Or perhaps I should say, "quickly learn some tools because a part of the church website isn't doing what it should and I can't find help" or "I don't want to sound like an idiot when meeting with the web person we got." Or, "I want a hobby and jet aircraft are expensive."
Don't Fear the Internet is a charming series of seven short videos that outline the basics. It's clearly a work in progress (or halted in its tracks) so don't expect to use PHP and you won't need the FTP program mentioned early on. But it describes some things that took me much more effort to learn the first time, and shows how less can be more.Prepare to use skills between each video before starting the next. But even with a bit of noodling, you can get through much or all of it in two hours. And how many learning experiences can you say that of?
