Hi everyone! I graduated from an eight-week program that I just finished recently, where I learned HTML/CSS and launched my first website. It was an incredible learning experience and I'm so glad that I pulled through all of the beginner frustrations and designed something that I'm proud of.
How I built it: I learned HTML/CSS online through free resources such as freecodecamp, Yandex Education Web Dev, and Youtube. I designed the site first on Figma and then developed it using Atom. I'm hosting it on GitHub Pages and I linked it to a custom domain. My full process, including my motivations for creating the site, is located on my website. :)
The eight weeks I spent designing & developing the website have been incredible, but also incredibly exhausting! My brain still has been thinking about things to fix on the website all day, and I can't wait until my time frees up again to revisit my site's code and hit "commit."
