W3schools

Hi,

I was wondering that is there any reason there is no mentioning of w3schools.com in here? Because I always refer to that for my problems. Are these sites any better?

Also is there any project that we'll do along this course? Because I noticed there is no "Workspace" button next to the video!

Its because w3school is not a good resource. I would suggest not to use that as a resource. Its rather flawed, especially with JS.

What type of resource for CSS are you looking for?

I wasn't aware of the shortcomings of W3schools! I was just looking for a reliable resource, I think I need to explore the MDN.

If you need a CSS reference check this out, it's very good:

CSS Reference

this should always be the first place to look.

For a very long time now, one of the sites that I've found helpful is http://www.webmonkey.com/. They have a lot of information on web design. I really like reading the articles that get posted.
