  2. Cyber Security is a branch of it's own and I have been studying it for over a year now. Not only do they not need to know everything, but it would leave them no time to actually build web sites. Security is mostly the realm of ISPs, servers and hosts, but it is not something that you can ignore simply because you are "Simply the web developer". If they get hacked and it suggests it is do to something you did not do or did wrong, not good for your business. So aside from making sure some simple rules are followed, it is a good idea to know that any Hosts you may suggest to a customer is trustworthy too. This is just 4 things web developers can do, I could suggest a lot more but that is more the hosts job. I am a former web developer and these are things I did not consider back then.

  10. Hello world!

    No, not at all. Found it funny considering yourself to old at 40 something. I think that age thing is a myth and a crutch used by older generations. Then again... what people see in social media is truly beyond me. Why would I care where you are or doing right now or what your food looks like. I am more interested in why you updating everyone that you are not home, come rob me? Maybe there is an age limit... anyone have a crutch I can borrow? Python really is easy, you would not be feeling so positive if it were Java most likely. But once you comprehend one language, you will note traits in all others. Stef is a good teacher. I learned Python back in 2000 and used to write code in my head speaking it to get my kid to sleep, worked like a charm... even I fell asleep during it! I like Python and keep nagging my boss to ditch Java for it.
  11. Hello world!

    Oui! Who are you suggesting is old here!? I will have you note young whipper-snapper that I am in my 50s and entering Cybersecurity by golly! 40s, ha! Many here may consider me an @$$, but none think of me as an old @$$... at least I don't think so. Seriously though, I don't think Stephan was Python when we met, he was a serious Java type. I think he is older than you, or at least close. Andrea will kill me if I suggest she is anything older than 29, then there was Limey, not sure where he disappeared, retired military, then got into IT. Actually I think you may fit in near the average age here. Not that many teens, I would say that back in the 90s and early 2000s our average age was 30s. So welcome to the forum and mind you don't trip over my walker young man.
  12. Super Beginner

    Good to hear. This forum was opened for beginners, not experts. Most of the regulars here like Andrea got their start building web sites by coming here. I am one of the few who actually learned this in a school, but even then I have picked up many tricks here and actually taught myself stuff while helping others. So never apologize for dumb questions, we all started out there and asked our own fair share. This is what Killersites was started for. Cheers!
