Web developer doing awesome things online!

I am a Gemini and what they say is true- Gemini's do have split personalities. For me, one of my personalities is good and the other is better. I am a web developer by day and graphic designer by night.

Coffee and serious dedication have kept me going over the past few years. I am always looking to learn more and more. I am constantly sharpening and developing my skills by using tools like Udemy. You can always learn from others in your field. That’s why a website like Udemy has been needed for a very long time. It’s useful for connecting with other people who share your skill and learning from them.

Be aware of all of the resources out there that can help you with your skill and don’t be afraid to try something new. I learned a lot on Udemy but once I took the leap of faith to use Dreamweaver I haven’t looked back. Now I don’t have to write too much code because the program does a lot of the work for me. As for Photoshop, I learnt 95 per cent of my skills from Udemy.
