How to keep up with internet technologies
As a freelance website designer, let me be the first to tell you, it’s not easy keeping up with the latest and greatest in what the internet has to offer. After doing what I do for almost 10 years now, i still have to google some things that clients request in order to learn about it, since they’re so new. Don’t get me wrong, as a self acclaimed computer nerd, I’m usually on top of most things that are popular and going on, but I’m only human and have the same amount of hours in a day as everyone else.. As much as i’d love to be supergirl and have the power to get a constant RSS feed of the latest internet technologies plugged in to my brain, I don’t think that’s a technology that’s out yet..lol
So how do you do it?! There are several websites out there that keep you updated on whats new and exciting on the web. As a website designer, i do a lot of webinars, and read tech blogs to make sure i’m as up to date as humanly possible. Read read read. That’s how you do it. There’s no way to be a step ahead of the internet, cause it’s always a step ahead of us!
