Learn how to become a web developer


Hi, I’m Stephen Young

Welcome to Aesthetic IO where you will learn how to become a web developer. Knowing how to build web apps involves more than just coding.

On this site I take a step back and look at the whole picture. I look at everything you need to know to become a web developer.

I have been working as a programmer, architect and manager for the last 12 years. I spent most of my career building web apps both in the startup world and in the enterprise.For the last few years I have spent a lot of time training the developers in the organisations where I work. With this site I hope to pass on some of what I learnt along the way.

On this site you will learn things like:
