Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

    You can also go the route. If you're not a coder, and are happy using pre-made themes (templates), then this may be a faster route for you, as long as you don't want to customize it too much. - Good luck!

    There are three Web Publishing courses at Cabrillo College that are fabulous. The first one is taken alone, and you can take the second two courses simultaneously. I strongly suggest signing up for Teacher John as your instructor, if you go this route. These classes give you the basics and a little more. It's like learning plumbing, auto mechanics, or any other skill. It takes time to learn, and then more time to refine your skill and do it well.

    How long do you think it would take me to learn a better way of publishing. My son can help me some but I need something more dependable.
