I’m an accomplished Java, PHP programmer with decades of experience. I wrote games in 6502 assembler for the Apple ][. Wrote games for the Atari 400/800 and the TI-994/a Home Computer.
Yes. I’m that … experienced.
HTML and browsers were never designed to be the seat of our most important distributed applications.
Ok. Now back to reality.
It’s clear that the money … either for a start-up … or a job … is in UX Design.
I need to learn, but hand-coding CSS is a nightmare with all of the differences between browsers and then you throw in “Mobile-First” design, media queries and it’s a lot to swallow.
In comes Webflow … I’m going to be happy here … as soon as I learn to tie my shoes and wipe my nose.
I’m such a NOOB … but of course, I’ve listened in as the designers on project after project have moaned and complained about this browser quirk or that incompatibility.
What I need are mentors … for cheap … perhaps $5 a lesson … laser-focused, questions and answers … with a separate login for my Webflow account so that they can mentor within a particular page, but not destroy my work or perhaps even see my other pages.
That is the making of an ecosystem that will feed itself and learn to wipe it’s own nose.
