The first major assignment within our program occurs after the first month of regular lessons. Students are given a week to fully mock up and build a functional small-scale HTML and CSS based website. This assignment is geared to simulate a workplace environment with strict deadlines, and more realistic expectations.
The students are currently hard at work finalizing their websites for the presentations they will be delivering later today. I can already see some great work in development, and am excited to see the final results later on today.
Shortly after lunch we will begin our presentations, each student is to deliver a short presentation to simulate a client pitch. Given that this is the first website that many of the students have ever built, it is an exciting time for everyone, and an excellent accelerated-learning experience.
