Please take a minute to introduce yourself...
How did you start writing/programming for the web?
What kind of web-related projects do you work on?
Do you have any other interests?
[Information about web companies should be posted elsewhere; this thread is for people to introduce themselves.]
I come from a printing and publishing background, and began working on websites for print customers looking to "repurpose" their content. I now work for local government, where about a third of my time is spent on municipal web sites. My interest in web accessibility predates my current job, but the knowledge I've gained has proven valuable in it. Boating and gardening are among my other interests.
I come from the audio post-production and recording industry. I started long before computers, you know razor blades and magnetic tape. But as computers became more prevalent i started getting more interested in working with other digital art forms.
My first websites were for my own business. Then one day at the tennis club i made the mistake of telling the president they should have a website. That lead to a an ever expanding volunteer project that has no end in sight.
Then I started to gain a reputation amongst my wife's colleagues as someone who could help with their sites. So I have a little business on the side that I see as something i can do even into retirement. I think there is a niche for designers and consultants to very small business and individuals, who need a lot of hand holding and patient plain-spoken explanation of the options and facilities available to them.
Tennis, music, cooking and gardening are my hobbies.
I started (learing) programming in 1965 (I think); I effectively "word-processed" my computer-science diploma dissertation in 1971, using a program called the Matthewman Paginator that ran on the Titan computer in Cambridge to output a tape for a flexowriter. Um I started my first website in 1999, and I am still on it, but a part (the jigsaw puzzle shop) has grown into a small business.
I do choral singing and play the piano. I do actually do jigsaw puzzles occasionally, too, but now I pretend it's work.
Hi Everyone I am a newbie and would appreciate all the Help I can Get. Thank you.
I started teaching myself HTML about 8 or so years ago. I've done some generic sites using Yahoo, but trying to code as much as I could on my own or using other's scripts as opposed to WYSIWYG apps. Still, my knowledge is pretty basic - though I have stopped using frames a while back CSS goes right over my head, even though I've tried to get it.
Currently, I'm trying to revamp my podcast's website with various degrees of success.
I come from an electronics background have been building non commercial websites since 2000 , ie local village site , oil engine club (my other interest) etc
In spite of the time spent with websites there are times when I need help and searching the web for answers can prove to be a lengthy proccess ,
I gave up on trying to search for the answer to a current problem and have just spent best part of 5 hours solving how to make a button both print and increment a counter so I know how many people have printed the page
So it seemed like a good idea to register on this forum so I can post a question if I need to and perhaps answer if I can
Hi, I'm a newbie, glad to be here. I come from computer science background, so I'd like to compare notes with you all here. I register on this forum to wish that I can post a question and perhaps give answers if I can. Thanks!

Hi. First off I’d like to think you, whoever that might be, for a great forum!
My name is Pete and my alter ego is CrowDogs (see my aviator).
I started programming sometime in the 90’s with Visual Basic. I developed a free desktop program called Win-USA that contained some of the more important and historical documents of the USA. From that came numerous other programs and the desire to make websites.
I've developed the websites for my former and current employer which has started me doing some freelance work. Though I’ve only made a few hundred dollars, I do it more for the fun and occupation. It helps to keep this old mind sharp (relatively speaking).
That’s it, nothing more nothing less.
Thanks again for a great forum!
My name is Mathew and I work with a website development company am a first time user of this forum and hope to see you all on the forum soon.

