Work In The Web by Mixd
Last week, from 24th to 27th January, I had the incredible opportunity to attend the third edition of “Work in the web” a workshop of three days organised by Mixd, a web agency composed by super skilled and nice people placed in Harrogate.
During the workshop I learned a lot. It was pretty intense and super helpful to understand better what I have to learn and which tools I need to use to work in the web. I took some notes and I tried to assimilate as much as possible.
Below an overview of the topics and some useful links for tools, learning material and books.
What an experience!
The workshop is held in Harrogate, a nice town in North Yorkshire. Mixd is based there and the workshop is intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Each edition Mixd selects 10 lucky ones that have the chance to attend three days of intense learning sessions about how to work in web.
It has been three days spent learning from skilled and awesome people, passionate about their job and happy to share what they know with students, anxious to learn more. I really suggest to all the students to follow Mixd and applicate on Work in the Web website for the next workshop available (probably on December).
