You know what they say, sometimes you have to crawl before you can walk – or something cliché like that. Regardless of how you say it, the opportunity to design a micro site for Nolan Securities and Investigations (NSI) gave me a chance to test the waters of web design without the challenges associated with putting together an entirely new site.

NSI, the area’s largest, most-trusted event security provider, is gearing up for a hiring surge as they recruit candidates for large upcoming sports events.   A scaled down version of  their primary site, it is only three pages, built primarily to allow candidates to apply for positions on line. The micro site was built in an effort to control increased web traffic to its main site

Developing the site was a wonderful learning opportunity which allowed me to quickly pick up the basics of web design. I became familiar with setting up hosting accounts, customizing WordPress themes, working with widgets and Formstack accounts, linking site pages, and editing content.

In addition, I was able to meet and work alongside a great group of professionals. I greatly appreciate the hard work and dedication of those who aided us in launching this project in a timely manner and look forward to working with them in the future.

Since then, I have gone on to work on much larger web projects, and, with the help of my trusty sidekick and mentor – Lorraine – have learned an incredible amount about web design in a short time. As I continue to progress, I know it’s important to remember that collectively these baby steps will eventually, one day, amount to the web developer I can and will be.
