Where to go next...

So, I've been practicing HTML and CSS for a few months now and have become familiar with most of the language. But still, I don't really understand how the pros start out on a site and in which order they do what, how they go about making things like sidebars step by step, etc. I really wanna step my game up to the next level, but I'm at an awkward position. I've found that the only videos I haven't seen are the ones that are for beginners and tell me things I already know. Do you think it'd be beneficial to start learning something like Bootstrap/Foundation to see common formatting and methods for doing those practical things that are just too specific to include in a treehouse tutorial? Where do I go from here??????

I'm in a similar situation.

Have you given any thought on Javascript and Jquery?

I think it's time to start doing small projects and see what works and what doesn't. Make millions of mistakes and six months later come back for the "what was I thinking moment" :)

I think that Bootstrap and Foundation are good ideas to look into. As they say "don't invent the wheel again".

Let me know what is your next step.

Happy coding and amazing 2015!

Have you tried PHP?

When I first started the html and css courses there were alot of things I already new aswell. I watched all of them anyways in order to make sure and fill in any small important gaps.

I went from HTML, CSS, then PHP, and then just the JAVASCRIPT that i currently need. These four will allow you to create just about anything.

HTML = Structure

CSS = Style

PHP = Dynamic

Javascript = Interactive
