I just ran through the first lesson in my Web Fundamentals module, which I'll be starting over on stac.ly. I've had the idea to do something useful with web video for a while, so the fun begins next week.
Stac is a free learning resource I've created to help teach the fundamentals of web development, not necessarily so that everyone can build great websites, but so that those who need to make quick changes to their WordPress themes or update some static copy don't feel like they're going to break the Internet.
In the first class you'll build a web page (from scratch), with links and an image. In the first homework assignment - yes, there will be homework! - you'll build a second page, using code not mentioned in the lesson.
Although Stac is free, you'll need a subscription to do the homework and to access further lessons. The subscription just helps me know who's actually using the lessons, and will let you know when the next one is. There's no confirmation email link to click; you pop in your username, email address and password, and you're straight through.
Maybe in the future I'll build more of a community, but I'll stress again that it's free to subscribe, and there aren't any plans to charge. (I do plan to make money directly or otherwise through Stac, but not via a paywall).
So, sign up now and I'll send you the link to the first episode, and show you how you can subscribe.
