    I'm interested in this as well. I learn java as a student in computer engineering but other languages for webdesign are
    not a basic course it seems. So anyone has an idea on how to study them like a downloadable book, a course online, etc?

    I would recommend any starter course like the one posted above.

    My best advice is learning by doing, so start with getting a bit of knowledge (course, reading, etc), then download a template or a theme, play around with it with your recently acquired knowledge, change stuff and test the differences you made.

    The different courses and references are good to go over, but the best way for me to learn was by building sites and programming myself.

    I have used Codecademy for a while and I think they are great. Great information/courses, motivational badges to earn as well as day/point streak system. Try them!

    Developing websites and developing software are two different things and will take years to master them both. For software I suggest you start studying C language and then move to C++, Java and Python. For websites you should start with HTML/CSS and them PHP/Mysql. These are only the basics.

    If you're not willing to do some hard work and spend hours and hours studying them I strongly suggest you forget about this.
    The best way to study them is books (download section will be helpful, heck even torrent sites have plenty of them). As it was already mentioned, this http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...me-web-developer-scratch-complete-course.html is one of the best solutions for web development.

    PHP Scripting ;)
    Let me point out the steps that I walked though :

    Got interested in Web developing -> Read about the languages -> Bought a PHP book -> went through the book almost fully and tried out the examples -> Put a small idea in mind -> Start coding and search for functions/solutions/tips etc when you get stuck.
    And once you know to code basic things, your logic,and coding ability increases with practice.

    Now, I am going to do the same thing for Vb. :)

    The course links shared are good, you can start by theoretical knowledge and learning the basics from here, however practical approach would be the best, as you learn you should experiment on free templates, that way would get a better understanding of the concepts and basics.

    Don't ask people questions just GO!

    CSS just came out when I learned HTML. There were very little sources of material let alone full blown tutorials back then. I had to Ctrl+U and figure it out.

    Best advice I can give is not to ask questions until you get stuck, your summer is upon you already, so take action.

    Check out w3schools.com, they have good tutorials and explanations of the basics. I taught myself CSS in the last month with w3 and a couple of books. I have the an ebook version of "CSS: The Missing Manual," if you PM me your email address or whatever I'll send it to you, it's like over 500 pages, and had the best reviews in CSS books.
