Embarking on the P2PU School of Webcraft

I was inspired by Alan Liddell's latest post where he has started working on the P2PU course "School of Webcraft" and thought "Why the hell not?!" You see my experience with HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, etc all stems from a DIY attitude of learning it myself and hacking along the way. At best I can wade through code and make a few edits to make stuff do what I want. At worst I'm completely lost most of the time. And I'd like not to be, so this is a great opportunity to kill two birds with one stone by learning more about how P2PU is delivering courses (and yes, badges) and also learn some real knowledge about all the acronym soup I use everyday in some way. I'm looking forwarding to learning a lot and blogging the process all the way.
