Who here is good at coding? I am thinking of starting a dating website, but I know nothing of coding. Would anyone like to help me out?

To create a website with the complexity necessary to compete with the myriad of existing, successful dating sites you would need an extensive knowledge of both front-end and back-end coding (asp.net and c# for example), as well as excellent graphic design skills and expert database management.
As a mug programmer, I can assure you that these are skills that take years to develop. If you are serious in your endeavour, you have two options:
You could consider outsourcing your idea to a specialised company, fronting all the costs and hoping that your investment is not for naught.
Alternatively, you could learn the skills on the vast number of free training websites and create the website yourself, as no-one in their right mind would develop it for you for free. I suggest starting with http://www.codecademy.com...
Of course, even if you develop the website yourself, you would still need to host the website somewhere. This in itself requires a complex set of skills as well as a substantial amount of money.

Hope this helps.

When you are "coding" please get technical terms right. Use 'program' and not code.
Website making is more graphical content and scripting content than programming
(e.g; JS,PHP,Html)

And at second poster... No you can learn the basic outline within a time interval of weeks. It does depends on dedication. Its like asking 'how long is a piece of string?'

actually coding is the more widely used word and is well understood by the people who do "coding"

But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

I have been programming for several years now and when i first started, i didn't know what i had to do with a bunch of client and servers i received.
I asked on programming forums like "can you help me code my protocols?"
"how do I code clipping in my files?" "No do you even code? No first understand what a boolean is first"
And programmers who are familiar in the field actually get really intolerable when i say "code" and not program.
sure its understandable, just not appropiate
so basically its like slang.
I am just saying because programmers find that irritating (not me)
but its a good habit to have.

because its formal. No great programmer says "i am a really good coder, i do alot of coding in my spare time."
and also maybe because you don't program and it doesn't concern you

Sure, someone with a logical mind could probably learn some basic coding in a few weeks. How does that contradict what I said?

He clearly doesn't know. He's a blank slate.
I don't know the details of what precisely he wants he site to do, but to have even a remote chance of working it's going to need a dozen different features, most of which are moderate to advanced in complexity.

You'll most likely want to learn PHP, MySql, ja<x>vascript and HTML/CSS.

But there are a lot of dating sites out there. You would have to have a compelling idea that no one has thought of to make coding it worthwhile. Software takes an incredible investment in time.

There's that weird bug 000Ike was talking about. It's even weirder because I actualy capatalized "ja<x>vascript"

Hosting a website hardly requires a complex set of skills, or substantial amounts of money.

Running an apache web server is a skill that you can teach yourself, to a workable degree, in a few hours. That's assuming you don't have prior experience with similar things.

And you won't need a lot of money unless you have crap tons of traffic, or a shitty Internet service provider.

Running an apache web server is easy. The problem is fending off perpetual hacker attacks Hackers look for any web server with an opening, then use it to pump spam. Fighting off hackers is a full time job requiring special expertise. Just pay for hosting by a large company and let their staff do it. Paying for hosting is not too expensive unless you have a lot of traffic, in which case you could probably afford it.

Programming the web site to make a debating site, as opposed to hosting it, is a different story. As several people in the thread have said, it is way beyond what an amateur can do. A whole lot of professional training is required. Moreover, if you learn it all, the knowledge then has a half-life of about two years. It takes a full time career effort to stay current.

I think "programmers" and "coders" are pretty much interchangeable, but "programmer" is slightly more polite. Most polite is "software engineer." It doesn't hurt to be polite.

Cloudflare is free for the average user, and relatively cheap for commercial use. It essentially prevents the possibility of a hacker breaking in to your server. It's quite the handy tool for website hosts. It isn't perfect, but it's good enough for the average person.

Just pay for hosting by a large company and let their staff do it. Paying for hosting is not too expensive unless you have a lot of traffic, in which case you could probably afford it.

Agreed, to an extent. Personally, I'd rather just pay someone else to host my website. But that's because I wouldn't be bothered to host it my self. But doing so is still viable.

Again, agreed.

So what you're saying is that he can learn to host a crappy site that won't support lots of traffic in a few hours... Useful!

To create a website with the complexity necessary to compete with the myriad of existing, successful dating sites you would need an extensive knowledge of both front-end and back-end coding (asp.net and c# for example), as well as excellent graphic design skills and expert database management.
As a mug programmer, I can assure you that these are skills that take years to develop. If you are serious in your endeavour, you have two options:
You could consider outsourcing your idea to a specialised company, fronting all the costs and hoping that your investment is not for naught.
Alternatively, you could learn the skills on the vast number of free training websites and create the website yourself, as no-one in their right mind would develop it for you for free. I suggest starting with http://www.codecademy.com...
Of course, even if you develop the website yourself, you would still need to host the website somewhere. This in itself requires a complex set of skills as well as a substantial amount of money.

Hope this helps.

Hosting a website hardly requires a complex set of skills, or substantial amounts of money.

Running an apache web server is a skill that you can teach yourself, to a workable degree, in a few hours. That's assuming you don't have prior experience with similar things.

And you won't need a lot of money unless you have crap tons of traffic, or a shitty Internet service provider.

So what you're saying is that he can learn to host a crappy site that won't support lots of traffic in a few hours... Useful!

Incorrect. He can learn to host and support an average website in a free hours, with a low amount of money.

Hello, Its no big deal if you want to start a web site and you are no good at coding. Why dont you start a blog at Wordpress or Blogspot. They are great, you dont need to be an HTML expert to operate them and you can play around a lot on it as well. I am a graphic designer and I have made websites over there as well. For any problems check them out and see if they work for you. The links are below:

I realize this is a late reply but I figured I would throw you a bone... I am a pioneer in web development. I am at the top of my profession in software development, with specific focus in web tier architecture and design. I have literally done it all so to speak. I am fluent more than a dozen languages, have worked for fortune 100/500 companies for almost twenty years and have been a public speaker at a variety of developer conferences in both the US and Europe and I have been published. In short, I have forgotten more about web development than most kids know these days.

I know I sound cocky, but I assure you, in this industry, I have the medal to back it up.

If you still need help, I can point you in the right direction.

I'd be more than willing if you are still wanting to do this.

Sure man if you want to fill me in out details of where you want to go with this, you can pm me or post it here its up to you. Fair warning if you want your own domain name and hosting it could cost you a little money though I know some cheap hosting companies.
