what is the best way to learn how to write and understand code. I am very new at this and very interested but I don't know where to start.
We have a full documentation site complete with tutorials and rag definitions at http://studio.rarewire.com/wordpress
Thanks Ian. I have gone through a few of these. I am talking "NEW at this" though. How did you learn about this stuff? Did you go to school for this? I can view a bit of code and make some slight changes and experiment like that to see what happens but I can't sit there with an idea of what I want to accomplish and start writing code. That is what I am trying to learn. I need to start with the basics. Kind of like what is the deal with these symbols < > /. I kind of have an idea but that's where I think I need to start.
That is a bit of a philosophical question as everyone learns a little differently. But a good place to start is learning what you can about HTML and XML, as our WIRE language is built on XML.

A great resource for learning about these languages is http://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_what...
Thanks Ian. As a matter of fact, I just found that exact site yesterday and am now in the process of learning the html language. Thanks for the info. Have a good day! :)
