hi,

I am a web designer, working in a company. I want to develop my skills in html, css and javascript. Unfortunately my office setup is not giving me opportunity to work with new stuffs with the above said skills.

I feel i need to learn updated codes. What should i do? When i discuss with my ex-colleagues from others company, they know lot of stuffs and code methods in web designing.

Please help what should i do?

Well, it's an awfully broad question, and you didn't allow much time, did you.

When you come across a web page that does something interesting, do you immediately open the page source and study the html, css and javascript? I do ;)

It used to be common just to task someone elses code from a page that did something interesting and test it for yourself to understand how it works.

If I were starting out now I'd learn the basics of all 3, perhaps buy a book for each as a foundation for your knowledge. After a basic understanding, look at some of the javascript libraries which naturally work a lot with HTML and CSS.

I did that once on Yahoo! -- actually many times. But in a particular instance within the head source code they were advertising for job openings in comment tags... "You're looking, we're hiring". That was one of the most creative approaches I've ever seen for prospecting.

I'd also learn about the basics of the HTTP protocol, since many JS implementations use AJAX and therefore require an understanding of how the client side communicates to the server side.

I always say the best way to learn is to set yourself a goal and do it!

Think about what you want to learn, think up an interesting project and set about creating it.

There is a gold mine of information to read up on within this site. Everything from HTML to advanced scripting. By trying to create a project that takes you out of your comfort zone, it forces you to learn and develop new skills as you go.
