A big shout out to Don’t Fear the Internet, a great resource for those without a developer’s eye.
The site is designed for all those creative minds who can sketch a great graphic but aren’t so familiar with the ins and outs of the web. Don’t Fear the Internet is aimed at those people – by they photography, artist, writer, or print designer – who need a website to promote and showcase their work but don’t really understand how to update their pages and are sick of the ‘off-the-shelf’’ package they’ve been putting up with for years.
The website gently introduces non-developers to the world of programming. It’s not an in-depth guide – it’s not designed for those who already have a wealth of experience – but rather a basic, minimal guide, perfect for those who don’t really want to learn how to code. The information, including information on WordPress, CSS, and HTML, is presented as short chunks of easily digested technical information alongside short screencasts for those more visually minded.
Don’t Fear the Internet is the brainchild of Jessica Hische and Russ Maschmever, and they’ve promised more screencasts will be available soon. We advise anyone struggling to comprehend the web takes a look.
Thanks for the heads up, Smashing Magazine!
