I'm considering a career change into web development and I'm hoping AskMe can help me sort through the abundance of relevant information and get a sense of what reasonable expectations might be. To put it succinctly, I'd like to make about $75-80k a year so that I can support my parents while still being able to save money for my own future. Is it probable for a self-taught developer to earn a salary in this range? [more inside]

My small team is hiring a developer and a designer to build a website. What is the best way for us to communicate the features that the website needs to have? It is a medium-complexity website - more than a blog, less than Facebook. [more inside]

I've been working as an IT Guy and part-time web development guru on and off for close to 8 years. I'm looking to take the plunge, and become a full-time web developer, but have virtually nothing in my "portfolio" from those 8 years to show for it. Help! [more inside]

Always desiring to experience living in Japan, I moved in the country from Canada almost a year ago on a working holiday visa, which will expire next month. My life here is stable so far, including a job at a company willing to sponsor me for a work visa. I want to live in Japan for a longer period, but the problem is I don't seem to meet the requirements for a visa. I am aware that getting married is the easiest way, but unfortunately, I do not have that possibility.
Is there anything I can do to stay and work in Japan longer? [more inside]

Some people at my work are asking for "web development" training. We are a nonprofit that gives away computers, and a part of their job is to understand basic software capabilities, to tell grantees about it. (The grantees are schools and non-profits.) The people I work with are not trainers, they just need to be more informed than the basic user. If you were going to teach web development basics to an audience of former junior high teachers and fundraisers, where would you start?

I'm a small-time, part-time web developer that typically does point-of-contact sites for very small businesses thrilled to have a web presence. I've never done e-commerce, but now have a client who's got the need.
What sort of inexpensive shopping cart do you recommend? Any advice? [More inside.
