Chapter 01 - An Introduction
Hello, and welcome to my website! This url will serve as my repository for the various course assignments.
I am still relatively new to web design as a whole, and while I have taken an assortment of MOOC classes, this is only my second college proctured course in web development.
I am interested in web dev (and by extension this course) for a few reasons:
- I would like to go to grad school, and I am hoping that being able to showcase my personal website along with an in demand skillset will strengthen my application.
- While I don't do any web design in my current job, I would love to have the ability to keep my options open and to potentially use this skillset in the future!
- Lastly, I think it is just a fun thing to know! Having the knowledge to build and contribute to something you interact with on a daily basis is very rewarding.
So while my current development knowledge is rudimentary at best, I am hoping that this class will help me take that know-how to the next level! While I enjoy constantly learning new things, knowing myself I really need the structure and deadline based orientation of a college course to help keep me on track and force me to practice.
Here's to a great semester!
