I hope this group will be able to provide me with encouragement to pursue a full-time, Web-centric career through shared knowledge about Web fundamentals and best practices in design and development. I also hope that group members are willing to share career experiences and advice for someone like me who is eager to shift to the Web after many years writing/editing for newspapers and magazines.
I'm interested in building my skill set as both a designer and as a developer. I am currently a content manager for a nonprofit in metro Atlanta. I'd like to jump back into daily news in some capacity if I can find a great post that allows me to combine my journalism background with Web design and development. I'm a big fan of the stories that The New York Times has been posting in the past year (search for "Snow Fall").
More than three years now, but largely in content management and social media marketing.
Atlanta journalist seeking career move into Web consulting. Recently earned a certificate in Web design from Emory University. Hopeful to create a career shakeup in 2015.
