Wow Weekly Monday 7th October

Welcome to this weeks Wow weekly. My new design is well under way and I hope to be moving to my new theme pretty soon. Here is a selection of must-read posts for this week on getting started in IT, blogging, Adobe and the usual collection of design and development links.

Getting Started in IT & Blogging

If only I was born some 15 years later into the world where everything is run by computers, things might be different. Just kidding! When I was a youngster I played games on a BBC and the only computer I had access to at junior school was an Acorn Computer (Remember Them). At Secondary school, the computers were about as powerful as a pocket calculator and were only used if you wanted to study Business Studies which may have come in useful I guess. However, I didn’t as I opted to study Media Studies instead and got to host a radio station for 2 years on the trot, which back then was cool.

I started getting into computers when I was 19 when I wanted to do a programming course in Cobol but the college decided that I was a girl and girl’s can’t do programming so they enrolled me in an office course instead. Needless to say, I completed the course in 2 weeks and bid them farewell. Since then I have self-taught everything from upgrading computers to web design, programming and this blog with it’s umpteen re-designs. I often wonder if I could achieve what I have done and more going to university but who knows!

Have you got a formal qualification or do you believe you can achieve anything with a little hard work?
