I'm very mediocre at all of those things. I'm familiar with the fundamentals of OOP programming and to some extent, controller-based websites with PHP.
- Becoming good at web development
So what I'd really like to ask, is whether someone on here has the time/will to guide me towards my goal. I've been thinking about this for some time now. I don't really know any successful web developers in real life, or developers for that matter, so I have no one to model or get inspired by or to ask questions when I feel lost. I feel like that would really get me on track. I hope I don't come off too needy here. What I want to start wih is a litle project I've had in mind for a while now. I want to create a small forum that a group of people would use. The layout I have in mind is fairly simple. My biggest problem is that I need a plan, where to start, where to go from there, and up until I finish the project and launch it. And hopefully someone to nudge me in the right direction when I'm using bad coding practices or someone who can tell me when I need to look something up and what to look up.
If someone would be willing to do this for me, that is, draw up a plan for me to follow in order to complete this successfully, and become a more skilled developer in the process, I'd be very grateful. But what can I, offer you in return? This is where I have no good ideas. I'm a student, and I can't really offer any substantial amount of money, maybe something small, like a video game on steam, a cheap book, or any small donation. Other than that, I can only offer my sincere admiration and gratitude. Unless of course your interest in languages isn't limited to programming languages, then I could attempt to teach you mine. If not, I'm not sure what exactly I have to offer, but perhaps we can think of something, or maybe I'll one day be proficient enough at this (or some other technology) to return the favor in some way.
