I have and idea for a potential website that I've spent a lot of time designing, laying out, and going over. Unfortunately, I have no knowledge of where to begin in starting the site. The site would be a social network, so I know there is quite a bit of complexity involved. I want to stay away from the "cookie cutter" social network builders as well and would rather start from scratch. I have begun to practice and attempt to learn Ruby, but to be honest that is my only coding background. Seeing as how:
- I have no knowledge of coding (and little time to learn)
- The site is rather complex,
Would it be wiser to potentially find someone who was rather adept at coding as a "partner"? Or would it be the better option to spend potentially a year or more learning to code?
To be honest I really don't know where to start from a coding standpoint and would just like some feedback.
