Bi-Weekly Learning Update (3!)

Even this blog post is a bit late! Unfortunately I’ve been pretty ill for the past two weeks with the worst cold I’ve had in a while [for the first couple days I was having a lot of trouble focusing my eyes and reading… It was grim!]

I’m starting to feel a bit better now, so I’ve been thinking about courses and how I want to continue learning. One of the things I’ve been wanting to do is take an evening course [in addition to learning via the Odin Project.] I haven’t had a lot of luck finding web development evening courses, but a few of the local colleges run web design courses, which I’m very tempted to take. I think at the very least it might be a good way to make some contacts and work on a portfolio. Previously I’ve taken evening courses for fun [life drawing, mostly], but I’m already sold on the idea of taking one that I’ll treat a bit more seriously.

I’d love to hear from anyone who’s taken an evening course while not working in the industry!

  1. Go for it! In my experience, they tend to be pretty basic courses, but are a good jumping off point. Id it’s called “web design” you might want to check whether they’re using Dreamweaver, depending on if you want to do Dreamweaver.

    • Dreamweaver has appeared on most of the course summaries I’ve been looking at, and I think it might be good to get some experience with it (I’ve never used it before, but it sounds like it’s popular.) I think I’d actually like a course that is more basic, that way I can make sure I’ve got a really good foundation. Also, at least a couple of the colleges have more than two levels, so I would take the beginner course and then look at progressing to the next level after that.
