Building a Site
Im learning etc..
But when it comes to building facebook/treehouse site like, do you think its better to use a framewokr like laraver or bootstrap to instead of handcode everything?
And if you were to make one, how would you do it? The technology i will use now is PHP, some jQuery/JS and probably bootstrap as well as WordPress to gain more security and so its easier. But it will be a facebook/treehouse like site.
I used to be a big fan of frameworks, etc.. But since I've had some courses here at Treehouse I would handcode as much as I can. It will give your site a more unique feeling. Spend a lot of time in choosing a color palette. Wireframe the page you're currently working on. And ask yourself: For what reason do I create this site?
Let's say you want people to join your community and give them the ability to communicate to each other in several ways. So you probably want to spend time on developing a chat, pretty profile pages and a good appearance at all. And don't forget to make your site responsive for mobile devices!
That are just a few tips I could give you. Spend time on thinking about your project, plan as much as you can and promote your site. Plannig will ease your workflow A LOT ;)
Good luck! ~Julius
