Project Description

You’re probably here because you want to spice up your work and take it to the next level. Throughout the course you’ll be learning some code and tricks to do just that. What better way to practice your new skills than to work on a piece of your own writing?

Take a piece of your own writing and mark it up with as much of the code discussed in this course as is appropriate for the piece. Don’t add something like a bulleted list just to do it, but if something in the piece should be in a bulleted list then make sure to format it appropriately.

If you don’t have something you’d want to share or would rather work on someone else’s piece, make a friend in the class (hard things are always easier with friends) and switch or if all else fails you can use the piece provided.

It can also help if you work on the project little by little as you go through the videos to cement the content in your head.

When you’re finished, be sure to share your work so that everyone can share in the glory of your new skills.

Resources for the class are attached.
