David Carmichael

Web Design Fundamentals Certificate

My name is David Carmichael. I am from Campbell River and I am in the Web and Mobile App Development program. Before North Island College, I was in the Canadian Forces as an Army Communication and Information Systems Specialist (ACISS) for 9 and a half years. In my program, I enjoyed learning new technologies and meeting new people. The biggest thing I have learned from the program is how much versatile a developer needs to be. After graduation, I plan to find work and possibly start my own business.

My favourite course was Portfolio Project because I have been using everything that I have learned and more. After spending 9 1/2 years in the Canadian Forces (almost my entire adulthood) upon my release I decided I wanted a new career that offers me more freedom in my life, and challenge me more intellectually. I grew up a huge music fan, and despite not being musically talented, it’s always had a major influence on my life. One of my goals is to use the skills and knowledge I have acquired through my military service, and the NIC web and mobile app program to further evolve, improve and make a positive impact on the music industry as we move forward into the future. I also have a dog, a border collie named Sadie who is awesome.

District Decibel

The project I am displaying in the showcase is my District Decibel concept, which is a music streaming website that also offers many other services and features that currently fans and musicians must go to several platforms to have access to. Having all these services all in one location and made in a clean and user friendly format will provide the best experience for fans and an all inclusive tool for musicians to promote their art. The project will be built with WordPress (PHP, HTML, CSS), with an embedded app created with Javascript with the Vue.JS framework.
