Diverse Things to Learn
The beginning stage of my involvement with CeBA’s projects was related to Scandia amusement park’s web page (web page design from scratch using HTML and CSS programming languages). However, the project fell through and we had to continue our independent learning on other assignments or tasks.
Learning process was very diverse. We started from the definition of HTML to the creation of tables and web sites. We learned how to design the web page and how to check for failures. Moreover, our independent learning that was facilitated and supervised by Jason Baddley, was not limited only to HTML and CSS coding but rather expanded to new technologies and all sorts tools and skills for technical manipulations. Meanwhile working on web page creation, we were even creating our own images through Photoshop editing and color styling through Adobe Kuler.
Like I said during my part of the final presentation, for CeBA’s sake I would suggest a set of programming prerequisites for students who want to be involved with the Center. However, from my own experience, I am grateful that I had the chance to participate in CeBA and learn so much more than the people who joined with at least a minimum base of knowledge to invest. I consider myself to be the luckiest participant in CeBA’s first semester since even though my investment in the Center’s projects was scarce but considering the goal of the Center (to prepare student to immediately step into highly competitive careers based on the knowledge and real life experience gained with CeBA), I believe I had my investment in its achievement.
