A Little About Myself

I live in Folsom, where I grew up, and I work with a State program as a Document Analyst. I hope to move into a position where I can work with databases, but for now I want to take courses to improve my skills. I like playing video games and I have a lot of friends I met playing online, so it has been a very social hobby. I also like sports, especially baseball, and have been a Yankees fan ever since I can remember. Hopefully, they'll make it to the World Series this year.

My Computer Experience

I've been using computers since elementary school and I think I've been using Word and Powerpoint that long. I have an older Sony VAIO all-in-one computer that has been very reliable, and it doesn't take up a lot of space on my desk. At work we have Windows desktops and we work with Word, Excel and Access. I don't think I have a favorite type of software, but I'm comfortable with Word and Excel. Over the past few years I've taken computer classes but I need to refresh and update what I learned.

What I know about the Web and web publishing

I've taken courses on the Web and I did have to upload files to a server, but I found that there was a lot of material to cover and I didn't get everything, since the work was mostly following instructions right out of a book. I'm hoping that this course will give me a better foundation, especially in the basics of web publishing. Alhough I think my job will not involve web work, you never know, and the skills will come in handy.
