September, 2016 (8)
Operation’s Manager of WSBC-AM, WNDZ-AM & WAIT-AM, Jorge Murillo, representing all seven Newsweb radio stations, took an online training course on the coding language JavaScript. The training course came from www.codeacademy.com. Mr. Murillo created an animated Computer Title, and learned how to make the “animated title” bounce on the computer screen, and create the letters of the title with bubbles and squares and filled each bubble or square with different colors to give the title a colorful appearance. This was done by using “variables, functions”, and “arrays” in the coding language. This course helped Jorge acquire skills that could qualify him in the future for a higher-level position.
