I just learned how to build a Web Scraper in Python

See the course: https://www.udemy.com/course/build-a-web-scraper-with-python/

I’m so happy this happened. I just assumed I wouldn’t really get it, but having a strong basis in HTML and CSS made this course easier.

The tutor was very good in how he explained the code, he presented it in a way that was not chronological but rather experiential. As-in instead of saying you type out this line.. like this.. and so on.. he explained why you need to type the line.

Which made the course intuitive through just explaining logic. It reminded that coding is a conversation, where all questions and answers are made by the same person.

I Launched a New WordPress Support Website

Visit the site : https://wordpressboom.com

After 20 years of building websites I discovered something mind blowing…

Businesses literally wasted hours of their valuable time trying to find information for the simplest of wordpress issues.

When they eventually came to me for help they were surprised that I fixed their problem over the phone sometimes literally without even having a computer in front of me.

Who knows how much money they could have saved if they came to me first !

That’s where WordPress Boom comes in.

I already offer this service for clients I build websites for. But then I realised there must be thousands of people having the same issue but not knowing how to fix it. They’re wasting their time on something that I can fix within minutes.

I keep coming across broken websites with plugin or security issues or even User Experience issues, that I know if it was fixed, it would vastly improve their customers engagement with their business. And in turn show that their brand is something that is reliable instead of a somewhat broken / we’ll fix it later type of “vibe”..

At the time of writing I’m offering a free website report, go visit the new site to read more. https://wordpressboom.com

Free your website from Vendor Locking

Control your own Domain Name & Hosting and migrate your website to an installation that you own and control.

What is this about ?

Some Web Development companies own and control their clients website files, administration access and Domain names.

Some of these companies take advantage of that fact and can charge you whatever fee they wish to update content. Because they are holding all the cards.
These are your assets and the key to your organisations success. If you are “Locked” in this type of supplier situation you can free yourself of this relationship by :

  1. Getting Control of your Domains
  2. Owning Your own Hosting Account
  3. Migrating your site to an open source system

I can help !

I made a Infographic to explain why you need a SSL certificate

Since July 2018, Google began to prioritise website which have an “SSL” cert (Secure Socket Layer)  and to punish website without an SSL cert by adding “ NOT secure. “ to their website address.. 

You may have noticed that beside the address bar there is an info icon, and has the word “Not Secure” – if you have an SSL cert it displays a green padlock and is marked as a secure connection. 
See screen shots attached for your reference. 

An SSL cert basically encrypts the communication between the website and the browser (e.g. Chrome) so that it can protect your website visitors and stop website hacking. 
It has become industry standard protection world wide is is used by all browsers now, google has taken it one step further and now priorities results which have a valid SSL cert. 
Let me know if you would be interested in adding one to your site.
