Hello! Thanks to everyone who keeps this community alive and share amazing resources here.
I can’t code and I want to learn, and this topic is to let you know what exactly I want to learn, and to ask what you believe would be the best way.
I work with WordPress websites: I use themes, page builders, plug-ins; I know design rules, UX/UI principles and methods, SEO, content strategies, etc - but I can’t read a website code. Or at least: I can find something, sometimes I can understand a single line, but I can’t understand the structure and the logic behind - and this is what I want to learn.
First of all I want to be able to look at a long page of code and understand what language is it written in, what’s the relation between html, css and js, where one ends and another one begins, how they communicate.
Then I could be interested in learning more about more languages, the reasons behind the choice of a language to create something: is there a rule/need or a single element/function can be created using a language or another?
Is there a “general linguistics” in code? How can I study it?
I don’t need to perfectly master entire languages, because I do not aim at creating things from scratch. But I really need a guide to read behind a page, to understand the consequences of my code-free actions in a website. I want to be an aware designer, in order to make better choices.
I don’t know how relatable can this sound, if it’s a common need, and sorry if the web is plenty of specific resources and I wasn’t able to find them. I would be really grateful if someone could share resources, experiences, tips or any kind of idea to help me finding a direction.
What would you believe would be the best way to make the code behind no-code development understandable?
