Contemporary Web Design (Formerly Internet Applications & Web Development) – Durham College


Change does happen almost every day with Internet. Two years ago I was just finishing off my
military career. I was an artillery soldier and I did some
oversea tours. Well right off the bat they show you some
of second-year work. Some of it just blows my mind what some of
these student’s can do. When the Internet first came out I was very
engulfed with it and I was very interested in the Internet and the capabilities of the
Internet and the technologies behind it and so I just wanted to explore more. My family, they knew I was going into something
like this, my friends, yeah, they also thought that. My family and friends obviously they really
love the idea that I’m doing this. I have two daughters and they both think I’m
the coolest dad in the world. The courses that I take are pretty much programming
languages so we’re introduced to PHP and MySQL, and SQL, and Javascript. Some of my favourites I would say would be
the Javascript classes. My work that I do is for people that are interested
in how I made that happen. All of our labs are hands-on training. You learn by doing. For one of our portfolio assignments we were
to create a product, and so I did a digital thermostat that learns as you move it. So that was just something that really made
me feel well, like I’ve achieved something. It’s better to try and then have failed
then to have never tried at all so I’m always about trying something new. Success to me is if you end up happy then
you’re successful. I’m glad that I’ve chosen Durham as my
institution for learning and a gateway to a great employment. You’ll get there. Durham College will help
you get there.
