    Hey guys, just wondering what you think of Lynda.com and their tutorials. I'm not looking to become an actual coder or designer of websites, but rather have enough basic knowledge to understand the components of website development (for mid to large size companies).

    The SEO, Web Redesign, and CSS crash course seem to be decent and time efficient. Any other books, programming languages, and sites i may want to look into?

    Thanks :wavey:

    For web site development PHP and HTML works well.
    (And it's fairly easy to learn.)
    Tons of websites/books on it too.

    And Dreamweaver is a good environment to do both.

    :dunno:

    I've used dreamweaver mx 2004. I can put stuff together and upload it, then make changes to the code. I can't make anything from scratch with code alone, but i guess thats good enough for my purposes :o

    I'll check out PHP, i do have an interest in it :)

    lynda.com's website is pretty lame. lots of information, but usability is crap. besides using quicktime plugin for all their videos, each video opens in a pop-up window.

    I'm self-taught, so I can't voice an opinion on their quality of content.

    My company bought a year subscription. There is a TON of good information on there, and they constantly add more. Only problem is finding the time to watch them...
