Design Company

I am an eighteen year comp sci student. Me and my friends would like to start a web design company. I would like to know what skills in web designing will we require I have almost 10 months free so I have time to learn them. Also will we need some sort of finance?Also what are the procedures needed to open a web designing company. Today I found out that… This is really going to depend on your preferred clientele, and before you decide what you want to do, you should know a bit about the business you’re looking to go into. I was a professional web-developer, and have since stopped, and returned to school to pursue a degree in actual programming. The reason for this is evidenced on rent-a-coder, guru, scriptlance and basically ALL your online freelancing websites. The vast majority of the work will go to the lowest bidder who can put out the most time. Due to lopsided wage expectations, if you want to make $20 an hour, and someone in India who learned html last week will do it for $1 an hour, they’ll probably get the contract. Quality be damned. With that said: If you want to pander to individuals, small businesses (non-web-store type stuff), and small organizations (churches, local clubs, etc. ) You should look into the following languages: Xhtml, Php, MySql (innodb), and css3. If your goal is to do BIG jobs, jobs that range in the low five figures to the high 6 figures, you’ll need a LOT more learning, but if you treat it like a full time job and spend 50-70 hours a week for the next 10 months you might be able to pull it off. . Look into the following (This will help you for big businesses, web stores, catalogs, and everything from college websites to making your own website): Php, asp. Net, python, (XML, Xhtml — These are probably the most important) css3 (web 2. 0 look, ick), Javascript (ick, but DHTML is getting to be a pretty big thing), java, (Work well with) Amazon S3, INTIMATE understanding of how various forms of databases work, interrelate / are secured. You’ll also have to become VERY aware of W3C’s cross-browser compliance documents and have a keen understanding of how to manipulate your code to conform to these accessibility standards. Also: Look into an accounting 1 course. The book I presently have is a little on the pricey side. . Teach yourself chapter 1-6, skipping over 5 is you want (You should know the Sarbanes Oxley stuff from school anyways), here’s the book I used: 978-1-111-20379-5 (ISBN-13, search it on bigwords or Amazon) The other procedures you’ll need to get your name out there. Tell people, hand out flyers. Charge good money, but deliver an exceptional quality product. The simple fact of the matter is that if you have a product, you should charge what it’s worth. Some things you should note: “I have an idea for a company, this company will provide XXXX product or service. I just need someone to code it; we’ll make millions. If you code it, I’ll give you x% of the money we earn” The answer to this is always, no. “I want you to change (minor detail of the program here) to (most minor change in color that isn’t even discernable by the human eye) for me” The answer to this is “Sure, but you only get to make 3 changes after our design specs have been finalized. The oatmeal did a comic about just this: Other pointers: Never do free work, always charge half up front, always estimate it will take you 2-3 weeks longer than you think it will take, if it’s a big (high 5, low 6 figure) job give yourself an extra 1-2 months to complete / test / secure this.
