This web design series covers learning how to create a website from the perspective of the technology professional.
Over the course of this web design series we will cover how to implement and maintain hypertext-based websites using authoring and scripting languages, use web management tools and digital media tools, and apply human factor principles to design.
If you are a small business owner or manager, check out our companion site Smart Technology Info as we target business professionals or managers as we try to separate the tasks and tools of technology in the section on how to make a website for small business success.
Site designer skills are a combination of minimal technical and non-technical skills required by a website designer that are not product or system specific. While we will discuss various software packages, and use available software to illustrate concepts, the focus is the understanding of the concepts and issues rather than any particular software.
Over the years I have been active in the webmaster community online, as well as teaching numerous webmaster classes at three different community colleges. Questy's Webmaster's Portal, formerly at Questy.com, was used as outline for students to review material covered in the classes that I taught. Many of the pages have been edited down to small articles presented here.
Each topic on the site is presented in a concise stand alone article that you can choose to read as you find the time. The pages in this sectin form a collection of topics from start to finish that cover a more broader scopr of learning how to create a website and web design tools from a technical perspective. When you are reading a page look at the menu along the right side bar to see other pages on similar topics.
