Why am I taking Intro to Web Dev? Because the world is being taken over by the internet and I want to get off the sidelines. I see the Matrix and I want to have some control!

For the last decade, I have had many jobs in tech, including being a marketing manager at a search engine optimization firm, working as a freelance digital producer and now as a Director of Digital Production for a social voting based development/agency shop (a bit confusing, but what tech jobs aren’t these days).

Being a Digital Producer working on multiple multi-million dollar projects, training for triathlons and trying to raise two kids (who are as crazy as I was) restricts my time and ability to enjoy any extra curricular teachings. But when I saw Brianstation and the quality classes they provide, I had to join.

Through my prior experience in tech I have already learned the basics of HTML and CSS, but BrainStation is going to take me to the next level. When Neo plugged in and learned kung fu, he didn’t REALLY know kung fu until Morpheus showed him the way. The kung fu I am excited to learn is the highflying kicks of JQuery, CSS, HTML and Bootstrap.

I have big plans for a business and need to build a site to help launch a brand and native app. I can change elements around, get feedback, test and build all while learning in a fast paced environment. This new site and main project over the next 10 weeks will be my playground. This site will be my Matrix. And I think we all know by now that BrainStation…. BrainStation is my Morpheus. Gimme that Red Pill BrainStation, I am ready for the rabbit hole!
