My first web design course was in 1999. Later I learned HTML by practicing it during work assignments. Since then I keep learning the latest trends on the web. I worked as webmaster for many companies. And I did many home pages from scratch for my clients through my own company. I do the design and all the functions needed. I'm not a programer, but I always find a way to fix problems to get the homepage to work well.
I also did a webshop to one of my clients with a need to sell his products to different countries in Europe using payment modules.
Some of the content management system and programs that I used: Joomla, Wordpress, OpenCart (webshop), Dreamweaver, DotNetNuke and Artisteer.
Here are just a few exemples.
