1. a web page
due Thu Jan 30
- Create a website that summarizes your internet related experience and background. Think of this as a mini resume or job portfolio, what you want others in this group to know about what you can contribute to a project, what you're interested in, and what you have done before. Include a description of the tools and methods you used, including links to their documentation - enough so that someone else could follow in your footsteps. Be ready to discuss your choices in class.
- Use technologies that showcase what you know.
- You can use any hosting service you wish :
- this assignment course page (as a bare minimum)
- a blog post
- a hosted web service (e.g. nearlyfreespeech)
- a public wiki
- a github or gitlabs or similar page
- ... whatever you like.
- And you can use any technology you want :
- html, images, css, dynamically generated content, ...
- If you have time, willing to spend a bit of money, and the inclination, register a new domain name, and host this somewhere new to you.
- Questions? Ask.
