Ben Rellick 17 December 2013 Thanks for this article, Ashley. I too have found that having a project to work towards definitely keeps you interested longer; it gives a purpose to the learning. The university I graduated from doesn’t have much of a focus on web design so I was thinking about offering some workshops and whatnot to the undergrads. I think now that I’ll have everyone pick a real, live project to do. I’m glad I read this!
