Just what I needed!
on 13 February 2011
For almost 20 yrs I've been an environmentalist; all I know about computers had been just cut n paste, emails, and where on the monitor was the menu bar, stutus bar and the like.....Till I decided to open a web site with some ideas that I had. I did some research on the web on opening a web site (professionally). I eventually arrived at dreamweaver and expression web 4. I bought both of those books but as a student, I got the expression studio 4 software free from microsoft so I went with the expression web 4.
In 2 weeks, of reading the book and practicing the execises in this book even my language has changed. I now have a broad idea about the way the internet works and the good thing U DONT EVEN AV TO LEARN CODE. This book is like a "wiser man leading a learner to cross the major motor way". It is a very good book for people who want a jump start to life as a web developer and designer.................
From this book u can then move on to specialist topics like ASP.NET and AJAX, jQUERY and PHP (eventhough the book delt with these subjects well as a beginner; anyway U couldnt carry the book if it had to delve into all those) and the like
But by the end of this book, (IF U REALLY WANT TO OPEN A WEBSITE and MANAGE IT PROPERLY)Your website will be up and running and u dont even have to do any of those specialist topics I mentioned above.
