I’m new to coding and have been going through the curriculum for the past few weeks. I’m starting to get the hang of HTML and CSS and feel confident enough to design and build basic websites. I’m actually ready to take on my first real-life project and I’m very excited about it.
My uncle has a small Pro Audio business selling professional and home audio equipment, and was always in need of a website. He doesn’t want an online shop yet, just somewhere where he can place his product catalog with some photos and some basic information about his business.
Thinking ahead, once the website is designed, my “client” should be able to make updates himself (adding or removing products, images etc) and not rely on me to do this for him every time he needs to. I know nothing about Wordpress yet, but it seems to be one way to manage the content. What other options do I have? If I build the website from scratch, is there another easy way for a user with very basic (and I mean very basic) skills to manage the content ?
I’m also wondering in general, how many pro web developers actually use Wordpress, and why build a site from scratch when Wordpress makes it so easy seemingly? Is Wordpress something that is covered in the freeCodeCamp curriculum? If not, could someone recommend any good tutorials?
