How to learn HubL & HTML/CSS for HubSpot

SOLVE

Hello 
I did not learn how to code yet, but somehow a lot of things need to be done in the HTML & CSS Files in HubSpot. 
So I wan't to learn the coding, at the moment I am learning the HTML Basics with the App "Mimo". But  HubL is a bit different, can someone tell me how to learn the best way to understand the HubL coding faster? Or is Mimo fine to start? 

Thanks a lot for your help!

Hi @NOnboarding

 

you won't have a good time if you won't invest at least a bit of time into learning Hubl. 

You don't need to go the full-fletch developer route but you should learn at least the basics. 

The approach I always recommend is:

  • Pass the CMS for developers certification in the HubSpot academy
  • learn if-statements, loop-logic and the basic functions in the developer-documentation
  • create a CMS Developer sandbox here
  • try things out in your sandbox
  • develop things in sandbox
  • recreate things in production Hub (unless you create a advanced local-dev environment with CLI and GitHub)

 

Or you can pay somebody to do the dev work for you

 

 

best,

Just go to udemy, buy a course for 10 dollar and start learning the basics first: html, css, later on javascript and hubl. It will take some time, but you will get there.

HTML is a markup language and HubL is more of a programming language. They are different. This academy course should get you started, but really at the core, you'd want a programming basics type training. I'd suggest Javascript since you'll most likely run into that when doing web stuff as well. A Javascript course at codeacademy might help. Basic programming principles will help you get HubL.
