Getting Real Serious About Web Design

As I stated in some earlier posts. When I got into cryptocurrency trading I put everything on hold including this business. For the most part, I’ve lived crypto 24/7. I learned a lot and made a few friends along the way.

When I got back into web design I realized immediately that a lot has changed in the code. HTML5 features a lot of new tags, and I could definitely use a refresher course in CSS3. Over the last couple weeks I’ve signed up for several code boot camps focused around HTML5 and CSS3. Because most of these courses all have the same general content flow I do them all simultaneously. I’m currently signed up for I think 4 different boot camps.  In a lot of ways, learning code is all about repetition. The more you get your feet wet and do it, the more you’ll retain. At least, that’s how it has always worked for me.

I finished the shortest course last night. It was an introduction to HTML on CodeAcademy.

Introduction To HTML – CodeAcademy

CodeAcademy doesn’t give you a certificate so I took a screen shot.

HTML first to be added to my completed skills.

I was a little apprehensive about taking an Introduction to HTML. I’ve been using this markup language since the mid 90’s. I was really happy I took it though, a lot has changed since then. The course covered a lot of the new features in HTML5 and I realized how dated some of the markup I was using was.,

I think I’m going to get involved in the 100 Days Of Code challenge. It’s a challenge to code at least a half hour a day and learn something new everyday for 100 days.  I’d like to finish that before summer arrives 🙂

Next up… Another refresher course in CSS!

Well if anyone needs a website, now is the time to contact me. I’m working cheap right now, but that’s going to change soon. I brought on a local real estate developer, and I should be finished up with that in the next week or so then I’m free to take on new projects.
