Technically, I’d say my journey really started when I was about 8; but this starts my official journey into a more official software/system development position.
To start this off, I’m delving into web development as part of a college course I’m taking at DeVry. I’ll admit, my experience with HTML has been limited to very simple “Hello World” pages or those used to format online knowledge articles beyond the basic text editors. Based on my first weeks worth of school work, I’m jumping straight in by setting up a four page website for the first lab; and setting up a proposal for a website of my choice for the course project.
Don’t have anything at the moment for the lab. I have at least reviewed what is needed. Diagram and build a four page website that includes a home, education, work experience, and portfolio pages about myself. I’ve already roughly planned out what I want in each page. Now I just need to create a diagram of the site in Visio and then build it.
Next up, I need to write-up a proposal for my course project website. Still need to determine what I want my page to be about. Mulling around a few ideas that I’ll need to finalize with enough time to put together the proposal.
