HELP NEEDED! Im a web design wannabee!!

  kootchi78 02:28 01 Apr 2006

Hi Guys,

I have recently decided to look into web design (for something to get my teeth into!) however I have to admit I'm a complete novice when it comes to this area.

I was wondering if any of you talented people could give me some advice on where to start really? What basic steps should I take to embark on learning in this field, any online help, recommended reads etc?? Anything really would help me loads!

Kind regards,

A web design newbie xxx

there must be millions of people just like you at any given moment, and as a consequence you'll have no difficulty finding lots of tutorials online.

A first step is to get yourself some software, so you can practice, and I recommend either NetObjects Fusion or Microsoft FrontPage for starters.

Then use Google to search for tutorials - you'll be swamped with links. It will take a little while to see the wood for the trees, but you'll gradually begin to understand the jargon, and practice building your first site. It's a huge subject, and this isn't the place for a tutorial, but we can give you plenty of help with specific questions as they arise.
