Busy, Volume II

So I have just gotten around to posting an update. With basketball (the high school season) thankfully over, we move on to the AAU travel season which officially starts next week. The boy starts this year with new team that plays ball in A division tournaments and gets prep/college scouts looking at them, so maybe he has a chance to be noticed. How he does is on him.

The break in-between was much needed, but there will still be plenty of traveling to do. I managed to get the Wikipedia project for FreeCodeCamp done, you can view the CodePen “pen” here, or you can also view it over on my site right here.

I, on the other hand, are trying to relax and rest before a 3 month long tour of New England and basketball tournaments. I’ve been filling the time with my keeping up over at Code School, work at my full time place of employment, parenting, and other things/people that matter.

I’ve been doing some courses over at Udemy and Coursera, Saylor, I have been immersed in learning, downloaded some great eBooks on programming, and just trying to save up for a nice vacation this summer.

Look for my next post, whenever that might be, on Building A TwitchTV Viewer from FreeCodeCamp.

Busy, Volume I

Close Encounters with PHP is up and I can finally go back in and go through this course. Finally, back to being really busy, I’ve been trying to manage my time better. To no avail however.

My son plays basketball and is currently starting on JV and on the bench for varsity. So he has practices nearly every night and games, couple that with working 40 hours a week, I get home and I am beat. I wouldn’t trade it for anything though.

I’m hoping soon, and that’s probably in March, that things slow down a bit. We shall see. I’ll get back to updating this thing more often and I have another Free Code Camp update to post as well. Ciao!

Personal Portfolio

Here is the link to the freeCodeCamp Build a Personal Portfolio Webpage. This one was another one I built hurriedly, then backtracked and found, and styled this one I saw from another Codepen. This was one of those cases where finding re-usable code was done because I did not have a lot of time to start from scratch during this project.

Build a Tribute Page

So this begins my first post on what I have been doing in freeCodeCamp and this was the first project to do. Build a Tribute Page and to be honest, I had a page thrown up that was just a quick job and done, but I decided to go back and really go through and put something together, following the guidelines.

More projects to follow, as soon as I can get the time to post them. I’ve also posted the project here.
