    College/web design? HELP ME?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Eurlo, May 2, 2011.

    So college comes soon, and I'm interested in web develoment....

    Who has taken this and what is involved? do I have to know web graphic stuff? Let me know what you took!

    Is it different from web design?

    Erm... I'm not much a computer buff, the only program I could say I'm very well versed at is Vista's Word... that's it. But wiki is my friend, so here's what he says

    If you're doing web application development, you don't have to be able to produce the graphics. There are people with artistic talent who do that. For the actual web development, you could start by downloading Microsoft Visual Studio Express and doing some ASP.NET tutorials that are free online. Might give you a feel for whether it is something you will be interested in.

    I would've thought you'd have explored things like html, php etc. coding basically already since you're interested in web development...

    What exactly did you want to do?

    Re: Dev vs Des


    As a Computer Systems Management A.S. heading for a Web Design & Development B.S. this fall I have some of the answers you're looking for.

    I was originally going to hash this out for you myself, but I came across this thread and decided that it has exactly what you need to know. I strongly urge you to read some of the posts.

    Technically you don't have to "know web graphics," but you will study suitable graphic use for the web in either degree, and you will likely study some graphic design in a web design degree. If not, I recommend picking it up on the side, as the ability to design graphics from scratch comes in handy from time to time.
