:whistling: :blink: I am starting a new business (nothing to do with computers) where I will be able to work from home. To help myself out I would like to learn code for web pages. This way I can have a backup if my new business is a little slow getting off the ground. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I would get the most mileage out of? Also I have been mainly on the hardware / networking side of computers, so I would need code that a newbe can learn. I do not have alot lot of knowledge on web pages or web page design. Any suggestions on where to start learning and in what? I want to go somewhere new.
Thanks

Personally, I like the O'Reily books. All you really need to know to effectively design webpages is HTML, although php and other languages can be helpful as well.

I prefer to write straight HTML in a program called Textpad (google for it). There are other applications which will design a webpage for you without you needing to know anything at all about the code behind it, but you can run into trouble down the line if problems develop.

HTML is about it unless you want a dynamic site then you would need something like PHP or ASP. The easiest way to make a website basically is just make a nice template in photoshop. Then put it into Dreamweaver, and put the tables and stuff in it and there you go.

I would read up a little on PHP and HTML enough to know the basics and get yourself open source web templates if you need a site, but as a business developing websites is a market thats a little over saturated these days and almost everyother teenager can make webpages.

Thanks for the info. I used HTML at work in Data Control so that will help. It does seem like everyone and their brother are doing web pages these days. I happen to have a friend who needs extra help once in a while in writing code. Thanks again for taking the time to answer my question.
