5 Free Web Developer Tutorial sites for Complete Rookies to Learn Web Design and Development
Hello all. In one of my last discussions I asked about web development and whether you should outsource your web development or learn to DIY?
So far, the responses in that thread are I think what most people would say. Either learn to do it yourself, (if it's not too hard), and then do-it-yourself. Or if it's too hard, just outsource it to someone else and pay a web developer to do it for you.
But let's face it, it can be a bit of a minefield finding a good web developer these days. There are some good, some bad and some ugly ones. There's those genuine, ethical guys that charge fair prices. And there's those that charge astronomically high prices!
And what's more, just because someone charges a high price, doesn't mean they wont do a good job of it and those that charge low prices don't mean they will do a good job of it and do it on time and all that like a good web developer would.
It can be a trivial thing to get the right web developer and designer for your site. So it pays to shop around and take your time. Use real reviews and recommendations, ask for suggestions and get people, businesses to send you their offers before you settle on someone based on their price and trustworthiness or ratings and recommendations.
But if you're the type that likes to learn how to do it yourself, no matter how hard it is. And the harder it is, the more you want to learn how to do it. Or perhaps you're someone that likes to bootstrap from the ground up and want to learn much more about web development and coding languages. Or even if you're someone that just wants to get a good foothold onto the basics to intermediates to other expert web dev skills and tools.
You know because they're quoting too high a price and you could save money learning this and doing it yourself. But on top of that, you'd also possibly be able to provide those same high priced web development services to other people too.
Then if that sounds like then here are some great free resources of some of the best free web development tutorials for web dev rookies to get up to speed with!
