When I was 10 years old, the Internet seemed to me something mysterious. But in the age of 13 I started to learn how to create my own websites. I learned it in the Internet and with teachers in school , and later with professors. Eventually I gathered a tremendous amount of information and experience on the subject and felt that it is necessary to find wider application. So I put together a small team , and together we have created a short course for beginning web designers. I hope you appreciate our work - then we will have an incentive to share our knowledge more and more!

Good luck!
