The untold story, shortly fast backward!

If I remember very well, fast backward in 2008 – 2009, I started teaching myself HTML, JavaScript and PHP. But the inspiration was always developed from the PowerPoint slides I often designed, which sparked my interest in Photoshop.
Kaweesi Mark used to help jot everything to paper while copying from the webpage in the internet cafe. I was the research genius sitting right there before the computer screen. I couldn’t do it all by myself since we used to foot UGX.500/= for 20mins yet getting that 500/= was kissing the gates of hell. Maybe it’s not hell, but me stealing Aunt’s money was hell. It required courage. Anyway let me leave that story for another day. Do you remember those times bro?
Just a quick one, if we didn’t collect scrap, if we didn’t play soccer, if we didn’t sneak to watch soccer without paying, if we didn’t sneak in the cinema halls, what if we didn’t, would we be where we are?
I wish the people reading this are those who admire where I am/we are today, but didn’t actually see us during those days. Many wouldn’t want us closer. I take heart, and I encourage you to persevere. You will achieve everything because you can.
Cutting short a long story, amidst all the complications and confusion in different software, here and there; what always kept me amazed was clicking on something and it responded somehow. Why don’t I do this?
From PowerPoint slides (with clip Art) to HTML. Even now I can’t develop a website from scratch without having to sketch on paper, then get to Adobe illustrator/Photoshop mock up the visual representation and then break down into HTML code.
For whatever it is, one has to go through some sort of fine(creative) Art to lay a foundation for the science of web design.
You are lucky today, we have CMS so there is no need to grasp code unless you want to be a web developer, a UX specialist, a mobile app developer, a desktop app developer or a programmer scientist.
You can even become a superb CMS web designer by attending a 12 days practical class. It’s organised by myself and it will be at Aponye Mall, Block B. NBK-Cleaning Kings International‘s offices. My aim is to take you straight from where you are to a superb CMS specialist. The cost is UGX 300K call me on 0704255401.
