Programming
Hi. I started to learn computer languages. As I learn, I start to mess around with the codes and I would get good results. I don't know if it is my crazy way of programming or it is already there in the programming field that I have not found yet. And the quizzes or the projects I have done work on most browsers. But when I refer to Webmatrix it shows me some errors. My question is: If my coding work on most browsers, will my way of coding affect my career in the future? As in, will the company accept it or does it have to be the professional way?

    That depends on company to company. But you did not cleared here either you are working or not. If yes, what profile you have. probably webmatrix is obsolete now and asp.net is in the market. So why you are not using asp.net for coding.

    A lot depends on the company. Some may be looking for those outside the box to write their code. Other companies may want you  to code to their standards, this way anyone in the company can work/edit your code. Do you have any practical experience with a company to put on a resume?  Another stopping point may be a lack of a degree or certification to show you have taken courses in the subject. That to can depend on the company. Some may figure if you have a degree you want big dollars to work, on the other hand if you have the skills but no degree they may offer you less money.

    Thank you for your answers I appreciate the fast responses.
    Actually I don't have any degrees or certifications. I started to learn coding in March and I picked up fast. So far I learned html, js and css. I still don't want to apply for any company until I know so much of coding ( I still need to learn PHP and MySQL). The reason why I asked is because I like to make quizzes and some interactive files for my site, both using javascript or flash. And I realized there are some errors on my coding but it is not affecting the browsers. For example: instead of using <p> on parts of the file I use <text> so I can have some words in the quiz to be next to each other. Webmatrix gave me an error for <text> but not for <p>, and like I said, most browsers had no problem showing the code I did. Another example would be copy and paste the same code using a different function name with different variables. In other words my coding looks long yet simple lol. So I hope that would be no issue with coding so far.

    Generally, browsers have parser that can be used to track errors of web pages. But almost all browsers can show pages with errors and showing a yellow symbol at the bottom of the page. Do a link here for it helps you: http://taligarsiel.com/Projects/howbrowserswork1.htm

    What version of HTML are you coding? HTML5 is the up coming version that should replace flash.

    Subhendu yes I noticed that when I was editing my code at Weebly.com, which I am aware of, and thanks for the link.
    Todd This is what I noticed, but I am still far from HTML5, and I decided that I give up actionscript and learn th HTML5 instead. I know HTML, JS, CSS will not create a good flash-like game until I learn the other coding languages. So I am focusing on PHP and MySQL before I jump to anything else. I hope I am doing the right moves so far.
