Personally I would advise learning HTML and CSS first before diving into the server-side languages. Secondly I would advise to learn PHP instead of .NET. PHP has a much much larger community and is open source. .NET is very fast and structured, but harder to learn. I think learning .NET online is quite the challenge and you’ll have to buy all the software from Microsoft. After that you should start learning about databases and such. But that’s all relatively easy :)

After you’ve learned the basics, you should just start using it and start working with it. By using it you’ll gain experience and learn the more advanced things over time.

Besides, if you work with PHP you can work on a mac :)

Good luck!!

In addition to all the code involved with a WP theme, I’d also love to learn more about web design. Things like web typography, and how to design complete website’s from scratch. Sure, webdesigntuts+ has some good articles/tutorials, but it doesn’t teach you how to design a website yourself or what makes a design look good. I think this would be a great addition to the tuts+ sites and would definitely pay for something like this.

It’s a nice idea, but not worth the trouble. You’d have to make sure that every version of each of your plugins is compatible with every version of your “tools” plugin. This is a huge amount of work and you’ll wind up wasting a lot of time.

To be honest, I don’t see the problem in copy-pasting functions. It keeps everything nicely organised, especially if you’re writing everything object oriented which I highly recommend.

Congrats on being featured! You deserve it :)

But seriously, people should stop making these kind of threads. If everyone did that, we’d be having 9 threads of these each week, not to mention the threads people make when receiving a new paw. Nothing personal, but IMO this is kind of unfair to the others who’ve worked just as hard but just don’t post it.

Anyways, I hope you have a great week. I remember my sales doubling when I was featured :D

Yeah there are quite a lot of frameworks out there. Last month I searched for one, but I couldn’t find any that had all the features I needed so I decided to build one myself, which I now sell on CodeCanyon :)
Could you provide a link please?

It’s against the forum rules, but just click my profile and look in my portfolio :)
