About the Designer/Developer
Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
– excerpt from Tennyson’s Ulysses
A brief background
I started working with HTML way back in my sixth grade year, which was about ten years ago for me at this point. I kept seeing all of these cool designs and I wanted to get in on it and I found a quick and simple, basic crash course in HTML and started teaching myself how to code. CSS came a little bit later and it didn't come quite as easily (or rather, hardly at all) until I'd looked up how to do it so many times that it finally clicked.
Then one day I was introduced to something called PHP and I thought, "Okay, if I can teach myself HTML and CSS, I can teach myself this." However, despite being told that it wasn't difficult, I looked at PHP and tried to learn it, but it quickly apparent that this was out of my league at that time. Flash foward eight years and turns out PHP wasn't so bad after all.
A few things I know . . .
Well aside from the obvious HTML/CSS/PHP knowledge, I do know a couple other tricks:
- C (also very rusty)
A few things I don't know but wish I did . . .
The following are just other languages I wish I could learn, as I've already taken Spanish and French and am currently taking Japanese:
- Chinese or Korean
