  • Abu Mohd
    Abu Mohd Bahrain Thanks a lot for Chris Farrell. In fact I have spent long time and last year with extensive reading books, articles…..etc. After all that I gained some knowledge but a lot of frustration. At end I realized that learning website development need practical type of learning step by step creating a website (no matter what the subject is to start with temporarily) through which you will also learn theoretical backgrounds related to what you are working with. It seems most teachers who published such text books focused on theoretical bases in cost of practical aspects and website designers who have such practical experience don’t have time to put their work in comprehensive book if not few scattered articles. And if you come cross with such publication you may find the knowledge out of updated technology. If you to try to learn how to create a website by a website builder from a hosting company (it looks practical and may be free) but usually you can’t proceed before prescription. Having done that you will find the free period (say 45 days) given for you is not enough to learn and then you have to pay, until a time reach before you realize that how to resolve plenty of mistakes and how to get red from big frustration you have created for yourself. (that happened to me!). By chance to come cross with Alison site and this Chris Farrell course and I have finished all lectures making notes as well with a pen and note book in few days despite my narrow time and found how the matter is so far easy like learning (PowerPoint for example. Mr. Chris Farrell used the correct way of teaching this subject in particular, starting with practical attitude, providing necessary software programs and explaining few related theoretical bases. Thanks a lot to him. 2017-01-01 12:01:44
