All you have to do is create a free account on Oracle's website and you can use just about all of their software for free, as long as it's for learning/non-commercial purposes. Guide can be found here: https://docs.oracle.com/database/122/ADMQS/toc.htm
QA can be a great place to start in IT. Your experience will depend on your agency's structure - some QA departments are siloed and literally only deal with the same kind of stuff every day, whereas others will offer you a more diversified work load. It's an excellent job if you want to go down the Analyst path more so than the programming/hardware ones.

One thing about QA, many orgs and eventually most orgs are looking to automate as much as possible and anything that cant be automated they outsource.

I was going to buy a few courses while they were cheap.
post #2442 of 2640
For those that cooked on the $10 Udemy deal, I just got an email from them saying I can cop another course for $19. Check your emails.

Yeah Udemy is a place that offers online courses. Some courses have certifications upon completion as well. For the new year they were offering all courses for $10. That deal expired and now they're offering some courses for $15.

A friend and I just started developing websites for some local business. Do you guys have any suggestion as far as handling contracts and maintenance contracts to the client? 

 

we have been charging $70 per hour

post #2454 of 2640

I found much easier to learn HTML5 and CSS3 on youtube. There's some good tutorials to get you started and get you to a very efficient point where you can make some extra cash from it.

post #2455 of 2640

Most people do a set price, then charge monthly for maintenance .

 

Ex: $500 for the site , $50/mo for maintenance .

post #2456 of 2640

General website building is hardly as lucrative as it used to be. With all these template/wordpress type solutions, your clientele is mostly folk who don't know a damn about tech.

I agree, it's extremely easy to build and host a site now for only $30/mo. With great themes too.

Don't underestimate how computer illiterate folks are. People will pay you just to use those build a site places like wix because it's all a foreign language to them.

I was just about to make thread about this topic of contracts and suggestions on how to charge people. I've been making sites but mostly family or friends with a set price but no contracts but I definitely need to know about the contracts and things. Ive been searching the net with no answer or atleast no clear one. Also with the hosting, do you hnag on to all of that info or do you have to fork it over?
