This week’s Business Web Practices lecture features two individuals with strong ties to Clark College; CTEC and CGT adjunct instructor Fellene Gaylord and Web Development program graduate Christine Watson. Both will share tales of their career journeys with a stress on how successful careers in the world of the web require one to be fluid, open to change, and be willing to regularly develop and expand their skill sets.
Hope to see you on Weds. 11/2/16 at 4:30 in Foster Auditorium at Clark College in Vancouver, Washington.

Here’s the video of Peter Ramsing‘s talk entitled “The Ongoing Adventures of a Front End Developer” which he delivered at Clark College on Wednesday afternoon. Let me just say that web development technologies have been rapidly evolving over the past several years. A day doesn’t go by when a new language, library, tool, technique isn’t trying to grab your attention. Peter talks about this and how important it is to maintain your focus. On behalf of Clark College thank you, Peter.
Here are some links
to things mentioned during Peter’s talk.
This week’s speaker is a Clark College Alum success story. A few years ago, Troy Uyan was a Clark Running Start student exploring career options. He is currently employed as a web developer for the government of Clark County. He talks about how Clark’s CTEC Web Development program helped prepare him for his job and share impressions of his current world of work.
Here’s a video of Troy’s talk given at Clark College on Wednesday, September 28, 2016:

Going to shit
2015 is when web development went to shit. Web development used to be nice. You could fire up a text editor and start creating JS and CSS files. You can absolutely still do this. That has not changed. So yes, everything I’m about to say can be invalidated by saying that.
