Like many, I'm trying to learn how to develop web sites. All of my ideas are dynamic / data driven web sites. Heck, let's just say something like a blog to start.
I did a search and found lots of good information, but I'm still a bit confused. It could be that there are just so many options and ways of getting to the same thing (Photoshop syndrome), but I thought I would ask here and see if anyone would be willing to offer some guidance.
I've got a decent handle on HTML and CSS (even if I have the design sense of a slug), and I work with SQL daily in my job; the web stuff is something I'm looking to integrate into my professional life.
I like the client side idea, myself. If I were to take the approach of putting most of the functionality on the client side with some way to persist data on the server, what would be your recommended approach in terms of a basic learning path?
I looked at SproutCore and liked what they had available, but -- maybe it's just me -- their documentation seems horrible.
Books, links, or even just ideas I could look into would be very much appreciated. And I'll do my best to keep coming back and give back as I learn myself.
