I’ve always wondered how a website was created. During this semester I have grasped a better understanding of how even the smallest thing such as the color of a background has a specific code. My favorite thing so far has been seeing my personal website develop. Although it is still a work in progress I am proud to show people that everything on my site was coded and created by myself. It has provided a platform to work off of and in the future build into a professional site where I would be able to show my event planning clients as well as talent agencies my prior work. In the age of the internet I know having more digital presence is important.
My least favorite assignment so far has been the troubleshooting assessment. Although I coded my website from scratch and made it work, it was hard to go the other way around. Picking out the small details of error, such as a misspelling, was not easy for me. I hope that in future assignments like these I will be able to breakdown the issues.
Finally, the most important thing I’ve learned in this class is how vital having coding skills is. The article about AT&T needing to retrain thousands of workers because of the fast pace of digital technology struck a cord with me. I am not looking at a career in coding or web design, but I will now know basics when speaking to people in that field.
