Update: New workshops are being offered and you can find them here.
What keeps you busy during the day?
I work for Quicken Loans on the Marketing Team (specifically the email team) as a Front-End Email Developer. I write the HTML code for all of the emails that we send at QL.
Why’d you take the class in the first place?
Did you have any experience in coding or programming before?
Yes I did. I began taking Computer Science courses at Wayne State University 3 years ago and got about halfway through the program. I’ve also made WordPress websites for friends and family in the past.
What was the most surprising thing you learned about yourself during the class?
Do you look at technology differently now?
Technology is a little less intimidating now, but on the downside, some of the “magic” was also lost.
What’d you end up building?
I built a website for me to display show dates for my fledgling stand up comedy career. [You can check it out here or a snapshot below.]
Now that you’re done and created a website, any plans to continue?
I want to clean up the site I built in class and make it better, but also I want to start dipping my toes into the pool of becoming a professional web developer.
Have you used your skills since the class ended?
What are your thoughts on Grand Circus?
Grand Circus is a great low pressure place for people to kick start their careers in IT!
