My experience in this class so far has been enlightening. I knew a little bit about HTML prior to this course, but this semester has opened my eyes to countless possibilities. My favorite project so far was assignment 2 when we implied CSS into our web pages. Although I could have done more with my assignment, I feel like I was able to make the website feel like my own.
I think the most important thing that I have learned thus far is making a responsive webpage. Prior to this course I hadn’t considered the limitations that each platform has. I was under the impression that all sites were created equal and would respond the same no matter if it were on a big television screen or a mobile phone. Clearly I was silly to think that. How dare I? Because of this there is a bunch of extra code you have to put into a webpage as if there wasn’t enough to begin with. On the bright side, it could be as simple as a copy and paste. Most people have already done the work for you, it’s all just a matter of how you apply it (web design in a nutshell I think).
If it interests you, have a look at my assignment 1. I promise it will disappoint you because it was my least favorite assignment. Why you ask? Because I couldn’t do what I wanted with it. There are too many limitations in HTML.
