2012 Accomplishments

One of my 2012 goals was to launch one new quality blog post each month and I’ve made it! Since I started in 2009, I read specialty articles where I kept myself updated with industry news to improve my skills. Because English is not my native language, researching and writing takes a lot of time. Even though the process of blogging is time consuming, sharing tips and tricks with the web design community has many rewards, both personally and professionally.

Featured completed projects in 2012

The websites that took the most time and effort are highlighted below

Madyson’s Marshmallows

Madyson’s Marshmallows’ website took 90 hours to build. Additionally, my design partner spent extra time on the design aspects of the visual interface.
Lemonstand is an e-commerce online solution helping businesses to become online merchants. Working with Lemonstand and developing this project taught me how to become proficient with integrating this application into websites. I know that if I were to engage in this type of project again, it would take me much less time, due to my newly acquired knowledge.

Brooklyn Workshop

Brooklyn Workshop website took around 77 hours to develop minus the time dedicated to the design aspects.This project challenged me because I needed to improve my skills with some cool jQuery and CSS3 effects. Again, I needed to research, hone and develop the appropriate skills necessary to achieve this venture.

Overall, here are some Skills I have learned and improved this year.

New year resolutions for 2013
