It’s almost the end of term, the end of the first year of this 2 year diploma in digital media. We’ve done some bits of image manipulation, a lot of website building – go on, take a look around, you’re browsing the results – and a lot of behind the scenes web work too. There have been shenanigans, much giggling, a few swearing moments. Work has been lost and reconstructed. Lessons have been learned, and new ways of doing things have been found.
Last time I tried to integrate Woocommerce into a wordpress site I struggled with the look, the design, the specifics of the integration. Not this time. With more understanding, it wasn’t easy, but it was easier to fit the pieces together. I think it works quite nicely.
I’m half way through the course, and next year promises to be even better. It’ll be hard work, but I’m told there will be more of the creative image manipulation side of things. I’ve enjoyed re-creating this site, and will enjoy working on it with greater understanding of how it all fits together.
So now I’m blogging rather than cracking on with the 1500 word final assignment… Wish me luck?
