    Hey guys, my first post here. Just finish the book and it has definitely changed my life. I have great tech ideas but no programming skills. I don't want to outsource, this knowledge is important to me. So whats the best way to learn how to code to create websites? Thanks in advance.

    I would personally start with codeacademy.com to get a basic understanding.

    Google coding for beginners , watch youtube videos, look for local classes/college's specializing in beginners.
    Once you get your feet in the door its up to you which direction you want to take but i believe its better to know what your talking about even if it is just grasping the basics.

    the hard thing is knowing what tolearn. you will definitely need html/css/javascript. After that, php, ruby, python are all decent choices for web backends. you can do backends these days with something called nodejs that lets you code it in javascript, so really the first 3 are all you have to know. learn design as well.

    My favourite resource is definitely YouTube. Things like Codecademy are good too - they're much more interactive than books, and you can get them for free.
    Try 'Derek Banas' - you'll either love him or you'll hate him, but he has videos on most languages. His videos can be a little overwhelming if you're first starting out, though.
    Good luck!

    Ha tell me about it, that's why I don't want to outsource. The way technology is advancing, in the future not knowing at least the basics of coding could be a big disadvantage.

    Try TheNewBoston.org he has videos teaching most languages, as well as a few other topics that you may interest you (outside of coding).

    if you want to go beyond basic websites and you come up with a business idea that would require to write real rich internet applications you should take a look at angularjs, it's simple, fun, awesome (if you gained some basic understanding). for your backend code you should take a look at "nobackend" solutions like firebase (you basically outsource your backend in the cloud). if you want to port your javascript applications to mobile devices, take a look at phonegap. for css stuff you should take a look at bootstrap !!! ok, no more hints :)

    Learn the basics, think of a project that will solve a need even if one already exists. Then start designing and programming as if it's a real project.

    You can learn all you want but experience is the king. With your first project you'll find out what you'll need to learn which will be basic information that's aren't thought in school.
