  • @ta8877 Treehouse allowed me to learn html in 4 days(not kidding). It may be a little different for you, but it is the best place, and the html video guide is free too!

  • Great episodes. Love to watch. Can someone PLEASE help redesign Go Daddy’s horrific logo? It’s hard to take the show seriously when that ugly logo is flashing in the background. (wink)

    Jose, love the hat. Go with Naughty. Tony, you are brilliant and you sound a little like Seth Godin for sign off concepts. Love that plaid shirt.

  • @ta8877 From someone who started as a self-taught developer(later attended university for web design/development), w3 schools is a great place to start basic html. As far as software, notepad or a basic text editor is the best way to learn. It forces you to learn the code rather than using the software to handle the changes. Aptana/Eclipse are both great free editors that work on any OS. If you have any questions feel free to ask me. Design software, adobe is king.

  • @ta8877 As for hosting, I would use a service rather than hosting your own. You would need to invest in a business class internet connection with a static IP address. Normal high-speed internet connections are 5-7 mbps(MBits per Second) download and 700Kbps up. While that would be OK for a small low traffic site, as your site grows you would start to see bottle necks. T1 lines are roughly $400 a month here which at 1.5 Mbps up and down. Message me if you have any questions about this.

  • Keep up the good work guys. I love watching the show. Never can watch it live due to scheduling conflicts, but I still catch it every week. Wish there was something like groop school out my way. Would love to attend. Happy Holidays!

  • Will someone please buy Jacob an iron for Xmas, then teach him how to use it? (chuckles)

  • Great ep…! I would love to learn more about Agile and Scrum from a personal stand point. If Tony is selling or The Groop Skool is selling I’m in…Also I would like to see the finished product of the site so please do more sprints.

  • LOL. Come on! It’s not that bad. ; ) I don’t think people look at the logo on the homepage.
