Fresh Start(I think it’s a project of Agudah?)
Thank you so much, I will forward the info to her.
A great way to start on your own is to visit http://www.datesite.com there is an excellent html tutorial there.
I did take some courses from a “vendor” many years ago, but I have also learned a lot from books (the “Dummies” books give you a good start) and from looking online. A good site (off the top of my head) is http://www.w3schools.com. Hatzlacha!
designalive.net (they have an ad on yeshivaworld)- it’s live but online so you do it from home…
ramateshkolian- are you taking courses in designalive?
Hi I’m a professional Web Developer, I just signed up so I can reply to ‘Porty’, contrary to popular belief w3scools.com is in no way affiliated with the ‘w3c’ (World Wide Web Consortium, those that make the web standards), they actually have A LOT of mistakes on their website, learning from them will only get you used to bad coding, go to http://www.w3fools.com and see what they have to say.
P.S. To answer OPs question, I went to an expensive school in Manhattan, and I’m a ‘Developer’ not a ‘Designer’…
Good luck on whatever you end up doing…
A very good book is “Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML” which you can find at http://www.headfirstlabs.com/books/hfhtml/ they also have a sample chapter there.
Disclamer, I write for O’Reilly though I had nothing to do with that book
She might want to consider learning WordPress. This is taking over a good part of the web. It is very easy to learn and the best way to learn is to find someone to teach privately.