Bye for now.
Hi my name is Tom and I am new here
I preview my work in a browser. If I'm doing anything with page layout or design, then I preview in all the browsers I have on my system, and then borrow a system with MSIE to make sure it doesn't butcher it too badly.
Start with installing the latest versions of all browsers that run on your system.
Notepad isn't a bad choice actually. Maybe it's a matter of disposition, but I actually learn and understand better when I have to type everything manually. You know, a little like when in school taking notes made more of it stick, even if you never looked at those notes later. When you learn a new (computer) language typing also forces you to take note of all the details like how quotes are used, different types of brackets and parenthesis, case and whatnot. When you leave something out or do something wrong otherwise and it doesn't work you notice it's there and what it is and hopefully you'll remember.
In the long run using Notepad is not very efficient, though. Rather you should use a more advanced text editor with features such as a clip book, so you don't have to type common code snippets again and again.
Yeah it also helps to have syntax color coding of some sort.
Sure, but that doesn't matter for the fundamental value of typing markup or any other kind of "code" when learning.*) You don't learn quicker or better because you have whiz-bang editor.
Finding a favourite editor isn't an easy task either, takes time searching and testing. Maybe it's better to use what you already have to begin with and spend the energy on learning. Once you are a bit on the way you also have a better picture of what you look for in an editor.
*) Later you type because it's quicker.

I was a dog trainer, a good friend of mine was also a dgo trainer. She quit and gave me her website and company name. I learned to code on the fly. The site was beautiful but this horrible mess of frames inside of frames inside of frames. (Her controlling ex-husband tried to build it so no one else could edit it, lol)I knew absolutely nothing about computers, but began learning out of desparation. I remember spending most of a week at the computer, slowly going through the coade, deleting one tag at a time to find it on the page, and then put a comment before the tag. I started to learn what some meant.
Now I'm working on a website for my fiance's business. I'm learning more every day!
Other interests are sidewalk chalk art, pumpkin carving, and piano.
Desperation is a great teacher. Glad you're enjoying it. Keep on going!
I'm tracy, from China.

They seem to be there now.
Greetings to all; No formal learning or schooling but
I have cobbled together my experences of computer electronics (basic before being asked to leave)Computer Programing (back when Cobal, Fortran and Basic was all the rage) and a lot of self teaching on Lotus 123, Database III+ and most recently Access.
I am now working on HTML and CSS programing and have come across a need to see some examples of HTML pages and CSS pages as they appear after compleation. I am learning the elements and the coding, but have a lot of questions on the layout. I.E. how to change the styles on the web page from one <p> to another.
Thank you for having the forum.

