    Hello everybody.
    Hope you all have a very nice Easter.
    Anyways, the wife wants to do a course, online, for web design.
    I must say that she knows nothing about any web design language. :oops:
    All she knows is to work with a computer.
    She's good at art and design and she's ever so enthusiastic about this.
    Any real advice on where to start and the best courses for beginners would be very much appreciated.
    A very nice weekend for all of you and bring on those Easter eggs.

    Another place I would say is W3schools. They do tutorials from HTML to SQL and even have their own certs - I wouldn't/couldn't (as I have no direct experience with them apart from doing a couple of tutorials which I found useful) say that they're on par with CIW certs, as they are Certificates of Completion rather than qualifications as such :)

    As she's an artist and not a programmer (not a bad thing at all btw) I would suggest focusing on XHTML, HTML 5 and CSS + artistic side of things (layouts, photo editing, photoshop, banners).
    She won't be able to complete projects on her own due to lack of programming skills (everything is dynamic these days) but designers as such have their own place in the industry.

    Hope that helps
