No design specific training but my degree was in Business Information Training so that’s more software development, end user support, UI etc.
I also have had that issue of outdated technology being used – FrontPage or any WYSIWYG web editor doesn’t really teach you the nuts and bolts, I wish people wouldn’t flood the web with their own creations that look horrendous lol.
I’m 17, decided to learn html when involved with creating a community site when i was 14, simply improved from there through trial and error. The only thing I could improve on is design, and jquery, but tbh, there are so many resources out there, I’ll soon, just like html and css, learn through determination, and find myself with a better knowledge than any course would give me.
And hey, I’m going to uni to study mechanical engineering, not anything to do with web design =P
