  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

  22. 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:

  23. 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

  29. 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.

  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'])) {

  32. 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

  33. 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

  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

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
