Hi there. I have looked through the tracks and although most contain the beginner HTML and CSS bits, they do go into greater depth about the specific topic.

Four hours a day is a good amount of time. As you progress you may find that it increases due to enjoyment. I spend about 8+. It a long path and you never stop learning, and you never should stop. Staying still for to long in web development is not a good idea. After a few months you should have a good grasp of the basics and enough knowledge to build a site. A couple of years should see you efficient in HTML CSS php SQL and JavaScript, but not a master.

Hope this helps :)

Perfect! Just the perfect answer i was looking for! :) Thank you
