How did everyone here get into web design? Share your stories
Years ago, about 2002, I was pretty bored playing around with games and stuff on the computer in my spare time and I loved looking at websites, then I started thinking, I want my own!!
So naturally I started out on a free webhost using frontpage to create my pages... haha.. and signed up to a few webdesign forums that told me "What the hell are you doing? Get into dreamweaver!!" SO I did And after lots of practise etc, learning that you should probably use a domain and real hosting I'm here!!
I believe I still have way more to learn, the web design industry is HUGE, theres always new things to learn and new marketing techniques, thats why I created this site, so we can all learn together
I first started a year ago when my boss wanted a website for his company and seen as I'm good with computers he told me to do it haha
Kinda liked it and now I have my own little site running but not really released to public yet, I'll let you guys know when its finished!
back in 2001 I started using Piczo and FreeWebs as I wanted my own website then I thought:
So then I searched and searched and found a host, then I got confused and said:
so then I learned HTML and designed a site, it was rubbish, it has no colour at all! so then I thought:
So I got some TEMPLATES! and then used them so I was expert
and thats my story.
lol :yay: :wave:
Sounds soo like me! I'm pretty sure we've all started off on things like freewebs to test the waters!
I got into web design as I was taking a course at school for programming and one of our assignments was to make a site with HTML, from there I kept it going and now am making good money with it via Google Adsense
I found a book in my school library dedicated to making your own website. It covered only very basic HTML, then I dove deeper...
Is web design more interesting than application programming?
i first started to design website for my forum in my engineering college i created an website and my college friends said it was fine then i designed using frontpage.
then i now using the dreamware softwae for building my website.
Great stories guy's really interesting seeing where everyone came from
unfortunately I don't
I don't know how to design my own website . poor me, I have learn and know little bit about Html now. PHP is too hard i see
But I had to have my own website someday. Wish me luck
HTML code is quite easy. And if you start with something more easier like C++ or C with time you will learn PHP
