Project Rainbow’s Aim

As a project member you will own a section or a page to bring to completion to add to your portfolio.
You will create and own your learning plan based on your development/upskillng needs, this will require you to assess how and where your section will be accessed and used both on website and in the clients primary platform (Facebook), this flexibility allows for project members to be able to select and use tools specific to your development.

Site development.

We’ve decided on using a WordPress (WP) site as opposed to Droople, Divi, Wix etc. We will be reviewing current design and theme and use WordPress dev tools to experiment with building the site, ‘fiddling’ with the database as this will allow members to review Front-end dev CSS upskill and development.
