The latest part of the Web Development Bootcamp course that I tackled was a really fun code-along project. I’ve talked before about how valuable I’ve been finding these code-alongs, and this project was great because it was so comprehensive. It’s a pretty simple idea: the player is shown an RGB value, and has to click … More Colour Game Code-Along
As I mentioned in a previous post, I completed the Wikipedia Viewer project for freeCodeCamp. I wasn’t entirely happy with it though. I had used the opensearch action, and while I liked the results it came up with- I thought they were quirky and interesting, it wasn’t really what was intended from the project.

Just as I claimed I was coming back to working on web development I disappeared again- what gives?! Well, for the second time now I’ve moved halfway across the world, and as great as it is to be able to do that, it’s also a whole lot of work! We’re finally settled in now, and … More Life Update!

The only portfolio I’ve had up until this point was made as a project for freeCodeCamp. You can check it out here– but don’t get too excited about it! The requirements of the project were: the ability to see all content by scrolling, links to our social media profiles, thumbnails of completed projects, links to … More Portfolio 2.0
I haven’t been so much of a Part-Timer lately, as a zero-hour-contract-er… Let’s just say life took over for a while [important, grown up, life things, that I won’t bore you with] but I’m back learning web development again! I’ve discovered an amazing new thing: Cupcake Ipsum! [Yes, this is important enough to mention!] I’ve … More Bi-Weekly Learning Update (15!)
It seems like ages since I last posted! I’ve still been making progress though- this week I’ve finished the Stanford SQL course, read through the Frameworks chapter of the Odin Project, and now I’m looking at diving into Ruby on Rails. The Odin Project warned us that the SQL course would be pretty heavy going- which … More Bi-Weekly Learning Update (2!)
