over spring break we needed to work on our personal portfolio page and get a working page and see how far we could take it.


With the midterm exam (writing a page from scratch in class) and midterm site (making a site from scratch outside of class) out of the way, we now move on to other web building exercises.

This week, for our midterms we are working on building a full working website from scratch using nothing but code and a handful of pictures. while a little tricky, learning how the box model works make building a page much easier. Due Thursday as well as an in class written exam where we must build a website from scratch on paper to the prof’s specifications. 

We started working with Dreamweaver without using Photoshop. Working back and forth between CSS and HTML we started exploring the “Box Model” which seems to be the basis of website design. A lot of code to try to remember, but with all the repetition it should make it a bit easier. 

We started learning how to incorporate CSS into web design. While there is a lot to remember, it looks like once I learn it, it will become a powerful tool. For the project I'm trying to redesign the website for my brother's restaurant, though I am coming across a few hiccups.
