Landing Page, Part 2: #100DaysofCode R2D50ish 

I’m getting close to finishing my Landing Page project (FreeCodeCamp). I know I’ve said that before. However, it’s taken longer than I expected. Since my last post about my page, I’ve erased and restarted at least three times.  I get so caught up on color schemes and animation, that I stray away from my main task. I need to focus on the User Story and demonstrate my current skills. Eventually, I will be able to code a webpage with a parallax image. When the time is right, I will master the interesting animation techniques. But for now, I just need a page that includes a video, a place to insert email, and a fixed top navbar. 

Social Icons Finally …

When you finally figured out why your social icons wouldn’t justify-content-between using Bootstrap 4 and flexbox…

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! 

Landing Page: #100DaysOfCode R2D43ish

I started working on my Product Landing Page two days ago. I decided to keep the Caribbean travel theme from my Survey Page. The tests set up by FreeCodeCamp have been very helpful. I get to see in real-time if my code is working and if I’m following the User Story accurately. It’s still a work in progress, so I’ll keep you posted.

CodePen: Survey Form #100DaysofCode

I just completed my third Responsive Design Project tonight. Introducing my RF Travel Survey: Favorite Caribbean Islands form! The easy part was completing the code for the survey. It took longer for me to come up with the topic and questions. Once I did, the project was easy.

The first two projects I completed before FreeCodeCamp added more tutorials. Now that I’ve learned more about responsive design and using media queries, I can go back to redesign my earlier projects. This was the first time where I felt all of the skills I have learned were finally sticking.

#100DaysofCode R2D40: Responsive Web Design Projects

It’s taken me a while, but I finally finished my CSS and Flexbox Tutorials! Now I’m ready to start my Responsive Design Projects! I was able to complete a Tribute and Portfolio pages before FreeCodeCamp added more tutorials. Now that I’ve learned new techniques (and reviewed important old ones), I plan …

R1Day7: Playing with Flexbox Froggy

My #100DaysofCode R1ReDo has been moving slowly, but at least it’s moving. I tried out CSS Grid Garden in January. However, I put my coding aside to deal with a health issue. Now that I’m recovering on medical leave, I’m more determined to be consistent with learning how to code. (Well, at least for these next two weeks.) Today, Day 7, I decided to play around with Flexbox Froggy. Then, I worked on my JavaScript tutorials on FreeCodeCamp.org. I needed to review the basics before I started working on my projects again. Flexbox seemed like a great place to start. Those little frogs were very helpful!
