Reading head first HTML and CSS now.

I think since this is more about a particular subject within coding that it's fine in it's own thread for now.

Yeah, I'm with vizwiz. I'll have to go to the big library by me and see if there's any coding books there, because I want to get better at it. =/

I can't say that I have read a book about it, but I did learn it from w3schools. Learned it in a few months, although I don't everything about it.

I read half of 2 books both about Java programming. But I wasn't able to finish them since I didn't have enough time. However, I was glad that I read what I could since I was able to understand more Java although I'm still a beginner and I really hate Java (I prefer Pascal).

Sort of. I took an HTML coding class in high school and there was a text book that I had to read to know what to do.

The only coding book I read from front to back (without being forced to read a book) is PHP for the world wide web. It was so outdated the guy in the book was using the wrong quotes for things One day I was just like screw it I wanna know php so I read the entire book. Though it didn't really help much, it was good for reference since the hardest part for me is memorizing the variables / function names. Making stuff is the easy part but I do often forget the basic set up of it all.

The best way to learn is by experimenting, books can only do so much you have to use your mind

I have not and I probably won't until I get into more complex coding.

That said, could anyone reccomend a good coding book?

I didnt even know there were books on coding I might go and get one soon, now that I know there are some But I much more prefer site guides and such. It's easier to be able to test, and sometimes comprehend.
I asked for it. This is what I wanted.

I have little or no experience with coding whatsoever... so I may want to get into that XD\

Besides!! I prefer to tinker around with hardware! (It's HIGH TECH LEGOS!!!*) (*to me anyway XD)

Yes, I picked up books on HTML, ActionScript, and Java from public library. But only retained beginner HTML knowledge. ActionScript -i barely looked at..

In our house, we have a full bookshelf on the stuff. Currently, I'm reading a book on Python and using my crappy computer to test. (non internet enabled)

I didn't even know they made those.

I know this kind of sounds like a stupid question....

Where do you buy them?

Now go! And let the legend come back to life!
