Learning CSS/XHTML

After a summer of classes through the New York University School of Continuing and Professional Studies, where I have decided to pursue a Certificate in Digital Media Marketing, I decided to dip back in to web design.

I really don’t think I’m on my way to becoming a web designer, but as a publicist and social media marketer, I am asked to give feedback on website design. Since I know designing websites with HTML went the way of the Dodo bird well over a decade ago, I thought it would be helpful to understand CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and XHTML. Once again, I turned to Ed2Go, which offers Introduction to CSS and XHTML.

Take your existing HTML skills to the next level and start building sites like the pros. If you want to survive and excel in the fast-paced world of Web publishing, you’re going to need to keep up with ever-evolving standards. The new standard for Web developers is to use CSS and XHTML.

I started back in August, and six weeks, 12 lessons, and 12 homework assignments later, I once again passed my exam with confidence, and earned another nifty certificate.

It’s been a hectic summer. But I’m really committed to life-long learning, and today employers and clients want to see that the candidates and consultants they hire are keeping their skills up-to-date and relevant for present and future business needs.

Next up, a web analytics class starting in October!
