Getting started in web development ( almost )
Before i tell you about my problem, i wish to mention a few things about myself so that you can optimize your feedback on my background.
I like to program and i have a very good understanding on languages C/C++/C#/VB/Java. I also study Informatics and Telematics , so i know a lot about how computers and the internet works.
From time to time, i have read some tutorials on various languages related to web development like HTML/XHML/CSS/Javasript ( also some asp.net and ajax ). However, i never dealt a great amount of effort on learning them.
Recently i decided to get deeper into these and become a web developer. But i should be honest ... it's about the money. I'm low on funds and i really need to get a job. Unemployment in my country has skyrocketed but there is always demand for web developers. So, it is a great opportunity for me.
Now the real problem :
I have tried reading many tutorials but i always have the same problem. They are damn boring! All beginner tutorials treat the reader as a person with no background and get bored to death! I know what the web browser does, i know what a client is, i know what a server is, i know a lot of stuff that i do not need to read over and over again.
I ask for some good tutorials that assume the reader knows the basics. I would also be GRATEFUL to be given some tips from you guys about do's and don'ts, tools you use, and maybe help reorder items in the following list.
