After writing 25 HTML5 & CSS3 Tutorials for every web designer. I had inquires from people wanting to become developers and designers with little to zero experience. They wanted to know where was the best place to start learning.
I find that the best way to learn anything is to dive in heads first and get down and dirty. In the work ethic way ;). I built my first website with notepad++ and Google. It was before HTML5, but I literally googled every tiny little detail. The website was horrendous, but it was a working version of it, and I was proud of it.
