Take Advantage of Today's Business Standard

By Martin Schaeferle | October 25, 2012


It is imperative that a business has an online presence in order for it to succeed. The ability to search for a business, service, or product online, is taken for granted now. It is so prevalent, that if a business does not have a web presence, it is assumed that they are somehow not legitimate or "real". This has drastically increased the importance of people with web design and programming knowledge. The ability to design an attractive, interactive online presence for a company is a skill that can reap great rewards.

If you feel like you are aesthetically savvy enough to design an attractive, functional site, but do not have the technical know-how, an online course can help you get started. An HTML5 tutorial, and an MVC 3 tutorial, can help you become familiar with the programming necessary to create great websites, as well as the ability to create applications for use in the sites you build. If you are considering a career change, or just want to add to your computer-related skills, web design is a smart, and potentially lucrative, addition to anyone's resume.
