Just thinking about attending a CSS class.
Why don't you check out some of the free ones online?

I'm guessing that for most people, it's easier to learn and focus in a class setting.

Well i guess to at least see if they like programming, it may be a good place to start. rather than drop money on a class.

I assume that he has learned some programming before. CSS is never the first thing you learn.

I am trying to help out a non-profit with some programming. Unfortunately, (almost) everything IT related I have experience with...except programming (only on a very basic (pun intended) level)...

Anyone with any basic/moderate experience want to pm me, so I can pick your brain?  (not html, css, etc...more like sql, perl, etc)

I'd rather not post too many details...but something like this...

the program will read incoming emails, generate a sequential three digit number, then email that number  and the received email to another address.

I have some experience with SQL but not with perl. However, I bet you could do all that with Outlook and VBA.

all emails? Or only those from a particular sender? Or containing certain text?
Either way you can set up a rule to filter for the emails you want and run a script on them that'll generate the number and fwd it

additionally sequential numbering can't be done in code alone. You'll need a place to store the current number count. Either by adding a registry setting or by using a simple text file.

Will the code be running on only one machine? If it'll be on multiple machines are they networked?
Also you say a 3 digit number so what happens after all numbers are used up?

not sure what that is. Will they have access to a shared directory?
Are they in the same time zone?
Where do you want the 3 digit number? In the subject?
