Travel Season

Travel basketball is in full swing, even though posts are very infrequent, between work and everything else, my time to post is limited but I am looking to get some scheduling done that will allow for some posts on the road, here and there, more often.

Just finished up last week the Elixir courses over at Code School, so I am going to head over and work on some stuff I have going over at Udemy and Coursera.

Hopefully the summer season will bring some downtime and I can take a few weeks off and enjoy the summer, if it ever gets here to the New England area… more snow in the forecast for this weekend with a tournament to drive to in Pembroke, MA!

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.

JavaScript Defer & My Ignorance

In my programming travels, I have never seen this before until now…

The W3C states;

When set, this boolean attribute provides a hint to the user agent that the script is not going to generate any document content (e.g., no “document.write” in javascript) and thus, the user agent can continue parsing and rendering. https://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/interact/scripts.html#adef-defer

It’s pretty fun learning something new every day.

Online Learning

The thing that I have kept going with is the online learning. Code School, Codecademy, Free Code Camp. Three of the most frequented sites. I have signed up for a few others, but those are the three I have been on the most.

I recently caught up with everything on Code School and Codecademy, Free Code Camp I am taking a step back and reassessing the work I previously did (I did it hurriedly). I can do better and want to do so.

My work week is long, and I usually just like to unwind during the weekend, not doing any online learning.

Code School is worth the paid subscription, in my opinion. Codecademy is worth the free part, the Pro part seems to be a little on the expensive side, so I won’t even buy it. Free Code Camp is awesome because it covers a lot more in depth parts of programming.

At some point, I will get the motivation to start going through Free Code Camp again, but for now, I’m giving the old noodle a rest. If you haven’t tried those three sites, I highly suggest you do.
