    Good evening,

    I'm wanting to take my first steps in programming and of all the platforms that are out there I think it would be best to begin with web development as it has so many applications in my current line of work (as an IT Manager in a school).

    Could anyone recommend a good book for starting out in HTML5, CSS and either ASP.net or PHP?

    codecademy is a great starting point and its free www.codecademy.com, the interface can sometimes be a little annoying and I found it works better in Chrome for some reason. Also signup for an account at www.udemy.com browse some courses but then dont go back, you will soon start getting offer emails for discounted courses some even as cheap as $19 for a course thats in the hundreds (well at least I do, weekly for that matter). :)

    I second what SimonV said, codecademy is a good resource for beginners. The UI is great.. only downfall are the bugs but they maybe less frequent now as Ive not used it in a year or so
