The last year of my life has been one of reflection and awakening in which I have recently made the decision to become a web developer. I found myself wanting to become a master of a 'craft' and it took some time to decide on what that should be.
Being in my late 30s with 3 kids and the standard compliment of adult responsibilities, the options for formal education in my area are limited and more importantly - obsolete. As someone who has also struggled with the constraints of traditional learning in the past, I knew that a path of self training was the most likely scenario but was concerned about how to execute it well enough so I didn't miss any important facets or subjects.
Anyway, I have a long boring story leading up to this point but what's important is that I am crazy excited to participate in the program and become a student of the school. I am also in the position to offer assistance should it be required in a coordination or administration function. My background is management/administration and if there is a need I would be glad to help.

"I've always been told, not to try to reinvent the wheel. I would like to incorporate minor search capabilities into a browser. Have your preferences or sites that you visit on a daily basis be updated on your browser as soon as you turn it on. 1 possible way is for the info to be buffered somehow; be it a cloud or ? . When you turn your computer on, the info from your ""daily site search"" fills in the area of your browser set aside for this function. Another feature that would be great is to be able to filter the search results from a search engine; as 90% of the results are ""filler"" and totally useless to anyone except the search engine company, that feeds you ""useless search engine babble"" just like mind numbing commercials on TV."
