Q.  Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A.   Yes, I am always learning.  That is one reason I can now offer the mobile ready websites that used to cost more.  I also use an open source design platform because I studied the options and found that the open-source (free) products were as good or better than the commercial products.  There are lots of videos and articles which teach about the tools of the trade.  In my case html, css, php, sql, ajax, and java script to name a few.

MIT, Harvard and other universities also have classes on-line at no cost.  They are available to anyone.  Look up massive open online courses (mooc) Stanford University and opencourseware (ocw) Massechusettes Institute of Technology .  You will be surprised at the variety of college level courses available.
