HTML, CSS and our vanishing industry entry points

Bookmarked HTML, CSS and our vanishing industry entry points by Rachel Andrew

“Some thoughts on entry points to web development today, and my fears about the loss of something that has enabled so many people without a traditional computer science background to be here.”


I couldn’t agree more. I started creating web pages at 15, with nothing more than Notepad, a magazine tutorial, and a Tripod account. I’d never planned to work in “tech” or as a developer, but that’s where it led me. My degree wasn’t a full “CompSci” degree, but a mix of computing, media, and a little bit of business. I can’t imagine having made it here if I’d had to go through the modern JavaScript hoopla (even though I work with those tools frequently)
