Introduction to web development from Shaw Academy is a fantastic starting point for anybody that wants to enter into the web design/development arena. With interactive classes twice a week with the great option to answer questions interactively or email the tutor gives is s big plus! The interactive lessons are then put into the members area so you can watch over and over again - html/css/Java and backend/server you are not going to pick it up by just watching the video once!This course gives a great basic understanding into web development and looking forward to the last couple of lessons then the advanced course.
