Design to code

Learning web design, proper web design is tough. First you learn a little HTML, then you realise that most websites use CSS too. You learn some CSS, but then you realise that most websites use some kind of CMS, and as such you’ll need to learn PHP or something equally baffling. Then there’s Flash, Ajax, Javascript and all the other web design tools out there.

It feels impossible to take it all in, and I envy those who take to it naturally and can understand the logic and purpose of the code at a glance.¬†Still, it’s not all doom and gloom. I’m following one of my old lecturer’s advice and learning only what I need to know to do what I want to do.

So it’s with that in mind that I’ve began following this tutorial on building a WordPress theme. You’ll notice that my current theme isn’t one I’ve made myself, and I think it’s for the best that I have a website layout that reflects my work, not that of someone else. I’ll post more info in a few days, possibly some screenshots ¬†with my progress.
