Me and a friend will be doing website building together. How can we make the concept that Fox explains, work with 2 people?

We can build sites separately, but maybe there will be some friction because the one makes more money for the company than the other (we already have a venture together).

A possible solution would be that we split every project: one makes the websites himselves and the other does the copywriting. However, I'm doubting about this. Workload is not equal for example and our ideas about the site may be contradictory. Maybe it's better for one to do the whole thing himselve.

Any advice anyone?

Hi @Fox, hi everyone

Excuse me for asking something that's probably been asked a zillion times, but with books on coding, and with my lack of knowledge about them, I'm just unsure at this moment whether I'll be reading something new or something slightly dated, so I ask this again, just to be sure - and maybe some other newbe can also benefit from the zillionst aswer here.

What is, right NOW, the best book on HTML? And what is the best one on CSS? I've already switched from codemy to codecademy which is an improvement for me personally (systematicly written explanations and lots of practice, much more digestible than just quick videos), so THANK YOU for that advice, but now, with the full exercises that I'm wanting to make, I feel the need to also have something on paper besides that. As a reference. To quickly look things up that I've forgotten about, for instance. (And to F* read more, Andy from Hard Challenge)

Thanks a lot in advance!

I've found this to be the best HTML book: HTML and CSS: Design and Build Websites: Jon Duckett: 8601200464207: Amazon.com: Books. Html is rather easy and the skills can be acquired in a day or two, but learning css in conjunction is always a good idea, and this book is absolutely beautiful and easy to follow. You can save a bit of money and buy this combo which includes the book I mentioned as well as an additional book on Javascript, which is, in my opinion, the next logical progression after HTML and CSS in terms of learning web development: Web Design with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery Set: Jon Duckett: 8601419903887: Amazon.com: Books.

Thanks @tigerbalm !! I had in fact doubts about this one, because it's not 100% up to date, but thanks to your reference I looked at it again, and read some more reviews reflecting back what you said: it's really well written and layouted. For me, at this stage, the didactic approach is the most important. I suppose I'll soon be able to distinct the old from the new anyway. And I'll always have an online course to compare with. The combo is indeed a good deal. But darn it, it comes with high costs for shipping to Belgium, so I finally got it from the Dutch bol.com for 50 EUR. Still a good deal. Delivered tomorrow. I'm enjoying a week of leave, I'll know what to do. Thanks again :)

Now I've a good book to start with immediately, leaving me with no more excuses, but other suggestions of good books are of course still very welcome here.

The book @tigerbalm linked to is the only book on coding I ever bought. And it spent most of its time under my monitor to boost the height ha (but it is a good book).

I think it is best to use online resources as they should be the most up to date possible. I learned most of what know from Udemy, google, youtube and courses.

If I may ask: what kind of monitor do you use? I only have a macbook pro at this moment; I'm looking for a more practical way to manage different documents & online sources at the same time.

EDIT: especially: would there be certain requirements with webbuilding in mind?

It looks like it's going to be one of my main ways to raise money for the business. I've taken some steps along the learning, edited the code, approached the local businessman and showed them the index.html lol. He was shocked and now wants to buy it from me. This definitely has a need in my place. Going to implement all the golden nuggets from this thread, finish the courses to know my shit and then take bigger steps. Thank you @Fox and all.

It'll be great to hear things from you about how do you upload the web sites on the internet. I found it of course, but just curious to know how do you do this? Are you still setting up godaddy account for the clients?
