Author / Contributor (March 2022 to Present)
Volunteer with three other software developers to create a Website that will instruct almost anyone how to create their own secure cloud server with a working website that incorporates HTML, CSS, SQL, JavaScript & React.

My role was to instruct the student how to build a simple block-based web page that has a fixed (secured) header and footer, navigation links and a "wiggle" button, an image with a font-based overlay, a formR logo, and is responsive (the page will react properly when small or large).
