Name; Yong Chiang
Role: Site Aesthetics Manager/Designer
Hello human, I am Yong Chiang, currently a Year 5 student in Dunman High, a JC Year 1 equivalent. As part of the school’s curriculum this year, my fellow Year 5 members and I have been pulled into this competition, and having no or little prior experience with web designing, we can be considered newbie participants in this year’s ThinkQuest.
As a member of the team, I was appointed the position of managing our site’s aesthetics. On hindsight, considering that I hadn’t a single clue what CSS was, neither did I know how to manipulate HTML codings, nor how to design or create web layouts, managing to have built up pretty much the whole layout of the site from scratch on my own, was quite a challenging feat.
We had an extremely tight deadline to meet (By the time our group was officially formed, we had roughly about two to three weeks left before the dateline...), and faced quite a number of obstacles along the way. However, with the help of my teammates and numerous meditations, I managed to create a dandy enough website.
This whole competition had been a wonderful experience for me, giving me the opportunity to experience creating a website from the ground up and working together with a whole group, working towards a common goal. This competition had been an interesting one, and no doubt, will be something I wouldn't mind participating in the future.
