As the internet grows, so does the need to know how to use it. The every day Joe is starting to be able to do a lot more things online, thanks to plugins and apps. But as we get more average Joe centric, there are programs being built exploiting these services, and once again hurting the average public user. When I set out to learn web development, I was like many others, and watched dozens of tutorials, read many books, and watched many instructional videos. I saw one very distinct consistency between all of the research. No one knew the exact recipe for success when online. It got tough trying to sift through the bad knowledge to find the good knowledge. After many months of trying to learn, I decided to get a little more professional help.
I called a local web development company and asked to get some counseling. That was the best decision I made yet. I found a great group of people who had made this kind of work their livelihood. You know that if an entire company is succeeding in an industry, then they must know what they are doing.
They taught me about the new google algorithms, and new standards for website creation, if you are wanting to make it an authority site. It was a real eye opener. Everything I had watched, read, or listened to prior to meeting these guys, told me about quantity. They never touched on quality. And that is where the web is at today. As I talked about earlier, The big companies out there bombarded the internet if a mass quantity of spam like fake authority. So now, to show your website’s are of worth, you must have quality built into them. I find this to be a very positive change. I want to know that sites I find through something like a google search, are worth the time to look through.
All of this to say, if you are looking to learn good web development, do not waste your time with these online ebooks, and tutorials. Go find yourself someone or someones who have made a living doing the thing you are looking to learn. They obviously know what they are doing.
