Hello Dylan! Great article, absolute beginner here. I was following somewhat a similar pattern but you have given me an extensive pathway. I was relying on freecodecamp for the fundamentals part, just finished the HTML and was about to start the CSS part before seeing your article. I was planning to stick with it up to the Js algorithms and data structure which you referenced in the article as well.

My question is, does the w3schools stack up better in comparison with freecodecamp for the fundamentals part? not necessarily comparing the two websites but just the content on the given topic of the HTML & CSS, I want to avoid having to switch between website before i'm done with a given target. Your insight would truly help.

w3schools I recommend because it short easy digestible and not overly complicated. it won't make you an HTML or css pro but its a start. Always remember Practice makes Perfect!

Thank you Dylan, your article has been very helpful! I'll keep that last line on my mind, daily practice is the key!

not sure if this helps but w3schools is more like a quick overview with some examples to try. It is not a comprehensive discussion nor examples that can fully explore the ability of a concept. They are great to start with but you will need a few exercises with markup and css to truly begin.

Thank you, I appreciate your input, it defiantly helps. I have personally found MDN to give a more comprehensive overview of the markup and CSS and been using it ever since. Truth to what you said, I just need more practical exercises to have a solid grasp of the concepts. I'm looking forward to the certification projects to get practical with it.
