In today’s world, educating yourself regarding any topic is as easy as performing a Google search. In the mad dash for everyone to create quality content for their websites, a great deal of quality information is provided for anyone who is willing to learn. You can earn a lot of money by creating or improving websites. For those who are interested in developing websites in HTML, the locations are plentiful and the knowledge is great. With continued practice on free web-hosting platforms, you could easily develop your skills and get hired as a full time or freelance worker.

1. HTMLgoodies.com – The HTMLgoodies.com website is a vast collection of knowledge providing well written tutorials and knowledge behind the coding. This website has been on the Internet for quite some time and has helped a wide array of people develop full and rich websites. Don’t let the name fool you, however. There is more to the site than just simple HTML. The site includes learning materials for PHP, ASP, Javascript, and more. It is a great place to learn coding from beginners to advanced programmers.

2. W3Schools.com – Much like the site above, W3Schools.com supports a wide range of knowledge for those interested in learning HTML programming for websites. As opposed to other locales for learning HTML, W3Schools.com offers a great deal more in terms of quizzes. You are also able to earn a certification through the website from the comfort of your own home for under $100. This could be added as padding to your resume for an improved self-promotional value.

3. ComputerHope.com – Although ComputerHope.com isn’t as elaborately constructed as the above two examples, there is a great deal of knowledge beginning developers can find. On the first page, visitors are able to learn all of the acronyms that are used to develop HTML and what their meanings are. This site provides help from tables to special characters to add within the content to create objects such as “®” and “£.”

4. quackit.com – For those who learn by tearing into code and pulling it apart, quackit.com can offer tutorials and code snippets for you to copy and paste directly into your projects. The site does offer explanations to the process of coding HTML, but may lack some of the simplistic language that other sites offer in order to help the beginner programmer. The knowledge within the site, however, is extremely vast as you can see the examples of what each coding format looks like once pasted into a webpage.

5. Microsoft MSDN – Many people don’t realize that they have the HTML Help development center already installed on their computers that may have been added through various program installs. For those who don’t have it, the download above is a workshop where you can test your code in a variety of ways without the need to use web-hosting. The help database that is connected with this installation provides great knowledge and you are able to implement any HTML coding you want to develop.

Although you may not be able to afford to attend a college or training school specializing in webdesign, that shouldn’t hold you back. While you may not hold a degree in your hands, providing a prospective employer with samples of your design work could be just as strengthening to your qualifications as formal education. In fact, many employers prefer to hire those who have practical experience. If you can show that experience by designing various websites on your own, you could pique the interest of that employer.
