This is just a really quick guide to get you up and running, because I know just how busy everyone is this time of year. I wanted to make sure that even if you don't have time to go through all of the tutorials (as I know I don't have time to even watch my own videos) that you could still install the site and try it out on your own terms.

What I've Learned

This has been a wonderful project for me to work on. Not only have my skills advanced technically, because knowing and teaching and are completely different things, but I've also realized the importance of scheduling your time to meet important deadlines.

This whole tutorial series has also been a great refresher on using Dreamweaver's built-in PHP functions and wizards. Creating a login system from scratch is something I don't have very much experience in, but I'm glad I took on the challenge. I also have developed a new respect for video tutorial authors. It's much more difficult to build and narrate web development simultaneously than I had originally thought. I've never been known for my multi-tasking abilities, but I could feel myself improving as the videos progressed. Finally, I've been studying JavaScript and jQuery for only a few months, but I'm glad I found a few places where I could put them to good use. Interactivity is becoming a necessity so I felt it was a key feature to provide even though I hadn't had any classes specifically covering it. I hope everyone enjoys these videos, and I hope everyone learns at least one thing from each video. Once again, if you have any questions hit me up at LearnNerd.com , or if you just wanted to come by and say hello.
