  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

  11. First of all, what's web development? Although it should seem hard to define, web development is seen as the simplest way of making, building, and maintaining websites. Typically, web development involves a front-end (everything that interacts with the user) and a back-end - hidden from the regular user - which contains all the business logic and interacts with a database. Python inserts itself in web development as a back-end language, and it's usually combined with another front-end language (frequently javascript) to create a full website. Back to our star question, the rationale

  16. Social media marketing and email marketing you can attract your customers or visitors from both these marketing strategies. But here, I want to say that social media marketing is better than email marketing for getting quick results but you can't forget your email strategy.

  19. 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:

  20. 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

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  30. 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

  31. 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'])) {

  33. Hello Stefan, I wanted to see if you can provide a guide of how this course should be taken. I did start on Archive 0 and went from there. I did not see where the quiz's were. The folder beginners python 3 source files, not sure where these come in for the course. So far I am enjoying the course and how you are moving alone. thank you,

  34. 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.

  35. I like it. It's clean and sharp and the nav bar is ever present, which isn't always the case. Is the contact button unfinished? If not maybe reconsider the pop up asking how you'd like to open this. Personally how easily accessible a website makes it to contact them can be a deal breaker for me. If you go with a contact form to fill in with enquiries/comments I'd also leave your contact email easily visible too. Again it's a personal preference but I prefer to copy an email address and send from my own email account as forms usually leave no trace of when a message was sent leaving you to

  36. Hello you wonderful coders you. I've been staring at this line of code (line 74 highlighted below) for a while in m_template.php, and want to share what it's doing. function getAlerts() { $data = ''; foreach($this->alertTypes as $alert) { if (isset($_SESSION[$alert])) { foreach($_SESSION[$alert] as $value) { $data .= '<li class="'. $alert .'">' . $value . '</li>'; } unset($_SESSION[$alert]);

  38. 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.

  41. 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
