My friend and I are starting a business based around a site.
I code PHP and have basic CSS skills.
I won't have time to do everything. (Backend and Frontend). My friend is already very good with graphic design, so I've asked him to learn HTML/CSS so I can just focus on coding the core functionality DB and backend. He has agreed.
Now what course (or course of action) should I recommend he take to jump in?
Or just start hacking?
Its different for me, cos I'm a programmer already. When I want to learn a new language I just start hacking.
He has no coding experience.
From a business planning perspective, we've agreed we might have to pay someone to start on the frontend work initially. But I figure the sooner he gets going learning it the better. Startups have gotta keep their costs low.
