    Question Hmm... is 11 to young for html?

    Here's my site: http://www.flashisland.tk

    I'm 11. Is that too young to make a site? It's prietty bad. Im ok at html (i started when I was 4), so I decided to start a site from scratch. And that's it. Please be critical of my site.

    Are you looking for a review or?

    I wouldn't say 11 is too young, most young people seem to pick new technologies up better than older people anyway!

    You're coding is a mess though, visit w3schools.com and learn more about using CSS for layout, and how to write 'clean' HTML.

    David,

    For 11 years old, it's good.

    Is 11 too young for HTML? No. Everyone starts learning about things they enjoy at a young age.

    BUT... Might I suggest leaving the computer and playing outside more often than not?

    Friendly advice from an adult who knows these things.

    Chris

    Tell him to play football.. (but if anyone told me to play football I'd tell them where to go )

    Erm...if you're after a site review you're posting in the wrong forum, but 11 isn't too young. I got into web dev when I was 13 - I suggest looking through W3C docs on xhtml and css etc. You might not get it at first, but I'm sure you'll get the general idea of what web accessibility is etc.

    No it's not. 11 is when I got started, or maybe 9-10. Anyways, I'm 15 now and loving it. First thing you should do is get "Designing with Web Standards" by Jeffrey Zeldman. The book is $35, but is worth it's weight in gold. Really, the sooner you get your hands on it, the more you'll be thanking yourself later when you really get into table-free HTML. Cya

    I'm 18 now and I started making sites when I was 10. Now I don't use tables anymore and I only use the latest doctype specifications.

    Your php include does not work.

    Same...all my latest stuff is coded to W3C specs....I got into it when I was 12-13 and admittidly knew nothing, so where I am now is a huge step from where I was two years ago - I like to learn stuff fast.

    Never too young for web development.

    Keep this in mind if you're going to get into building websites though: 11 IS FAR TOO YOUNG FOR COFFEE!

    I do not recommend you going to w3schools to learn about standards, HTML and CSS yes, but not standards. Many of their examples feature a lot of browser specific code which is not part of any of the w3c's standards, which would be fine a few years ago when everyone used IE but not anymore.

    I am currently 15 and I am already on five cups of coffee a day! 11 is a god age however, I started when I was about 10/11, but even after 4 years browsers (IE...) are still able to bring me down to me knees.

    Since this is more of a web site review, I'm going to move this thread to that section...

    As for my two cents... 11 is not too young, however, I do have one thing to comment on... Your site load time for me is atrocious... It takes way to long to load and navigate so if I were one of your regulars, I probably wouldn't be for too long...

    If you can do it and you understand it, then its not too young now is it? I myself started around 13 with webuilders and around 14 got around to HTML now Im 16 and still going.
    So much kudos to you and your site is good for 11 years old, The design is a little "eh" but after you have done it a few times, it starts to come easy
    Keep trucking
