In this video I talk about my thoughts on whether you should go to school or learn web design on your own.

    Thanks Mike. You seem very knowledgeable and kind. I have kids too and I don’t want to waste any time learning no essential stuff. I think I will be signing up for your class soon. Thanks again.

    oops.. I meant “non” essential.

    I am 44 years old and want to make a change. I have been familiar with PCs since the Apple IIe in 1983.

    Recently, I was tasked with creating an intranet site for my company.

    I found that I really like this and am wanting to make a change from Mechanical Design/Quality Control to web development.

    Do you think there is still time to make a change, or is web design and IT in general a “young man’s game”?

    Thanks Mike, I couldn’t agree with you more. Thanks for another great video post

    @Jeff – I don’t think age matters. What matters though is that you make sure to focus on the latest and newest technology, services and websites….most of which are run and used by the younger folks. If you stay aware of the latest design trends, you can be any age. As long as you remain hip to whats going on and what coming, you’ll be ok.
