Project Description

It's time to put all the knowledge you've gained in this course together to create your first website (or second, or third - it doesn't matter).

I’m gonna give you a few options

  1. Build a site from scratch like we did in the majority of the class, or
  2. Start with getting signed up to hosting and get started building your site on Wordpress

It’s up to you either way! Just make sure to include the link to your new website in your project.

Just remember, anytime you don’t know how to do something, start Googling.

I’m not exaggerating here when I say that constant research is something you will need to do throughout your career as a developer and even if you came to just learn more about the web, learning how to research like a developer is a skill we can all definitely benefit from.

Developers after all are just problem solvers and the internet itself is a vast resource for learning anything, just like we have done within the course.

If you do need any extra help, just leave me a comment in the discussion box.

Best of luck and I’ll see you in the discussion section.
