Learning Front End Web Development with Thinkful

Thinkful is an online learning community that combines online resources with personalized feedback and mentoring. They have a Front End Development course, and just added a Python course. I recently signed up for the Front End Development course, hoping to shore up my JavaScript and figure out some of the cool new features of HTML5/CSS3.

After looking over the syllabus, I was initially concerned, because they start with very basic HTML/CSS. Been there, done that. I’m confident in that skill set. But after voicing my concerns, both my mentor and the class coordinator assured me that I could skip anything I felt comfortable with and go straight to the JavaScript.

So this week, I’ll be doing a quick overview of HTML5/CSS3 features (beyond the new semantic tags), and then I’ll jump into the JavaScript/jQuery segment.

Here are some resources I’ve collected:

Road Map To Coding With HTML5: Tutorials and Guidelines

Top HTML 5 Tutorials from HTMLGoodies

Take Your Design To The Next Level With CSS3

If you have any other useful resources, I’d love to see them!
