Internet Security Specialist Certification Achieved!

Internet Security Specialist Certification Achieved!

Today, my oldest daughter let me know that today was Pi Day, and that her school would be celebrating Pi Day by allowing students to sample several different types of Pies in the Gym. I don’t get to have pie. That’s a real downer.

Its partly a downer because while I’m sitting in a lab taking an examination based on my knowledge of internet security, my daughters are both chowing down on pie. I defy you to tell me that that is fair.

Anyhow, I’ve been studying up on internet security over the last month or so with an eye toward getting this certification. It was a wonderful vaidation that my knowledge of internet security methods and actions rises above simple concepts exploration, and into certification from brainbench with the notation of internet security specialist.

HTML5 Certification Achieved!

HTML5 Certification Achieved!

My training in HTML started in 1996. Stop laughing. I didn’t use it much, finding it clunky and difficult to work with. Programs like Web Warrior used some of the first WYSIWYG interfaces, but their setup was basically put together to show you what you had done, rather than allow you to design visually. Later, in 2000 I got to know Macromedia Dreamweaver 2.0 and Adobe Golive, finding GoLive to be the better of the two. That said, I took training in Macromedia Dreamweaver to get to know it better when receiving my certification in Web Design from the University of Georgia (UGA). In all honesty, I used Adobe GoLive more often, because I simply couldn’t afford a full working version of Macromedia Dreamweaver until about 2005.

Well, a lot has changed between 2012 and 2005. HTML had upgraded to HTML5 some time ago, but implementation of it is still spotty at best. That said, we have classes that teach HTML5 and my grasp on the new items such as sections, articles, headers, footers, HTML5 video and HTML5 audio were tenuous at best. This will only become more visible, more popular, and more widespread as time goes on.

As such, I had decided I would spend some time learning about HTML5 over the last few weeks, and I felt my grasp on this was good enough to seek certification. I’m glad I achieved this certification in HTML5, but I’m more glad that I understand the core concepts and specifics about this new coding style.
