CMS Vs DIY Roll Your Own!
The down side of using a CMS is that you are limited in many ways to what you can do. That is why businesses are willing to pay Coders to make them a custom WebSite. Learning the details of Coding the right way, from the start, will give you a wonderful finished WebSite and perhaps a good job too!
Tools of the Trade
You will likely need to add 2-3 software packages to your computer. It is not hard to do this, just follow the directions. These are standard packages, very safe, and used by hundreds of thousands of people all over the world.
However, before you can become an effective DIY Coder you will need a few things. Most of these are free and can be downloaded from the Internet. I have posted a Tools of the Trades List for you to follow and check off!
OKAY – GO!
