A Warm Hello From Costa Rica!

I was really glad to find this forum as I am beginning my journey into self-taught web development in earnest this month. My name is Aaron, and I am an American expatriate living in Central Costa Rica. I have been in the IT industry since 1995, and I have done just about everything from hardware repairs to level two support for POS systems (my current 9-5). Since 2006, I have been working remotely from my home office at various freelance and long term technical contracts. Being that I am just outside a huge tract of untouched rain forest, the emphasis is very much on the word 'remotely'.

 

I have played a bit with Dreamweaver, and consider myself somewhat competent in basic design. But I really want my knowledge base to increase in regards to this important aspect of our beloved Digital Age. I can probably make a cheesy site for pet owners or a .gif inundated My Little Pony fanboy site, but I really want to be able to make my mark on the internet in a way that will last. So I have loaded up on Lynda.com tutorials and this illustrious forum to help me on my way.

 

I hope no one sighs to much inwardly at the questions I will be throwing out, one of the drawbacks of being self-taught is that alot of the times basic things are missed. In any case, I look forward to a great exchange of knowledge and maybe even some new friends in the process!

Welcome to the board!

 

Yes when self-taught you can overlook basic things. That's why if I'm new to something I ask A LOT of question :)
