Most of the people who were there before the recent millennium will agree with me that life changes. Long are gone the days when you would ask any school going kind what they would like to become and the answer was pretty easy. It had to be Doctor, Lawyer and Pilot. Some few years into the 2000 millennium, ask the same kid or any of the same age as before and thy will proudly talk of musician, comedian, dance or Web designer for those who are exposed to computers and the internet.
Yes! You heard it right, Web designer. If you have not yet noticed that we are living in the digital world I will excuse you because you are too old. Web designing is the in thing. It is very unfortunate that people end up studying for completely irrelevant courses in the field that they like to join. This could be a case of misguidance or just presumptuousness.
For web designing, here are the courses that will keep you going and up to date in your career:
Graphic design is a course that will equip you with the knowhow of using computer software to develop a design. This will also introduce you to various software that are used in web design like Flash and Photoshop.
This is an important skill that will help you be able to write interesting material and publish in the web.
This is different from any other language. It has nothing to do with linguistics as it is basically web design jargon. You will be guided and instructed on different coded computer languages. For example HTML is one of these basic languages that you will so much need to succeed in your career.
