  1. No jobs at my area at the moment. Actually, many lost their jobs . So I want to be a freelance. I am kind of opening a new opportunity myself. I know it's not easy as there are lot of freelancers out there and they have great experience but I am trying to do my best and use the available resource, I have, which is TIME. I don't actually know if I'll succeed or not after a lot of reading and trying code.
  2. Hi, I'm new to web development. I learned HTML (simple language) and I am working on CSS. Some say that CSS won't take more than a week to learn. What I found is that CSS has a lot of topics (text styling, margins, padding, borders, image styling, positioning, layout,...etc) so the question is "Is it necessary to be good at CSS as a developer or I just need to know the basics and then go to Javascript and PHP?"
  3. Most beginners(including me) learn the basics and they find it difficult to build a real website. So we try to copy (model) a website that we found interesting and easy to build. I don't know if what we are doing is the correct way of learning or not. But we're just trying to learn on our own. We'd like to hear from web experts what is the best way to learn and build 'real' websites.
  4. Thanks for your reply. I'll try to do that but I have to wait a little bit until I read about page layout.
  5. Hi, I am a new CSS learner. I have been reading a book "CSS the missing manual" for a while. I got a soft copy of the book and I read about 6 chapters till now. After learning the basics, I feel bored and clueless. I don't know what I should do exactly to make something meaningful. Yes, I know HTML tags and CSS styles to make them look better. But it's not enough. I don't know the METHOD of how to think of a web page/ website. How to make choices and organize content. I don't know if I am the only one who has this problem or other new learners have the same problem. I'd like to know what should I do. Should I continue reading the book or go somewhere else and try to work on building a web site. I am really confused but at the same time I am bored because I just read what each style property does, try it on a sample web page, and get back to continue reading.
  6. The problem with w3schools is that it does not teach how to think of a web page. It just explains what each tag does in plain English. For me, I think this is not enough to build a good web page. I want to learn how to put things together
  7. Thanks for your reply. I am going to buy that book soon.
  8. I'm new to web programming. I learned basic HTML tags using w3schools website. It was easy to grasp and simple but I did not build any good looking web pages just basic text, images, and hyper links. Now, I want to learn CSS to build good looking (real world) web pages. I did a search on amazon and I found that this book has good reviews CSS the missing manual I'd like to hear from you guys if you recommend this book or other books to start with. Thanks for your help,
