We also met web developer Sam Ward and web designer Marry Fran Wiley. Sam did build freelance websites and he does web codes. Marry is who got a job at Orbit from her own website and expert of designing website. Her main job is to design the website the way their client want and need.
From this field experience I learned how websites are built and how long it take to build one website. Building website usually take at least 2 or 4 months to accomplish the best website. I also learned how the website’s logo is created and how much you have to care about it. The web designers and developers don’t really care the logo but the website to be the best to represent well the logo.
