001_hello_world: Where do I start?

“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.” 
 J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings


The secret of getting ahead is getting started. — Mark Twain

Picture this,

You are an incredible web designer and developer. The largest tech companies of the ages want to hire you. And with your well earned know-how, you can create any website you can imagine.

Or maybe you want to create your own path.

You want to build the next facebook, wordpress, reddit, or youtube. Or maybe just an incredibly elegant blog for your own voice.

'Impossible. I can't do that.'

wrong answer, my friend.


You can.

You are capable.

With the right teaching, anyone can learn to code. (even yo mamma).

Coding is like learning to speak.

It might sound like gibber gabber now, but once you learn the ABC's you'll be on your way —>


There's a lot of resources and information out there (good and bad).

The biggest problem I face when I'm learning a new topic is where to start?

Where do I start my journey towards becoming a web master?

You start with small steps, and build and build until all of those small action combine into a big change.

This is my quest for the web mastery course.

Luckily, I won't be making all of this up as I go. (all though that would be interesting) I'll be compiling the best research and lessons from all across the web, so you won't have to and can focus on what's important.

Welcome to FOUNDATIONS, are you ready to begin?

AS: Find your why.

Q: Why do you wan't to learn coding and web design? What do you want to do with your new skills?

!! Knowing why will give you strength and determination when things get difficult.
