Welcome to the Web Design for Everyone Capstone!!! It really is my intention to make sure that everyone who completes this capstone will have a product they are proud of.

Great course ...thanks to Professor DR. Van Lent and her team. I have learned a lot about Responsive Web Design and the need to take accessibility into account when undertaking web design.
