Hello everyone, besides offering various services I also write a weekly article for my site about anything in web design and development. My topics vary and will consist of hints and tips for beginners, design and development processes, and basic information on code. Newer articles will appear on the main articles page. Older articles will be found under the quick links section in the future. I will showcase 3 to 5 articles on the homepage.
There is a lot of work that goes into a website that people do not always realise. When I started with web design we learned the very basics of HTML and CSS then proceded to build static webpages with "What you see is what you get" (wysiwyg) editors. Often times the web pages turned out really plain with no flare or interactivity besides maybe the use of a rollover button or a flash animation. I wondered if this was how web design really worked and if so how forms, games, and other interactive content was created in this manner.
Web design and development can be very fun and rewarding. If you are ready to try something new and exciting and not afraid to fail, the web can be for you. Try not to get too discouraged. There is a lot to learn. Before I ever built anything that was even somewhat functional I had read many books and spent hours practicing. It has been only recently that I felt comfortable to start offering web services. I hope everyone who reads my articles enjoys the read I hope they can help people with various problems, or at the very least give the drive to keep going with their projects..
