This is a guest post that I wrote for CSS-Tricks a while back. This is the story of why I fell in love with web development and why think it’s a great career, especially for people with disabilities.

I plan to do a little of an introduction to CSS to follow up my post about making your first website. But until then this is a nice walkthrough of adding some visual styles to a webpage made with default HTML styling.

This is a little bit of an advanced read if you are just starting out. But I wanted to link to it to demonstrate that it’s possible to code even if you have extreme difficulty typing on a hardware keyboard—or even if you can’t type on a hardware keyboard at all.Talon is the software that I use to code by voice (I also use an onscreen keyboard, but that’s for another post). It’s Mac-only for now, but it’s coming to Windows and Linux very soon.

Don’t let the name fool you. CSS-Tricks is more than just CSS (the styling language of the web). It covers beginner-level to expert-level topics in web development. In my opinion, it shines in its ability to deliver practical, insightful intermediate-level topics.For anyone just starting out, you will undoubtedly become familiar with CSS-Tricks as it often holds the top spots on search results pages for common web dev searches. This is because CSS-Tricks offers an enormous amount of quality content, including in-depth guides, a library of helpful code snippets, and a full-blown CSS reference with explanation and examples.
