Q&A

Q1:I know an ASP programmer who will help me with my web pages. What do I need to tell her about my web pages so she can write a script to process them on the server?
A1: She needs to know what you have called the items in your form and how you want them processed. If she is sending the data to a database, she needs to know what you call the items in your form so she can parse the data into the correct place. She also needs to know if you need any validation or processing applied to the data. For instance, you might need to have individual prices added together as one total price.
Q2:Should I learn Perl, ASP, ASP.NET, PHP, JSP, or CFML?
A2: It depends on what you want to do when you grow up! Do you have a knack for coding? If so, having skills in any of these technologies might be fun and look great on your résumé. Find out what technologies people at work are using. If you learn those technologies, your colleagues might be a good support system for your learning endeavor.

If you aren't very interested in coding but want to expand your web skill set, maybe it's a better idea to specialize in Dreamweaver—there's a lot to learn! On the other hand, you can always learn more about databases. If you don't really enjoy coding, it can be a real chore. Dreamweaver offers objects and server behaviors that make it much easier than before to code dynamic web pages.
