I graduated from high school in 2012 and have always had an interest in web development since then. I spent a significant amount of time learning web development especially front-end development on my own as well as exploring Adobe programs such as Photoshop and Animate. Last year I began researching programs relating to web development and found BCIT’s New Media Design and Web Development program. I went to the information session and was impressed with what the school would be teaching so I applied for an intake.

At BCIT I have learned a wide variety of tools that would be of use in the web development industry. We have learned about HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery, PHP, MySQL, MySQLi, SASS and Bootstrap. Outside of web scripting I have learned a lot about Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Animate, Premiere Pro, Audition and After Effects. I am also open to having a dual role as both a Web Developer and Graphic Designer if requested by an employer. I found After Effects interesting to learn as it opens a world of possibilities in the creation of video content.

I have enjoyed my time at BCIT as I have found the quality of instruction to be good overall. In the portfolio dropdown, you will find some of my projects that I have made at BCIT.
