ICS 120 – [September 20, 2014]

What a long weekend! Classes were suspended last Friday and Saturday because of typhoon Mario, that’s why we didn’t have our regular meeting in ICS 121, as well as in ICS 120. I started our project in HCI even before our professor announced that it will be an assignment for us. I already created a template that we’re going to use for the website we’ll revise since I have plenty of idle time. As much as possible, I want our website to be pleasing to the user’s eyes, so I decided that we will observe a minimalist design.

I created several div and manipulated its properties through CSS. I created a main container, a div that will hold the contents of the body, a navigation bar and a footer. At first I had a hard time arranging the different div in their correct positions, but then eventually I was still able to fix it. I also put a simple background image so that the site wouldn’t look dull.

I’m looking forward that we will be able to achieve the website we visualized. One that is simple, user-friendly, and enjoyable to use and of course will able to do the correct and necessary transactions of an e-Commerce website. I know that we still have a long way to go before we can achieve that, we just need to exert our best effort in it. I’ll end this blog with a quote by The Mighty Sven from the movie Happy Feet 2. It says,”If you want it, you must will it. And if you will it, it will be yours.”
