I joined the DS106 class a few days later because I figured, I did not want to learn about western civilization just yet. I wanted to stick to what I knew which was computers. I was very excited and thought what could this class teach me that I already didn’t? An then… I met WordPress! I had created al my accounts, Twitter, YouTube, Sound Cloud, and I even created a Flickr. Everything was going great because I had dealt with all these programs and websites before. Then came the “final boss” that I had to battle which was WordPress. I thought that it was going to be as simple as the rest, but man was I wrong. I fought with that thing for hours and it was definitely kicking my butt, but I started to get the hang of it and before I knew it I had figured it out. Embedding all of my pages to it was the hardest part because it just wouldn’t recognize my links. In the end I got it to work and just in time for the first week to end! I’m excited to see what else there is that I don’t know and hope to master it. Seeing that I’m pursuing a computer science major, I know this class will help me with all of my others!
