Started codeacademy HTML/CSS course. At that time, I found websites to be cool and interesting, and was informed that it was easy to pick up. I also wanted to be part of the website group of the robotics team. (didn’t happen)
After doing codeacademy tutorials, which at least got me familiar with the syntax, I remember using w3schools.com as a reference.
Expressed interest in developing a website for my home church. Got some instructions on how to do something simple, but didn’t follow through as I realized I didn’t know what I was doing. I might have checked out how to use Dreamweaver for the first time during this period. w3schools.com was still a good reference – I remember going through the entire HTML section of the site.
Did some extremely basic HTML and CSS to edit the OrgSync club page of Computer Animation Club. Applied to be webmaster for the marching band, only to realize that I wasn’t proficient at web technology yet after they said no.
Resolved to make a personal website, being motivated by the fact that someone asked to link to my website and I had to say I didn’t have one. I also wanted a url to put on my resume.
Learned HTML and CSS to a mostly-proficient level, saw the first version of my website to completion, working on the second. I can now proudly say I was able to accomplish at least this summer goal of learning how to website.
