What advice would you give students who are pursuing careers in web development?

Tomorrow I begin teaching the following 4 classes (80 students in total) at Clark College:

  • HTML Fundamentals (2 of these)
  • JavaScript
  • Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving (Python)

My question to you is what advice would you give these students regarding pursuing a career in web development and/or programming?

Thanks in advance for your comments.

Remove HTML from Excel Files

Occasionally I will have an Excel file that contains HTML markup that I need to remove. The Excel Replace feature makes removing HTML easy. To remove the HTML tags highlight the cells that contain the HTML and then select Edit > Replace. In the “Find what” field enter <*>. Leave the “Replace with” field blank and then click on the “Replace All” button. Poof! All of your HTML will magically be removed.
