    Confused Beginner Web Developer (Questions About Stuff)

    Hello everybody i am new here. Probably i am going to be quite active member from now on . Sorry i am not native english speaker.

    Well i have three questions (for now) for web development gurus.

    First i let you know about my knowledge. I know html5, css3, javascript (and jquery), php, mysql, wordpress. Problem is i dont have a lot of experience. I didnt have a real big and serious project yet so here are questions.

    1. I would like to make web portfolio for a friend. I would like him to have a blog on a website. I was thinking not to use wordpress or other any other cms because they are restriced design wise and i would like to have better working knowledge of writing code and designing. But i would like him to have a blog on a site that he could update. He doesnt know code ofcourse. So should i code custom CMS for him? Just for text images and stuff. Is this common practice? What are other practices are for this problem?

    2. I would like to make ecommerce site for my family business. What do you recommend should i code it myself as a begginer. Again i would like to be better at using code. Now i have all rules in my head but i am not confortable to make things with it and that could be excellent exercise. Or should i just use frameworks for ecommerce. I am kinda against that stuff for now and that leads to my third question.

    3. I know that now in a world of web exists a lot of pre written code, frameworks just waiting to put them together in five minutes. But as a begginer dont you think is better to for at least first projects to write most of the code myself. Even if i am doing some of them with tutorials. I would really like to learn code. Not only web languages but aleast one for software(java, c#, c++ and so on). I am not doing this just for the money i am hungry for knowledge and a lot of times this lead me to doing things "the hard and long way" (sounds like title for porno ).

    What is you advice to me dear gurus .

    Thank you very very much.

    1. You can custom design the site and add a self hosted CMS to it so your friend can modify things using unify http://unify.unitinteractive.com/index.php
    If you ever just want to add a blog to a site try this: http://simpleblogphp.com/index.php

    2. If you have the skill and or determination try coding it yourself otherwise try something like shopify

    3. Sounds like you like code; I say go for it! Who knows maybe you'll be the next Zuckerberg.
