Class expectations

I’m very excited about this class, and the prospect of beginning my education in HTML and CSS. In my heart I believe that technology is the future of the American work force. There was an interesting piece on 60 minutes this past weekend about technology leveling the playing field for US companies, and how robots are quickly becoming our labor force. I really think that a deep understanding of how computers, websites, and the internet work, will be a valuable leg up on the competition in the year 2013 and beyond.

Here’s a link to the 60 minutes piece.


Web design and development experience.


Web design and development are a new field for me. I’ve been a computer nerd for most of my life, but I’ve never really crossed over into the computer programming or webdesign fields. I’ve run and moderated on vBulletin style web forums before, (which I believe would give me some informal experience in HTML) but that’s basically the extent of my experience with a programming language.
