    hi there, new here, advice please?

    Hello everybody!

    First of all; great site, happy to have stumbled upon it!
    Introduction of me; I'm a pretty fresh webdesigner (dutch but living in France); I learned my basic html, css, flash and some actionscript 3.0 skills. (I allready had my PS and Illustrator skills) So I've started working to create a portfolio (basically a lot of charity stuff for friends and family and non-profit orgs) BUT also some paying clients (Yes, miracles happen!)
    I like to work in DW or Flash to create my sites but offcourse nowadays everybody is asking for a site which they can update themselves (ie put new images and/or texts) and so now I'm wondering, should I invest more time in learning PHP or try out CMS?? I never had anything to do with either.
    So all you geniuses out there, what would you recommend??? (considering my tual clients are no computer whizzkids at all)

    A lot of the CMS apps out there can become much more powerful when you know some PHP. I would recommend starting to bring up those PHP (or ASP, or Ruby, or some other programming language) skills and then applying them to a CMS.

    I suggest to go with wrox books. They are easy to understand and digest...
