    Hello people,
    I'm 16 studying in informatics, actually I'm in stage and I have to develop a website in any language I decide (usually, because of the sad knowledge, we make websites in html & css), my teacher is a little out of the actuality, he doesn't even use css and he does the layout's using tables..., We've got a discussion because of this and I think he hate's me heheh,

    I don't care about the rate I'll have in the stage, I want to make a spectacular fantastic, innovator website, I dispose of 1 year and a half, but I don't know what kind of language should I learn or use, I want something impressive and I'll be learning it without stop.

    Thanks for the attention, could anyone give me some tips of what should I learn to make a good website for the cause?

    After HTML, and CSS the best language to learn next would be jQuery http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JQuery

    Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks.
    But of course, if you dig deeper, itís really how it works.

    Here's what you do, Daniel...take something you like and know something about, or something that you have a unique perspective on and that has a potential unique audience. For example, if you're a green belt with a brown stripe in karate, you might build a site on karate, the various schools, the disciplines, and other information someone who's interested in karate might want to know.

    Once you have your idea, work toward it.

    Why do it this way? Because the technologies you'll need to use (the HTML, the CSS, any server-side languages) will be a lot less abstract and you'll be a lot better able to apply them to what you're doing. Because it's something you're interested in, you'll be a lot more likely to build the awesome site you want and thus be able to tell your teacher to shove it up his ***.

    He's doing this as a school project - why would you suggest he learn PHP for the OpenSource CMS with the steepest learning curve?

    If he starts young he'll be ahead of the game. There is no reason to shy away from the language because of the learning curve; besides his teacher should understand this and reward him accordingly because of the extra effort he is making.

    You`d be right if there were no time limit on school projects. And in order to reward the extra effort, the teacher would have to understand it - and that`s not likely.

    Game has the best answer for this person - working on something you`re enthusiastic about will almost always lead to a better result than working on something just for the sake of getting it done.

    Yeah, because teachers are all about forward, independent thinkers and would do absolutely nothing to stand in the way of someone attempting to better him/herself.

    I have no idea what schools you've attended, but a teacher that will actually let a student learn on his/her own and encourage it is a very rare breed. It's not unheard of, but the vast majority of teachers are all about "stick to the curriculum, the board of education knows all, do not question, do not speak out, do not buck the system."

    If this teacher is already trying to cram tabular layouts down the students' throats, chances are a guy showing off a PHP site is going to meet some resistance. That's why I suggested to build based on interest...by building based on interest, the knowledge learned will have been applied, and thus would be much more difficult for the teacher to argue with (building a site in PHP/Drupal "just because" means applied knowledge isn't demonstrated). It wouldn't be impossible, and the teacher could always subject the OP to some form of a punitive penalty, but it would be much more difficult.
