  1. Hello, I am very new to web development and recently got hired at a small enterprise to create a website for them among other tasks like managing their social media and providing technical assistance. I am the only IT person there and I work alone. They also contracted an outside company to create an e-commerce website for them and told me that I will be managing it down the line. So basically they have two websites in the pipeline. Since I never touched web dev after learning it four years ago during university, I decided to not use any front-end or back-end framework and have been grinding my way from scratch, learning as I go. During a meeting with the owner of the enterprise, she mentioned that she would like to move everything online and it would be very good if we could also apply e-commerce to the site I was developing. I agreed, however mentioning that I don't have any expertise in e-commerce and applying security norms that are involved. So we came to a compromise of initially developing the website with not much of a backend and having it up and running before the end of April , this will be mainly used for promotional stuff initially. We then agreed that I would be working towards implementing e-commerce later on (target would be around august). My thought-process, like with the front-end and a couple of simple backends, was also building the e-commerce from scratch and not using any framework. However, I have read multiple threads mentioning that reinventing the wheel is pointless and you should always use frameworks, specially for an e-commerce website. I am now worried, what is the best way forward from here? Considering my lack of experience, that I am working alone and that there's the potential of money being involved. To learn a back-end framework and apply it to the website I built from scratch? Or should I just go with a CMS and create a new website again if the enterprise is still bent of having e-commerce? Since I am on a temporary contract and I was told I can leave anytime if I find better prospects, I am thinking this will be better and easier for someone else in the enterprise to update it too. Any help would be much appreciated, I feel loss.
  2. Hello, I am currently in the process of creating a website for a small enterprise. I made a nav item called "Collections" where it is then divided (when hovered upon) into various categories for the type of products that will be sold (Rings, Bracelets etc). And then Under "Rings" (when selected), multiple items that can be bought are displayed in a gallery form (image + a "<p>click here for more details<p>" just below). When you select an individual item, a new page (target="_blank") will open that will display price/description of said selected item. Since in the future, there will probably be hundreds of items with their price/descriptions, should i make an individual html file for each? is there a way to have 1 html file and a new page opening depending on which item was selected? Or is server side scripting the most efficient way? Thanks.
  3. Quality of life. Yeah after those, i would recommend a keyboard and then maybe down the line, the i5-8600k if you're still on a budget! In my opinion, your upgrade priorities could look this: 1. Desk 2. Monitor 3. Keyboard 4. Boom-arm for Mic 5. CPU
  4. I would still recommend getting the second monitor even though your phone will be enough for chat. A second monitor provides so many QoL improvements nowadays, not just for streaming. I work on my computer a lot and just being able to do so while following a guide on my second monitor is amazing. Alt-tabbing was a pain..
