things, instead of talking him through the changes.

Anyway, I am about 18 hours into the book that claims to teach you HTML5 in 24 hours. I know a bit about html so a lot of the stuff I am learning is a refresher. They do go into CSS and CSS3 a lot, which is really helpful for me. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. The worst part of the book is that they go over tables for like 4 chapters, which I am told are becoming obsolete. (If that is not the case please add a comment below.) If you are beginning into the web design field this may be the book for you. It is really helpful and dumbed down for people that don’t have a clue about coding. I will give a final review of the book in a week or so.

I do recommend this,

    Using tables to control the layout of a web site is obsolete. Designers control the layout of a site using CSS.
