  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

  8. Hi Jim, Is the "lastname" column in your "records" database really spelled as "lastname"? Maybe you made a typo. Hope this helps!

  9. Hey all, I'm almost in the 50 club! I just turned 49 in June. It's good to see that I'm not the only who decided to learn code at this age. I just started and I am loving it so far. Wishing you well, Daniel

  15. Thank you, that is very easy to use, but you should try those suggested by Stephen they are very useful. By doing this I also learned how to pin an extension to the toolbar, so that's a big help.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  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

  20. Ok cool You also seem certain that the url and paths match up, but just to rule it out, Can you copypaste the url from your webrowser and the exact path from the root of you mac? (right click hold alt and then choose copy as pathname) Also, in your MAMP settings, which folder is set as your root for the websites? Also copypaste exact path here. Which exact error are you getting? Whats really helpful is a screenshot of the full screen when the error shows.

  24. 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

  35. 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

  37. 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

  42. Hi, After holding off for a long, long time. I am going to be creating a premium entrepreneurs forum, accessible via monthly subscription. People have been asking for this for a while ... so I am finally getting this going. It will include the core course, Business Battle Plan, in both video and mp3 format. I will also be adding new lessons, commentary videos and business podcasts over time. The idea is to create a business mentoring forum, where people will access my best content, and members will be able to ask questions. Finally, I will be creating content based on member fe

  44. 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
