  1. Music while coding

    Depends on the type of coding you are doing. If it is kinda repetitious mindless work, then music is cool. But if you are trying to figure out something out, then music would be distracting. Although, if it is lowkey music, then it probably wouldn't be. Stef
  2. PHP first or JS

    In the StudioWeb series of courses, I ordered it JS first simply because JS is clientside. For schools to teach JS, it is much easier for them since all the JS code runs in web browsers. As soon as you go PHP, they have more configurations to do ... so I put PHP after JS. Stefan
  3. Some study questions

    Hi! Here is your roadmap to Wordpress freelance work: Do the StudioWeb core language training: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, SQL Do the Wordpress Themes course in the projects Do the CRUDE project course as well Start learning the Wordpress ecosystem ... know what the options are for the top themes, plugins, e-commerce options. My Business Battleplan course will help with the freelance/business end of things. You will be good to go. I assume you know the basics of Wordpress. Stef
  4. Well, the most obvious use of Java is for Android app development, since Java is the native language for that OS. That said, you would (in many situations) be better off developing mobile apps using the webstack, for the sake of having one codebase vs two. If you develop a mobile app, you will likely have to create it for both Android and iOS. And so if you write in Java for Android, you will have to write it again for iOS. Java is a great general purpose language and it has it's place. But with each project, you have to consider the pros and cons of the languages you can choose from, and that always goes beyond just tech considerations: Current code infrastructure Talent on hand Potential scale and integrations .... So it is hard for me to say, that Java is the choice for XYZ situation, where you evaluate the situation purely on a technology basis. Again, the above 3 points are just as valid considerations as the tech itself. Hope that makes sense. Stef
  5. PHP first or JS

    Hi, Not absolutely required you do the JavaScript first. It is up to you. Sorry for the delay getting back to you. Stef

  7. The Issue of Net Neutrality

    One of the most important subjects of our time.
  8. Hi, I get this question often enough, so I made a video:
  9. I bought the Learn web dev.. at killervideostore.com...

    14, a great age to be! That's very cool that you are taking charge of your education already - got job! My advice is to be consistent with your studies, and try to stay chill ... because a calm mind learns more easily. And if you feel at times your are learning slowly, don't worry, that's normal. In those situations, just keep working and in no time, you will understand. Stefan
  10. I bought the Learn web dev.. at killervideostore.com...

    Hi mrmetech, I sent you your login info just now. There is a little delay because we have to add your account to StudioWeb. Let me know if you got the email with your activation codes. Stef
  11. Incorrect Answers in IWD course?

    Hi, In StudioWeb, we are looking for very specific answers in the code challenges. So, there are times where you could code it another way, and it would work in a web browser, but SW is still looking for the specific answer. I will review the question though to see if it can be made more clear. Stef
  12. Can't find the Quiz

    Hi, Email me, and I will set you up for the quizzing. Stef
  13. Java slower than PHP?

    Hi, To write native Android apps, you have to use Java. You can't with PHP. Java is slower to write in, but at runtime, Java I believe still runs faster. But I haven't checked in years and PHP 7 is a major speed increase over the previous versions of PHP.
  14. Ch4 L6 hyperlinks part 2: target="_self"

    Not required. Sometimes though in code, it is good to be explicit. Stef
  15. Hi! Given how bad a student I was, there is some irony that something conceived out of my mind (with the help of Ben, Rob and others) is actually going to be used in my old high school this coming August! ... Something of a personal feather in my cap. Stefan
  16. Come on in! Have a coffee with Stef!

    You mean my orange shirt from years ago? ... If so, I've retired that shirt. Stef
  17. Firefox just updated itself on my Mac and it is a nice improvement. It seems much faster and it has some nice convenience features. ... Worth checking out. Stef
  18. Hi, newbie here

    Sure. Much to come. If you feel like sharing your experience, please feel free. Stef
  19. Hi, There is a preview button and you should be able to edit post after posting. Stef
  20. Why I See Blank Page After Submitting Form And Why Echoing Fails ?

    ... I am guessing that your echo code is not placed in the spot that it is able to write to the page.
  21. Should you learn C++ in 2018

    Hi, A did a video about the viability and job opportunities of C++ in 2018. Some general comments: C++ is the engine building programming language that you use when you need super high performance. These days, in the age ultra fast CPU's and mature development platforms, its' use will probably continue over time ... especially since Swift runs nearly as fast as C++ at run-time ...and without all the C++ hassles. Here is the video - you might want to have a coffee while watching: Stef
  22. Why I See Blank Page After Submitting Form And Why Echoing Fails ?

    If the echoes are not printing out, that tells you the conditions are returning false. ... So the first step is to figure out why this is happening: condition returning false. Stef
