This year, after realising how woefully light my skill set is, I decided to invest in myself a little and learn some new stuff.
To start with, I thought I'd give learning how to code a shot.
I signed up for a course on Learning HTML through OneMonth.com after I got a special offer on the price through AppSumo.com - a website I HIGHLY recommend.
Now I've never been that great with computers, so I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy this course. But as it turns out, I really did! I actually enjoy learning HTML, who would have guessed? It's like learning a new language, but this time it's actually useful (unlike all those stupid French classes I had to sit through in school...).
It took me a little longer than a month, but I actually finished the HTML course. That's kind of a big deal for me, I have a history of poor follow through on projects I start.
Am I now an expert web developer, about to launch my website coding skills loose on the internet? - No...but I do know the basics of building and publishing websites now while NOT using something as easy as Weebly, like I do for this site. In fact, I'm going to try some customisation of this blog soon by editing the HTML and CSS, which is something that Weebly provides for it's users, but I've never tried because it was all gibberish to me before!
Anyhoo, check out the cool Certificate I got from One Month...go me!!
This coding stuff is fun! I found a book series called Head Start, and they have titles for HTML, App Development, Wordpress, and a bunch of others. I'm going to keep going with the HTML for now and see what else I can learn.
I'll post more project sites here as I go.
My name is Ryan, and this is my blog.
