    I am fourty something and have started retraining in web design, largely in the hope of working from home as I have a disabled son.
    I am studying HTML5 and Dreamweaver and am seeking advice from the more experienced amongst you.
    Firstly, is home working a realistic aim for a new starter (or anyone?) and secondly how would you recommend I start working in the field as an older new starter?

    Honestly, I think there's more opportunity in development (web programming) than design. If you want to work from home and find people to work with, you'll probably have more luck learning something like PHP, ASP.net, maybe even Ruby on Rails.

    Yes, working from home is a realistic aim. I do it.
