Beginner looking for the right course in webdev

i'm a beginner in coding and not sure if/which course to take. i would like to go for an on-site as its definitely will force me to focus my attention but there is still such a diversity in the available courses. i live in London. Please, help!

I've enjoyed learning to publish w jamstack/ghpages/Jekyll

It's not a direct route, but a ton of foundational principles, and can spin up a live working site in minutes, learn complexity as you itch for some feature...

web-work.tools/github-pages-starte...

And I collect tons of related resources (organized by topic) in this chat server, as a staging area till I can build out pages/lists for each topic re web-work... it's a collab curation thing

Wish you the best, hope my response isn't too out there for you but I'm so stoked on jamstack, in and of itself, and as a gateway to all kinda dev skills!! :)

since it sounds like you're new to jamstack, I'll share with you two links that I found illuminating, as I was using the technology without realizing a buzzword and culture was growing around the workflow of building simple sites with fewer moving parts, and adding any dynamic functionality with microservices.

Thank you, i have been through html and css and i know them good enough. Sketched up a website already. At js at the moment and must say thats where things got heavier. Thank you for the advice though!

Thank you! I actually have that and couple of others. Find them really helpful after realising codecademy doesnt really prepare you for the real work, more like a playground to learn the very basic.
