Graphic Designer trying to learn web design
hey guys just wanted to know if you had any advice...
i'm a graphic designer who's trying to learn web design...i took some courses on WordPress but was too confused and now I've decided to give tree house a try.It's hard being a designer who's coming from the creative aspect & then to go into all this technical coding...i'm getting it...a little...but combining the two is where i find it difficult?
Any advice?Where should i start?

Start on the 'become a web designer' course instead of front-end developer. if you can finish that and you still want to learn more, move to front-end development.

I understand you feeling :). I started with "become a web designer", it helped me quite a bit, but not enough to be able to "create" anything quickly. But that's because I wanted to make a whole site (dynamic, maintainable & cie directly). Well, I needed it to get a job. But in the end, I can start again from good basics for "designing".
After that, you can take any course for more coding (PHP, Ruby, & cie).
I found it easier for a simple "transcription" from a graphic point of view to a website (at first, it's pages with text and images, and you add css to have a nice presentation, it's static however).
