access to the Internet, a sophomore in early 1997, and the class a like-minded students set up a "web design enthusiasts Association" are already familiar with and then basically use the HTML code to write the website, we also have ChinaRen home. At that time in order to make a personal homepage, can stay in the cafe all through the night, remember that Alibaba and Baidu have never heard of. But soon graduated from University, we also have our own work, that there was a job is a very happy thing, also put their own website to give away. I think if I kept on doing that, my website might be a little bit famous now:)
later, after a few years’ work, he started his own business in 2002, when his performance was basically stable. Don’t know what happened on the Internet, the bones of the love and confused I made a new website, remember the domain name 2svip, named 2S China business center, mainly to do all kinds of business opportunities issued a free information network. At that time, Alexa did about 500000, and had fixed members, and remembered the membership fee of more than 1000 yuan. Unfortunately, the website loopholes, good times don’t last long, a lot of junk information with my website, and a lot of information that is not true, I do this with the principle of contrary! I consulted a lot of friends, and ultimately did not completely solve the problem, if we want to solve, I stand a lot of functions to limit. Look at the garbage everywhere, he was on the ASP language and not very familiar with, and finally reluctantly made a decision to refund all the membership fee, completely shut down the site, to learn asp language, to have to wear a wood,
when I studied my ASP language and started my own business, it was the end of 2009. Business is a little better, and ASP learns a certain depth (at least, it can completely solve the spam messages that came before, without restricting many functions). When I am in the best of spirits ready to use ASP to write your own favorite website, found useless, why? Because there are a lot of new language,.Net, JSP, PHP, and the language is the current mainstream language website. How do? I asked myself, began to learn.Net, JSP, PHP? I in accordance with the efficiency of learning ASP, from 2002 to 2009, for 7 years, when I study for 7 years after the emergence of what new language? I should continue to learn, so I’ll never do not own net station? Life and has many 7 years?
: can I ask myself as a warning for the future, there is no other way? I think with someone else’s program, the Internet now everywhere selling procedures, and even free source code is everywhere. I’m not interested in free code because these programs have a lot of bugs and do not provide upgrade services. So I chose a genuine PHP program, which was defined as "joining the investment" and "free publication of information" (similar to my 2svip)
