Front-end web developer career for person with a disability?

I am disabled and can only work remotely, part-time. I'd like to become a front-end web developer. I've heard that after your education (in an online bootcamp or whatever) a lot of the actual learning for this career happens your first few years when you're working as a junior developer full-time in an office. Is that true? Have you encountered many part-time jobs in this field? [more inside]

Are you experienced?

I have started getting interested in how websites work, and am intrigued by the stories about those coding camps where people can jump right in. I am kind of wondering if I could make a go of it in coding, but I don't have much of a background. How can I learn more about front-end coding, experience design, etc. in an efficient, cost-effective way? (Is this a stupid idea?) [more inside]

A way to automatically generate a list of hyperlinks from directory tree

I have the need to periodically crawl our FTP archive and generate HTML hyperlinks for each file in the tree. This seems like the sort of thing that would be perfect for a script to do, but I have no idea where to start. I have shell access to the server. Is there a relatively simple way to do this? It doesn't need to retain the "tree" structure, even just a pile of filenames converted to hyperlinks would be fine. [more inside]

What's still unnecessarily hard to do in HTML?

I've been out of the HTML-writing game for a decade or so. Last time I did it, lots of seemingly simple things were very difficult to do (and not always because of IE! Vertical centering comes to mind, or truncating wrapped text to a fixed number of lines). I'm collecting examples of things that an HTML-naïve designer might want but which are technically impossible, poor-performing, or require crazy contortions to implement. Let's not worry about old browsers, and assume modern technology.

Don't Span Me, Bro

My work computer adds an html tag that I don't want it to add. It happens only on my work computer when I am adding content to a website via a CMS. The text area that I am typing in is - in theory - not supposed to do anything except add plain text. This doesn't happen when I use other computers, just my primary work computer. The tag it adds is: span style="font-size: 14px It is driving me crazy. Any ideas how to stop this span-ness?
