Once you've finished the quarter, you don't get to stop learning. The web work field, whether design, production, programming, or project management-oriented, demands ongoing learning. Here are a few fun things to keep in mind:
Get some experience!
Meet your peers!
Must Have Books!
What about HTML 5.0, XHTML 2.0, and CSS 3.0?
As of April 2010, these are still in development mode; the W3C html validator only does experimental validation for HTML 5, and the W3C CSS validator is still focused on CSS 2.1. Internet Explorer 9 should provide some support for HTML 5 and CSS3 when it launches - possibly in late 2010. Other current version browsers (IE, Firefox, Opera, Safari, Chrome, etc.) only partly and/or experimentally support them.
These are also not being taught in existing SCCCC curriculum. They are not likely to be recognized/used by most local employers for a minimum of 2-3 years. They are mainly in the experimentation and leading-edge stage, where freelance designers and small studios are pushing the envelope and sharing tutorials.
