My Current Work:
I run the website that keeps the staff and students of Mount Si High School updated on school news.
That Web site can be found here.
This site has let me practice my skills with routine site management including daily blog updates video uploading and archiving and paying attention to site visitors and page views. Running this site has required me to teach other people how to do other things for the site. For instance, the video creation, uploading and embedding is all done by Kelby Kilburn while I archive the videos and check his work. After that I go on to do just about everything else.
Xury's Blender Tutorials
This site is the home of a set of tutorials for a free 3D editor called Blender and it can be found here.
Though it is currently incomplete it has been the first site I have truly designed for someone else. This is also the first time I've worked with Xury Greer, a very talented Video Creator. This site, as well as working with Xury has taught me how to build a site for someone and shown me several things about web designing. One of the biggest things I've noticed is the creative license one has in building a site, even when the person you're building the site for has a specific view. There is great importance is things that seem small, like the placement of objects, or even the simple changes in the margins color. As of now this site is rather bare, having a standard style sheet from Weebly to hold the site right now, but it won't take too much to really make this site look good.
PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor
"PHP" is a coding language used with servers to process information put into it and output it in an intelligible way.
The website containing my current PHP works is here.
I also have a page on this site for my work in PHP here.
This is the third programing language I've learned and despite the fact that what I've learned so far is rather unnecessary it is showing me that coding is actually fun to do. What makes it interesting to me is how I'll eventually use these simple functions to do very complex things, much like one does with math or a language.
Weebly is the editor that I use to make websites without just coding it by hand so I don't have to repeatedly type every style of every paragraph and build a site in a timely way.
Their website can be found here.
Weebly makes things like Wildcat TV possible as I can have other People do minor things like uploading videos for me so I have time to work on the rest of the site, as well as other things entirely. Despite how helpful Weebly is, there will always need to be a web developer at the helm, even if the creative design is done by someone else, there still needs to be someone to put it into HTML. It shows me that there is still a need for web developers to not only build sites, but guide those who don't actually know how to build a site.
