I'm surprised every time someone signs up for Foundational HTML. Usually it's after having gone through numerous courses and articles searching for a better learning material. I've lost track of the number of times people told me of their experiences spending months combing through sub-reddits, Hacker News, Product Hunt and other resources in such a quest. It's not difficult to understand why; you want to learn from the best resource there is.

But finding this mythical "best" resource is time consuming. And the recent explosion in learning resources has made it even more challenging. On one hand, a large number of people now has access to resources, often free, that teach them to code. On the other hand, with so many options to choose from, people find it very hard to choose at all. And if they do, they often second-guess their choice, not committing to the learning material. With so many courses out there you it easy to imagine that there's a perfect course out there waiting for you, so you regret anything less than ideal choice.

My goal with Front End Lane is to take the burden of selecting existing, and produce new, high quality learning resources so you can land your first front-end developer job. I've created a linear path that starts with a practical HTML course in which you build a Gmail replica. The course assumes no previous knowledge of HTML, which makes it perfect for beginners, but even those who had experience with HTML have found the hands-on approach great for plugging holes. And because subsequent learning materials in the linear path build upon the Gmail replica it's best you start there.
