It Design & Development

Recommended Posts

Do you think it is worth learning web design and development or will I just be competing with third world countries? My reason for looking into it is I'm after something I could do on the side as it were. Thoughts?

PS Hope my post doesn't belittle those in the industry I'm not saying I could pick it up in a week just don't know much about it :)

How long is a piece of string?

And, to make that relevant, what do you see as web design and development?

Any fool can knock up a few pages. Takes a modicum of nouse to do it right, but most of the world won't notice. Off-the-shelf components can extend that to a fair degree of interactivity: for example, you'd want basic skills to deploy the HPC forum software, but it ain't rocket science and a job responsible for all aspects of it might be one of the £15k efforts our "boom boom" used to keep indignantly posting.

Once you get into more complex systems it becomes a professional job: not just anyone could have brought us google, nor would you want to hire a monkey to implement your online banking (though Icesave did).
