After taking this class I have a newfound respect for web developers, their knowledge, and patience. After spending countless hours this semester whether it be on Codecademy, W3Schools, or coder blogs, I have only skimmed the surface. The thing with coding and really any technology-related material, it is always being modified or multiplying in functionality.
With that being said, I really feel like to move forward in coding, I should revisit the basics. My plan would be to go back and redo the Codecademy tutorials. During the class, I have class on Thursday nights and then coached on the weekends so on Saturday and sunday nights I would be cramming to make sure I would complete the modules on time to send in. By doing so, I think I rushed my brain and it wasn’t able to fully digest the information being thrown it’s way. Now I did learn a lot, don’t get me wrong. But throughout my final project I would have to go back through Codecademy and re-do some of the modules to remember the right steps to take on certain coding elements.
After taking my time and fully redoing my Codecademy models, I would love to keep my website that I created for my final project updated and add more design elements to it. I think that coding is a skill that is hard to come by especially in the PR industry, and I would love to showcase what I know while creating access to my digital portfolio.
Other than that, I might look into another Codecademy-type of online learning, however- realistically, I will probably stick to Codecademy.
Thanks again for a challenging but educational semester.
