Milo Webster solves the complex language of computer coding

Milo+Webster+solves+the+complex+language+of+computer+coding

Summer can be a great time to start new things and experiment. For Milo Webster, sophomore, summer was the beginning of a start up business that could very well blossom into something bigger.

Webster creates and designs websites and began his business, Nocturnal Creative, last summer. He specializes in computer coding, the ‘language’ of computers, to create websites for small businesses. In order to expand his work, Webster emails people or businesses that don’t have website links on their businesses cards.

“The first website I designed was actually free, but that person recommended me to someone else, and so on, Webster said. “It branches out from there.”

Webster began his journey with coding when he took Web Design 1 during his freshman year, a class for learning the ins and outs of making websites and writing website code.

“In Web Design 1 focuses more on design, and in Web Design 2 you learn more about advanced scripting language, creating images and programming,”  Wind Lothamer, technology teacher, said. “Milo is an independent learner and he likes to explore on his own. Sometimes he comes to me for help, but just for specific questions. His website looks pretty professional.”

Though his interest stemmed from there, it only goes so far. Webster does not see his business as his sole future career, but he still wants to make this business last for a long time.

“It’s time consuming, but I do it because I want to,” Webster said. “I think I’ll try to keep it going as a job.”

Though he doesn’t see web design as his main career, Webster wants to pursue a career involving computers, possibly computer or website programming. With all the different branches of computer careers, he has many paths to choose from. Currently, Webster is also involved in sports such as skiing and pole vaulting. The potential to grow has only just begun.

His website displays his previous work and provides contact information for any questions or interests people may have.

About the Contributor
Sarah Chung, Co-Editor-in-Chief
Not only is Sarah Chung a piano player, National Merit semi-finalist, tennis player and snowboarder, but she is a phenomenal writer and dedicated journalist. “Journalism is my favorite class, and I’m not just saying that because Ms. Breyne (Journalism Adviser) is standing right next to me,” Sarah Chung, senior, said. She had no idea that after joining the eighth grade journalism class at Athey Creek Middle School that she would be co-editor-in-chief of the West Linn High School Amplifier. As a senior enjoying the early release sixth period, she is starting to think about college. “I’m really excited, but also scared because it is almost over,” Chung said. “I am definitely going to make the most of this year.” Chung is interested in attending the University of Washington, University of North Carolina, Duke or the University of San Francisco to go into medical school. After going on a mission trip to Nicaragua, her lasting impressions of the doctors and how they were able to help the people in the country stuck with her. She now dreams of practicing medicine and going on frequent trips to help people in need, like the ones she saw in Nicaragua. Outside of her journalism life, Sarah Chung lives with her parents, Jonathan and Grace, her fourth grade brother, Nathan, and her Maltese, Mickey. She plays varsity tennis and enjoys driving around with her friends in one of their Volkswagen Bugs. She continues to play the piano, which she began when she was six years old. Chung was born in California on Groundhog’s Day, Feb. 2, and she moved to Oregon when she was only a couple months old. What Chung appreciates about Oregon is the seasonal changes.  “They must be distinct,” Chung said.  Winter is her favorite season because all the “good” things are in it.  Christmas, snowboards and snow.  She loves to go to the mountain and snowboard with her friends during winter. Chung is looking forward to her fourth year on the Amplifier providing great journalism to the students, staff and the community of West Linn.
