My journey as I learn computer coding to become a web designer after I retire from teaching. Join me as I share my successes and my obstacles. I’ve been working on tutorials with FreeCodeCamp. Hopefully, I will reach my goal within the next few years.
Yasss! It took an hour, but I finally figured out my “div” container wasn’t large enough… That meant my icons couldn’t spread out if they didn’t have room. Something so simple! Yet, it took an hour and a Google search before I realized my mistake. My #100DaysofCode is never dull!
