    Thanks for the replies.

    Fergal, I think I may do an evening course to compliment some literature and tutorial videos. GekiDan thanks for the links.

    I previously did an evening Diploma course in Law at Dublin Business School, I was very impressed with the quality of the course and the helpfulness of the lecturers. You might be interested in some of their part time courses listed on the bottom of this page.

    That was right, taking an evening course will really help you to learn coding. There are lots of schools out there to offer part time / evening course. I guess there are internet tutors and lecturers that offers help in coding. Also you can learn from books and tutorial videos.

    If you have money to spend, Lynda.com is an excellent source to learn from...

    They have video tutorials on pretty much anything you can think of! The downfall though, is that it's kind of pricy.

    For those that have used Lynda.com what type of tutorials did you do with them? I'm interested in improving my PHP knowledge (I only have the very basics) and wonder if Lynda.com would be a good option.

    Micheal skugland of lynda provided a very good foundation to learn PHP by creating a simple CMS and the front end of the site.
    however, it might not enough. having this cbtnuggets.com/it-training-videos/series/zend_php would be a great too.

    Thanks for that ownedbox, I see that they provide 60 minutes free, which is great. I will check them out in the near future.

    Never ever use tutorials. I used loads of them and I didn't learn anything. Find a really simple website with a bad design, view the source and copy it into your localhost. From there, you can find your way around the CSS by changing background colours, amounts of padding etc. Once you are confident you've learnt quite a bit of CSS, go onto the HTML. Reorder the elements so what you can do with it. Once you've done that, move onto a more advanced website that uses more advanced coding.

    Of course the easiest way (and how I learnt coding) is to find a tutor who is willing to contribute his/her time and effort to help you learn coding. I had two tutors, both of which were very kind and even after I offered to pay them, they both turned it down.

    I know have two of my own apprentices and I hope they have the same impression on me as I did on my tutors.

    I think the best way is to try it out yourself. I watched this video, actually McStormify told me this :p But here is the link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwQMnpUsj8I&playnext=1&list=PLC5786BC366DE04BA) after looking at that, I went to those sites where you can download free templates and tried to mess them up a little. After that, I tried to recreate them the best I could. After that, I went to the more complex ones and that is where I am right now.
