Wondering about where to go for work experience in Hereford? Meet Adam – The DM Lab’s latest work experience student from The Hereford Academy. He has spent the full working week with us this week and has been challenged with a variety of different tasks ranging from front-end development to the basics of Photoshop. We were very impressed by how quickly he picked up these skills, especially to such a high standard. He has been a joy to have around and has grown in confidence as the week has gone on, which is amazing to see! Have a look at what Adam has to say about his experience with us below.
Work Experience in Hereford at The DM Lab
“Starting the week, I started learning how to program in HTML, as I never tried coding before. I made a test page at first when learning the language then was given the challenge to recreate The DM Lab’s ‘Stuff & Things’ newspaper. With the help of Joe and Harvey, I managed to recreate the front page of the newspaper.”
“On the second day, I was told to continue to recreate the newspaper article. However, I was told to try using CSS grid instead as a challenge. After a bit of trial and error with Joe, I managed to make the layout. Afterwards, I filled in the rest of it, finishing the 2nd page of the newspaper.”
“On the fourth day, Chris decided to put me on Photoshop. He gave me a go at graphic design as I said earlier in the week that I enjoy art. At first I followed a tutorial to make a certain logo as I had never used the software before. Then I was told to make my own logo. I decided to make one about Rubix cubes, as cubing is one of my favourite hobbies. I challenged myself with making it look 3D and the result was just that.”
“Overall, the experience was an eye-opener for me. I never tried programming before but I loved doing it. This made me reconsider what I should do in the future and made me think about being a developer. The people here are also all friendly and welcoming. At first I was nervous as I didn’t know what I was going into. At the end of the week I was fully relaxed. I had a fantastic time here at The DM Lab.”
