sitting with james
- I don't teach basic html/css/php. You can learn that yourself on the Web (see below) and from other people here.
- I don't do "classes". We call it "practical". Or "workshop" — ཟབ་སྦྱོང་།.
- I'm a very bad teacher ... but maybe a good explainer.
- I can do coaching on how to learn html/css, PHP programming, WordPress site development, and more.
Before you sit with me ...
- You know how to search the Web to find information.
- You already know HTML and CSS basics.
- You have done tutorials on html/css and on php at CodeCademy.com and W3Schools.com. Other tutorial sites or YouTube tutorials are good too. You can find more on the GeekRoom html/css resources page, or search the Web.
- You have experimented and made some web pages, even if only for yourself.
- Before we meet the first time, you email or bring me a little "website" of 3 pages
- subject of website is something interesting to you: gaming, football, programming, anything. Your interest.
- same design on all pages, a nav menu that links them together, CSS in a separate stylesheet file, a few images and background images.
- (Don't make more than 3 pages.
Don't think to impress me with fancy design. I'm not a designer. I will be looking at your code! :)
- If you want to learn WordPress (as an author, a publisher, or a developer) you also have an account at WordPress.com, and have made at least a small website there.
Here are some resources we work from
- web development
- php basics
- linux at the command line
- wordpress in བོད་ཡིག། — or any language!
And you can go to the great websites listed on the resources page, and learn everything by yourself!

Everything i do is open code, open source, and any part of it may be shared with people studying with me. That's why i do it.