Welcome Olga. Hey, we all started there once. Ok, for me, that's a long time ago
My name is Johnathon, I am 17 years old and a senior at http://lps.lne.org, and I started my programming life at 16 years old. The extent of my knowledge is basic SQL and most of what there is to know about HTML. I just finished a semester long class on HTML and CSS in high school. As of know I do some developmental projects on my own, on some privately used Game databases, as well as personal projects for local organizations, web pages that is, at least until I get through college for Computer Sciences/Programming. As far as hobbies go, I am social, but I tend to be a gamer at heart. MMO's and dice and paper RPGs are where I generally stay. Outside of that, I participate, whenever possible in Skills USA, and I just recently achieved the highest award in Scouting, I am, as of 12/18/2012 a registered Eagle Scout od the Boy Scouts of America. If that doesn't mean something to someone, then I don't know what will. I hope I can benefit from the knowledge everyone has to offer, and eventually be able to offer some of my own some day. I have a feeling I will visit here often, through the years.
I've been doing basic web site building for about 15 years now but am now seeing the need to learn some HTML coding to fix my blunders...
Glad to be here, originally from, Ft Campbell, KY, last place of residence Baton Rouge, LA now retired and living in the wonderful country of the sunny Philippines...
Hoping to pic some brains and learn some of this code and my web page errors, repairing...
Cebu City, Philippines
Hows it going everyone?
As you can easily tell, I am new to this site and honestly, I am fairly new to programming and coding.
I have dabbled with python in the past for school, currently learning html and php, and I am udderly lost!
I hope this place can offer some help for me to understand what I'm doing wrong.
I would just like to point out, yes I am a student, and yes I will be asking for help with homework assignments. PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS NEXT PART! I understand that people come on to these websites all the time for others to do their work for them. I DO NOT MEAN TO IMPLY THIS! I will be asking for help on my assignments, but not the assignments themselves! I will be posting examples and alternations to the assignment so you dont think I am asking for someone to do it for me.
I honestly do want to learn this, so I hope you all can understand that I do not mean to try to be the typical student trying to find an easy way out and it is for this reason I am explaining myself in this post. I have had sites in the past shun me and throw me aside because they think I just copied my assignment and pasted it for someone else to do for me. THIS IS NOT WHAT I AM DOING!
Thank you all and I look forward to receiving your help!
I'm Lloyd from London. I'm not a programming but I really want to learn all about html which until now I'm still confused.
I have a website on which I just put a large table with an index at the top. I can get from the index to the beginning of a specific initial alphabetic character in the "author" column of the table but not to a specific author name. I cannot see any difference in the coding between the link/anchor pairs that work and the ones that do not.
I cannot figure out what keywords to use to find info about internal links. The first thing I saw on this site was a statement by an expert who says he refuses to help people debug.
I worked on mainframe computers from 1967 to 1999 and am retired now and play with my own website. This is the first time I am completely baffled about how to fix a problem.
My name is Margie, on here as "Auntie M". I have a simple question about why some of my internal links work and some do not although I believe the code is identical. I wrote a much longer description and it seemed to have posted but I tried to edit it and now I cannot find it. (In the course of editing I went to my own website to pick up a fact and this website disappeared.) I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out how and where to post this message.
go to http://pittsburghusedbooks.com/BOOKLISTJtoO%20stripped.html for more information and some pages from the .html
At the top where you have the author's name link like this
<a href = "#authorname">Author Name</a>
When someone clicks on that link you will jump to the ID in the body
. . .
<a id="author name"></a>
I think you can leave the id anchor empty, I usually do.
If you look at the first bunch under J, the J link itself works, but not the others. Now look at the markup.
I have retired a year ago after working with Oracle for 20 years.
Now I will do my own home page (at least try).
My name is Vicki. I just joined this forum and I believe this will help me in doing website.
Hi, I'm Daniel from England. I am 10 and I got into coding by reading a book about the internet which made me want to be one of the 'boffins' that make webpages. Now your probaly going to tell me that I shouldn't be here but I want help with html and css.
Anyone, young and old, can get help here with web related questions.

My name is Michael Trio. I am new member of the community and i like to say hello to all members.
I'm thinking of learning html to further my career - 53 yr old made unemployed and limited job prospects for me as an as yet non-national here in St. Kitts, West Indies. Perhaps employment not limited by geographical boundaries is the way to go!
But for now, I just joined the site because I have a job application coming up, and I thought it might impress them to point out that their site is displaying the html message
Warning: Illegal string offset 'id' in /home/emhschoo/public_html/view/wp-content/themes/edupress/sidebar.php on line 4
I was wondering - could anyone on this forum please explain or suggest why this is showing up on their page (ie, what did the creator of the website do wrong). This would also be a bit of a beginners html lesson for me! The link to the page mentioned is http://emhschool.org/view/
Thanks in advance for any insights on this
Best regards, p-coder
It isn't an HTML error. It's a PHP error. I don't think anyone can get very much more out of it this side of the server, but repost in the server side forum and let's see.
how can easily better understand html basic for insert meta?

G'Day, all! Just thought I'd do the polite thing and introduce myself. I'm not really a website genius, but I know that a spend a lot more time on those with attractive visuals. I'm just in the process of starting a new venture... quitting the rat race and opening a b&b... I'll be taking on the task of designing the website myself and really looking forward to learning all the tricks from the masters.
Hope Monday is treating all of you well!
Hello my name is djfloopstt and I am from Trinidad. I wanted to get exposure from my talent so I decided to host a website. It is heavily optimized and is probably the fastest dj website in the world. I did all my optimization and now I am learning code because it has taken a hold of me. I am hoping to code my own website soon. Check out my website and let me know if you have suggestions.
