About Me



Hello my name is Shad DeHart and CagedIllusions.com was my first website and design ever...

Caged Illusions

My first webdesigns and websites Cagedillusions.com, DeHartsWebDesign.Com, Tekagephp.com and my blogs Dehartswebdesign.wordpress.com, Tekagephp.wordpress.com these are my firsts I literally started learning how to code on March 1, 2021 and this is what I have so far and today is May 15, 2021...

I am a 44 year old male from Athens, Ohio. I have been a licensed Cosmetologist for the last ten years, but I have always wanted to learn webdevelopment so I could build my own websites from scratch, studioweb.com is teaching me how to make my dream come true. 🤓These are images of some of my work at Paramount Beauty Academy, and the first beauty salon I worked in. Plus, styles I did on the side I love putting a smile on a person’s face and brightening their day. 😎

 I really enjoyed the work I did but my injuries have led me down a different path…





An injury from a car wreck on my way to class one morning in 2003 has left me unable to do the work I once did, I was a passenger in a car that was T-boned by a snow plow. Long story short I am adapting to my new way of life, since I cannot work, how I once did I am learning to adapt. Recently I decided to follow my dream and learn Web-development so I could build websites from scratch. And possibly keep putting smiles on people’s faces. I am hoping that within a couple years I might be able to switch my profession and become a full-stack-front-and-back-end-web-developer. I have a lot of work ahead of me, but I found something I am passionate about!

I was born in Portsmouth; Ohio and I went to over 44 different schools across the U.S. from kindergarten until my sophomore year of high school. My sophomore year of high school I was sixteen and was expelled for an entire year for assault on a teacher. It sounds a lot worse than it was all that happened was he grabbed me from behind and I did not know who it was so I blocked his hand off of my shoulder and he pressed charges for that. That incident allowed me the freedom to do something that most 16 year old dont even think of. Journey across the United States of America.

The Beginning of the Journey!!!

A life event that I will never forget is the time I hitchhiked across the United States. I was sixteen years old and full of piss and vinegar. My stepfather who has recently passed told me that when a man is old enough to retire, he usually doesn’t feel as healthy as he did all the years he spent working. His point struck a chord in me and the summer of 92, I decided that I wanted to see the west and just so happened I had been expelled from school that year, for assault on a teacher it sounds a lot worse than it was the only thing that happened was I blocked his arm off my shoulder when he grabbed me from behind because my pants had holes in them lol…

I owned a Volkswagen van with a pop-up top at the time. Loved that old van, I was also working at a local restaurant that summer and I had saved a little cash back, but not enough to do what I was planning. I asked my uncle and best friend at the time if they would be interested in going out west with me. My uncle definitely was in but my buddy wasn’t so sure it took a few days to talk him into going with me. I did not want to go by myself! I would love to add some of the photographs from that trip but they where all burned in a house fire.


Standing Rock!!!!

In 2016 I went to Standing Rock, North Dakota and supported the tribes from many nations on the Lakota Sioux Reservation. The people gathered from all over the world to stand in solidarity against the Dakota Access Pipeline.  The tribes gathered at Standing Rock to try and stop a natural gas pipeline from bulldozing what they say are sacred sites to construct a 1,172-mile pipeline. The tribes also wanted to protect the Missouri River, the primary water source for the Standing Rock Reservation, from a potential pipeline malfunction.

Amy Goodman, from Democracy Now was on the ground. This footage was the deciding factor for me to go and support the Tribes.


                         Ok back to learning how to create websites from scratch...

Learning to Build a Simple Website!

Learning to learn over 40 and loving it. When I was a child there was no internet.Now there is! So I will attempt to learn as much as I can as we move foward this is my first website, so we are learning to build it from scratch together, this blog post which is also my first, will be my documented guide on how to build a website and many other topic's that come up along the way. Here is a link to my favorite website.

We will need a few basic things to build a simple website, HTML5, CSS3, and javaScript! A good code editor is also a must. Although you can code with your notebook. Good code editors help you improve your coding performance. Hyper-text Markup Language(HTML) is the code used to give our content its structure. Hyper-text refers to hyper-links that may be in the html page. Markup language refers to the way tags are used to define page layout. March/30/2021

Foundations of a website.


We need to start with a foundation. A skeleton of sorts, and something to build upon. HTML, will be that skeleton and CSS will be the skin. Javascript will be added as we learn how to implement its dynamic properties properly.


HTML, tags

An HTML tag is commonly defined as a set of characters constituting a formatted command for a Web page. At the core of HTML, tags provide the direction for the visual content that one sees on the Web.



Tags are the backbone.
