Beware of Amateurs

Now I know its easy to pick up and learn the wonders of web programming and design. But I have a word of caution, if you are intetested in being a Web designer or programmer, thats great then go do a course and learn how to do it.

Now here where the internet is fastly becoming a place of badly designed and coded website, its seems now that anybody thinks they can put up their own website. This is not a major problem after all if you want your own site, there are lots of good programs out there to help you do it. But this tends not to stop there too often people are thinking that putting up a site about their hobby turns then into an overnight web master, they then think they can charge others to do their websites. This ends up in a the web being full of bad websites, and people who have great skills and talent being put out of work.

So in short if you have done your own website for your family or your hobby, this doesn't mean you are a professional. If you are keen to work in this field, go and work for an established web company and get some experience and skills behind you.

Ok I may sound like I am just ranting, but I say this is aid the world, not only does this take work from people who shoudl have it, but it also means that people are paying for poor end results. After all most of us drive cars but are we machanics. NO.

So my word of caution is stay away from amateur companies, and if you want to be a web master then take the right route. College is always the place to start any career.
