web development in the making

I completed the Front End Web Developer Nanodegree from Udacity just a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been meaning to speak about this, but I’ve been busy with several other projects that interested me after my completion.

So, the Front End Web Developer Nanodegree, is it worth it? To answer that question, I’ll have to get into the details of the Nanodegree, and my overall experience. Let’s begin!

What is a Nanodegree?

A Nanodegree is provided by Udacity plus other partners, such as AT&T and Google. It is an online certification.

What will you learn?

The Front End Web Developer Program, let’s just call it FEND to keep it short, consists of html, css, javascript, but that’s not all you’ll learn. The program also includes frameworks, web accessibility, and much more!

How many projects are in the program?

There are a total of 7 projects. They are Personal Portfolio, Memory Game, Classic Arcade Game, Feed Reader Testing, LinkedIn, Github, and Restaurant Reviews Stage One.

How long is the program?

4 months

That is the basic outline of FEND. Now here’s my personal experience! 😁

Why I chose the Front End Web Developer Nanodegree?

I enrolled into FEND to help boost my knowledge and gain more confidence in my work.

Is it necessary to have knowledege in html, css, javascript before enrolling into the program?

I would highly recommend knowing somewhat of html, css, and javascript before applying to the program. If you do not know either three, knowing another programming language would be good.

About the projects…

The program states a total of 7 projects, but only 5 projects are legitimately real projects. In my opinion, LinkedIn and Github should not be included as projects. They should be supplemental. I say this because they are not a requirement to graduate. You must complete the 5 actual projects. They are all graded by a reviewer.

Is the Nanodegree worth it?

FEND was definitely worth it in terms of creating projects. I wished they had more projects within the Nanodegree. I would love that! Overall, I enjoyed my experience as a student (now alumni 👍). I have always believed that any type of education that contributes to my long-term goals is worth it. I would highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in front end developement. 😊

My Projects

Look forward to the projects I created within the FEND program. Coming up soon! If you’re interested in FEND, save on tuition here. Expires 5/30/19. If you have any other questions about the program, leave a comment. Let’s connect! 😊 Thank you for reading!

I’ve officially finished the whole bottle of LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer! It took me 4 months to get all the way to the bottom of the bottle! Here’s my review on it!

As I continued to use LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer, I liked it, but I didn’t think it was all too great either. I love how natural the ingredients are and that it’s vegan! This eye cream didn’t harm my skin. It didn’t miraculously changed the condition of my skin. Since I’m getting older, I need a more moisturizing eye cream. I noticed that this eye cream lacked the proper hydration that my skin needs. As I mentioned before, I have horrible dark under eye circles. I’m going to find an eye cream that targets those skin conditions and gives me results. Overall, not bad if you don’t have the issues that I have.
