My First Public Site Goes Live!

About 2 years ago I promised a close friend of mine that I would build the website for his lodge which was still in construction at the time. Back then, the only thing I knew about web development was basic HTML and some basic Flash animation. So basically, I was plunging myself into the deep end... and I like a challenge!

To cut a long story short, 2 years and 3 web site designs later, today the website went live! I have learned a lot and I'm sure there is still a lot to learn. The website is currently only in Romanian, as I still have to translate the English section. [EDIT 06/10/2008: The English section is now done.] For those of you interested in the design, please do check it out. I am open to comments, criticisms and advice.

Geeky stuff aside, the lodge is a wonderful place situated in the serene valley of the Aries river. It really is the ideal place to get away from it all. For those of you in or around Romania, you really should check it out!

Use this tool and you will learn much faster.

Always make sure your code validates & despite what people will say there is normally away of achieving what you want with clean valid code.

Oh yeah, if you are new and learning don't waste too much time on the older standards. Learn to do things in XHTML & CSS straight up. Its easier in the end, far more flexible, you learn better habits etc etc...
