  1. 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

  2. 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

This was a useful video I found a few weeks ago and I got a lot from it: 17 Sublime Text Shortcuts and Tips The text version he mentions is here: http://GitHub repository: https://github.com/michaelcheng429/17-sublime-text-tip PS: Let's call it 18 tips: 18] Removing a plugin from Sublime text 3: This afternoon I had to do just that and was almost demented until I found the answer below.

  8. Hi everyone my name is Colt. I've been a subscriber on Stef's Youtube channel(s) and an instagram follower. I just finished the interactive developer course and am currently working on Studioweb projects. After completing the course and completing some self study I would like to break out and start freelancing albeit it might not be ideal timing.

  17. 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

  18. That's true re the constant practice, and I like the monastic analogy. The master level of knowledge may be a stretch, or may not, but reaching a level of competence that gives confidence enough to make a living from these skills would be an achievement in itself. I need to pay less attention to external uncertainties too such as Covid, Brexit, and in Scotland the threat of a hostile UK government. This isn't really the place for politics so i'll stop there. One thing I'd like is to get to the end of 2021 and think, well that was a bit too beige.

  19. 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

  21. It's good you asked as there had been something I couldn't quite put my finger on. I like the overall style and the footer is fine, but after a bright clear start with "Hi there, I'm Ryan Van Dyke" it's black all the way to the footer. It's too much darkness. I think keeping an eye on the times we live in is a good idea, and there's a lot of darkness and uncertainty in the air right now, and a lighter tone without being in your face might help to lift the mood. And you've almost got that. Context is important. I remember the old wild west days of the internet when black websites wer

Creating real value for people is what gets me out of bed every morning! Although I've taken some of coding courses and self-learned a bit of programming, I am no authority on the subject. I feel like I know just enough to understand how everything works. However, I find topics of modern tech implementation pretty exciting and I look forward to listening what everyone has to share

  34. Been away a while, when the state installed a new security software that blocked KillerSites. I don't even touch my laptop anymore, so I have not been in since work blocked it. But it is available again now so I am back. Security has fallen by the wayside as the state entity hamstrung my Divisions attempt at having their own security... me. Now I am back to work as a Programmer and training up in C#, .NET, & Azure, as we finally get away from Java and Oracle. So, as I am no longer doing Security, I will no longer be posting much there. Good to be back!

Hi, I recently started the php videos and as stefan suggested to go inside the conf folder and search for display_errors and turn it on, i did it but was not able to see the errors on the page, i was surprised and kept repeating for some time, then when i searched for the word php.ini in phpinfo file i saw it showing a different path --- Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php7.3.8/conf/php.ini The file was actually inside the bin directory php directory and so on, so when i went inside there and changed it , it worked, just thought of sharing it as there are 2 locations where you find th

  39. In the video Stef talks about disabling CSS in Chrome to see the impact it has on a website. However this is an older version of Chrome and I couldn't find a tool to do this in the current version (maybe that's my inexperience). I did find the extension "disable-HTML" in the Chrome web store by Daniel Lucks (link below). It's actually an elegantly simple control panel for this extension with straight forward "on/off" buttons for not just CSS but also JavaScript, images, cookies and pop-ups-note pop-ups are defaulted to off when you install it. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta

  45. The course is pretty thorough however when you first get started this can get to feel overwhelming at first. My personal opinion is you have to give yourself the time to go through the entire course, even if you don't fully understand what you are watching. The idea here is that you will start to see the bigger picture and how the code starts to tie together. When you go back through a second time you will feel less intimidated and the smaller things that might seem to be flying past you will become much easier to absorb the second go around. if you get stuck hit the forum here and someone wil

  46. Web design is about code and not about tools. You would not learn how to build a house by learning to use a nail driver right? You would learn using a hammer because it is about technique and planning and not learning tools. One you can build a house you can learn to use a nail driver to speed the process (and easier on your back/knees). Same here. To start learning, use notepad, that is what I had to use in school (and a horror called Emacs). Learn the code and how to work with it. THEN when you can create web sites, move up to free editors to help speed the process a bit. Eventually if y

  47. To be perfect as a web designer, you have to read all about above mentioned things. After that to be master in those field you have to practice more and more in order to be skillful in those platform - start doing small-small designs for the beginning after that try to design complex designs for gaining some confidence within you. For beginning practice, i will suggest you w3schools sites which is a WYSIWYG web design tutorial which is an awesome platform for all newbie web designer to understand basic web design techniques.
