    I'm starting to learn CSS/PHP/MySQL as part of my degree and need to make some money for christmas, so am thinking about taking on some jobs at DigitalPoint and getafreelancer etc.

    Basically all I can do right now is create a simple dynamic site:

    Update/delete/alter records via a webform with PHP.
    Database nomalised to 3rd normal form.
    PHP userlogin/email registration/contactus form.
    ie: the basics.

    I dont use DreamWeaver, it's all done in Notepadd++, so it's clean code, content rich for the search engines, but never 'marketed' myself before, so I'm a little nervous about agreeing to a job, and then having trouble and not delivering.

    What should I be looking at charging for this?

    $50 USD too much?

    I'm not looking for work, just advice.

    Thanks! :bigthumb:

    No links I'm afraid, the sites aren't on a public available server at present, but I think I'll move them, people will ask I expect.. Thread has helped already.

    And they don't suck BTW

    Thanks burn__ for the info.

    just because you use Notepad++ to code doesn't mean your code is clean.

    Normalization to that degree is damn near pointless these days. :greddy:
