It’s been a long while since I wrote here.  I’ve been spending most of my time traveling cross country (See my riveting journey on Instagram, #toiletsacrossamerica) and upping my web-development skills so that I can continue my tech-nomad lifestyle.  My nephew recently asked me to help him build a website for his growing CNC/3D-printing business… actually I think he asked to hire me to build one for him.

 

I considered doing it for free (nice guy I am, but he’d learn nothing), then considered partnering with him (not quite as nice, but practical), and then teaching him using Skype and screen sharing.  I also thought of referring him to a bunch of resources I thought were valuable – web sites, YouTube tutorials, etc – which seemed a little impersonal.  Somehow, I settled on making some YouTube videos of my own.  This turned into quite a project, but it was one I decided to share with the world.

 

I can’t say these are simply “so you wanna build a website” videos, as they do get a bit more detailed into the background of what makes a website, but they also don’t hammer you down into being a coder.  So if you are interested in learning how to become a web developer, my wonderfully-crafted YouTube videos would be a good place to start.

 

And of course, if these videos inspire you to hire me to build a site for you or to teach you one-on-one, just email me at jim@jfwebdev.com.
