    I concur because I know basically nothing about Web Programming. I know how to design websites, but nothing really about programming the computer or software. So I do hope we start at the very beginning.:-)

    What do you mean by "start at the very beginning". Please elaborate.

    I have few Ideas, but I need to make things beneficial for everyone. Please give your suggestions about what you think best on how should we build syllabus.

    I am not sure how to build it, but I think we need to avoid the mistake of assuming that the user (student) knows how to do anything. Most of the little bit that I do know is self taught, and I have run into many deadends, material that did things like use a compiler but skip how over how to install and use it. I am thinking about how you want this to be work for users in areas where they may have no library or anything to fall back on.

    I don't know much, but I can put in work on this, it is a very human thing to do in my opinion.

    Very well questioned. I want make you sure that definitely i will avoid every possible hassle for everybody, who desires to learn web - programming.

    The best thing in web programming is that you don't need a compiler.

    The basic requirement is to have a browser installed on the PC. That's it.

    Other things will follow automatically.

    Details will be made clear, once we made decision about syllabus.

    Can you tell me where you got stuck. Where you find the deadend and in which languages (if possible, please give details of your experience). So that such thing can be avoided to happen.

    I would get lost at the MSDN learnig place on Visual Studio topics, they have videos that start so basic and than the next on seems to skip a few months of something.

    I took Visual Basic at a Community College, digital photgraphy and html stuff. I am currently enrolled in this class at peer to peer.

    and it is going well. We all use a free blog, I wish they were all the same (Wordpress, Tumbler, Joobla, they are all good but is a class some are hard to subscribe to unless you use that brand's blog.) We also use two other tools, Dropbox, which is free secure file sharing to view our work (the blogs try to interperit html rather than show it, you have to copy the code to paint and make a jpeg of it to insert the code as a picture in a free blog) and we have a Google group also for posting questions.

    I hope I can be of help.
