  1. Hello everybody! My name is Javier, I moved to the US in my 30's as many immigrants with no money, no english and no family, twenty years later I'm ready to start my new adventure, web development! I have no skills in coding (very basic). I know I will find a lot of knowledge in these forums. Since I was in high school I wanted to work with computers, but never have a chance until now, I love play the guitar and I have an obsession with dominate the Vim text editor (is a personal challenge). My goal is to became a full-stack developer I'm interested in learning HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, Python

  3. So, about the time when covid-19 started it's mean streak, I decided to pursue my goal of a career change, from pre-school teacher to a full-fledged nerd. Through my life I've been a nerd in hiding so to speak, so I figured out, hey! let's give coding a chance! I found udemy.com and started a masterclass in Java... just to bite off more than I could chew. I followed along the course, to about 60% completion before I realized: I'm following blindly, trying to learn something new, but I'm really not learning "anything". I also realized that the tutor had mad skills when it came to Java, but wasn

  13. I will be a badass and say that there are the fifth way of doing Marketing. I am talking about this way when all the work is done by someone and you just pay for it. I am not ironizing here, I’m just trying to say here that the most valuable thing in this life is not money, not the popularity of our product or websites, firms, no, it’s time. So, if you have time to do it all by yourself, I’m happy for you. I choose to find a place like https://marketingconsultant.com.sg/ and they will do anything I need. For the price they are requesting, I feel a little bit guilty of taking their time. You ca

  14. Hello everyone, I just bought the US$799 mentor program and I am excited to start this journey in 2021. Quick introduction of myself. I am 45 year old, married, two kids, with a mortgage(of course), full time working as a quality manager for a company in the electronic manufacturing sector. During this Covid19, I saw my friends being laid off and out of a job. I myself in the past had been fired a few times which were not performance related. it was not nice. I want to control my life. I want to learn to code for a secondary skills. Work as a freelancer to have side incomes wit

  17. Hey , trying to download MySQL but can only do the demo while following the course. Anyone know how I can access MySQL? I downloaded it but I don't know where to access it on my computer rather than the demo. Also when I try to use the demo it displays this message....perhaps it would be better to just use the version on my computer as opposed to the demo:

  18. I'm an experienced engineer/developer and I have worked as a corporate developer all my life, as either a FTE/perm or contractor through temp agencies. I have an itch to go independent and wonder what I should do? There are so many potential routes: 1) Try to parlay my existing skills (backend Java, databases, cloud) and network into contracts with medium and large companies 2) Pivot and get into web and wordpress development. This seems more fun to me than enterprise stuff but the clients would be different most likely, unless I could target the larger companies as well. I am g

  21. Looking to move from working my engineering job to something that allows me more time for family. Own boss and all that. I really liked the youtube videos and look forward to going through the courses and starting to freelance. While I'm hoping to think of a way to apply domain knowledge I have, I figure it might make sense to see what the demand/need is out there and work on filling it. I'm in southern California, so trying to figure out what is in demand in this area.

  22. Yeah, I think it's all about constant practice - which can be tough given there are several coding languages. I've been told that young monks re-read holy texts tons of times in order to memorize them. So, perhaps taking this course once is good, but maybe not enough to reinforce everything to a master degree.

  24. Hello Jim, I understand your frustration. I was able to get through and understand the CRUD basics course. Yeah, 2 months is a pretty rough response time. I assume you've repeated the CRUD course a few times. If you haven't tried this already, I'd put your code in difchecker (https://www.diffchecker.com/) alongside the code you can download from the course. What I do is find a section that is probably giving trouble - it may be small. I'll copy the code I've written, and then copy the correct course code and paste it alongside one another. I tend to do this only af

  25. So here seems to be the stages leading up to $_SESSION['cart'] being set: First, someone clicks a link generated by m_products 'cart.php? id=' . $product['id'] Second, cart.php sees the product id in the url (generated by someone clicking the above link), and calls this function in m_cart.php to add a product: $Cart->add($_GET['id']); Third, m_cart.php starts this function: public function add($id, $num = 1) public function add($id, $num = 1) { //setup or retrieve cart $cart = array(); if(isset($_SESSION['cart'])) {

  27. Hi Hasan, I recently purchased the Web Dev course and I'm happy with it. Prior to Stef's course I wasted a lot of time on various online courses through Youtube, Udemy, and LinkdedIn Learning. I feel Stef has a good way of presenting the material in that he keeps it basic, simple, and easy to understand. Each video is followed by questions to re-enforce the lesson. I also encourage you to take notes while watching the videos. I feel this course is a good way to establish your foundation in HTML, CSS, and Javascript. It has given me the confidence to progress, whereas prior to hi

  29. Thanks for the kind review! Helped a lot. I think I may just do a form and validate it with JS at the end of the page. But , like you said, it doesn't leave a traceable message. I tried to make the contact button as easy as possible to press and link to my email immediately. Maybe I should put "Email Me" for the button so the user knows what to open it with.What would you suggest? Also, in the footer it contains my phone number and email address.

  34. Good afternoon everyone, I was working with the PHP x MySQL course and noticed that if you change the root password from default 'root' to your own unique password. it automatically locks you out. I already am aware some may read this and think why not just leave it like that then change it later for production; that is the catch-22 of this situation. Because if you just go with the flow of it, you are setting yourself up for problems that could arise from any rootkits hidden on your computer that inject malware and trigger DDoS at any moment. I'm still trying to pinpoint but google has

  39. If you're using Linux you'll find out pretty fast that MAMP isn't an option. If you try to install the alternative, Ampps ( https://ampps.com/downloads ) and it doesn't work, as it didn't for me this week, try the page linked here. If you're a complete newb like me when you began here this page is excellent for it's clarity and succinctness, just take your time. https://io.bikegremlin.com/12127/lamp-stack-mint/ If you have a struggle with the path/link to localhost/php see the comments.

If you want to rank your website your onsite should be good because if your on-page is good and according to Google guidelines you can rank your website but for that, your have to select low competition and medium competition. Always use longtail keywords like if you provide website development then you can use "website development services provider". Always use your target keywords in URL, title, and meta description. Maintain your keywords density which is 1% to 2% which is according to google guidelines and always uses unique content don't post copied content because google always values th
