New to the Game
I am currently looking to get into Web Development and Design. I have actually just signed up for some online courses HTML Introduction from a local college.
Im curious, how long do you think the setback is between taking the courses at an actual class compared to doing them online? This online class I signed up for says it takes 3 months for this 1 course.

Honestly i never took an HTML class and have been coding it for about 10 years. Went to school for it infrastructure security and took many programming classes however have learned much more on my own then i ever did in school

in my area there is a college and uni, mohawk college and Mcmaster uni... one has the web design/development with a diploma the other has a certificate (as far as i understand)... so these may not be necessary?

it all depends. I started my career as a freelancer working job to job on a contract basis. Most of these jobs dont care about formal education. However, now working for a company(still contract but long term) they required a 4 year degree in business administration(not computer science)

Don't use W3Schools. I used to be a big supporter of this site but they are way out of take teaching old and deprecated commands/attributes
