  1. Looking For Designer

    Hey Ross, I can make your website look GOOD! As well as running several of my own websites, I do alot of design for my development clients and I'm used to working on big projects. Can we talk on Skype or something so I can find out more ? Adam
  2. CS50 is Harvard's own first semester of computer science, and it's online for free. **Computer science is NOT web development. ** IMO your time would be much better spend learning Wordpress and getting sales experience if you haven't yet made your first buck. Moreover.. I think it's a bad first course to take *if* your goal is to make money from website development. There's tons of great courses out there for that - killersites has one, there's codeacademy, freecodecamp, and so on. After being comfortable with their webstack of choice, who here has tried CS50? One line caught my eye in particular: 7 weeks of C, with carryover to other languages. That sounds useful. On the other hand, you learn stuff like how the mouse pointer works on a very technical level - useless for making money with web development... in my opinion. What do you think? Has anybody taken CS50 and completed it?
  3. Sublime is great. I prefer it to notepad++ because it's easier to install extensions. A great extension is emmet - it gives you some really useful shortcuts like so: h1.main-text>ul.main-mav>li.nav*5 outputs this: <h1 class="main-text"> <ul class="main-mav"> <li class="nav"></li> <li class="nav"></li> <li class="nav"></li> <li class="nav"></li> <li class="nav"></li> </ul> </h1> If you dislike the default colour scheme, you can change it to the same as notepad++ in preferences.
  4. Agreed! Bangkok I mainly met English teachers, but up here more or less every western guy I've met is a coder or marketing/website freelancer and every girl I've met is a blogger. Also Stef - This invision forum software is really nice and clean. I stay logged in (through facebook I presume), and the notifications make sense. -- Thanks for answering the question. When you say there's 4 levels, is 4 inherently more complex and desirable than 2 or 3? I'm just about ready to hit level 2, so I can concentrate on higher level business activities - increasing my knowledge, finding new clients, hiring people. My goal is to gradually become an expert in PHP + Wordpress, able to do any and all jobs which come my way, but actually doing almost none of them - just the really cool ones. My friend here has himself a developer from the Philippines, who primarily uses Divi. He's paid him $300 a month for a few years now - is this a realistic approach? Ideally, I need a guy who has a total understanding of PHP to build websites for me using Beaver builder & wordpress, but able to take on more complex jobs. My understanding of PHP isn't good enough right now to hire anybody to do more complex jobs yet - I just had to turn down a nice web app. I think I could comfortably sell $4k-6k good month (2 or 3 x $2000 or similar), and using page builders there's more than enough time - slow clients not withstanding... for $300 in labour per month, the margins there are obviously huge. What do you think of this approach? Too much of a hack, or entrepreneurial (while it lasts)? Cheers Adam
  5. Do you think it's ok for a service provider to call himself an entrepreneur? I live in Chiang Mai where's there's an abundance of people who are working remotely. I've heard people refer to themselves and me as an entrepreneur. I usually tell them I'm not an entrepreneur yet, as I only provide 1 service. I think you can start calling yourself an entrepreneur when you provide several services across minimum 2 separate businesses. What do you think? Adam
