Considering that many teens are spending so much of their free time on the Web, careers in fields such as Web design seem like a natural progression for many of them. By creating a relationship between a teen's initial interest in computers and the development of a career, this book shows what teens need to know to create Web pages, a company's Web page, and what education is needed to become a Web designer. The future of technology is also discussed so teens will have the most up-to-date information about this growing field.
