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.

Taking a Mind Break

Heeey! I hope you’ve all had a relaxing and productive Saturday. I’m taking a small break. I had so many thoughts in my mind this week (more than my usual ADHD brain), that I can’t organize them into blog posts. I’ll be back soon. Logging Off for a Minute!

 

Learning About Moths…

I try to keep my daytime “Teacher Life” from my nighttime adult life. However, I saw this last week and had to share. I think I would’ve died if a moth this big flew in front of me. It’s beautiful, but it’s massive compared to our NJ brown moths.

Playing with Bootstrap 4: #100DaysofCode, R2D13

It’s Caturday and “School is Over” Saturday! That means I can focus my time, mind, and energy on my coding. Today I was designing a portfolio website using Bootstrap 4. Actually, I’m trying to review HTML5 and different frameworks. It seemed like a good idea to review Bootstrap using W3Schools’ website. Now that I’ve gone through the information a second time, it makes sense. It’s still a work in progress, but this is what I’ve done so far. Continue reading

Accessibility, R2D12: #100DaysofCode

I think I’m on Day 12 of my second round. It’s been a little difficult keeping track of my coding for the #100DaysofCode. Although I mark it on my calendar, I forget to talk about it on my blog. So, today, I’m making a special effort to remember. Today, I’ve been working on the Applied Accessibility tutorials on FreeCodeCamp.

When I logged in two weeks ago, I was happy to see the new tutorials. These were topics that I was already researching on the Internet. The hardest part about having ADHD as an adult is I have difficulty holding on to new material. So, I’m glad that I could review JavaScript and HTML5/CSS concepts. (Whew! I can’t believe I finally said that out loud! As a teacher, I deal with young students that are just starting their journey with ADHD. Huge that I made a connection to my difficulties.) I’ve dealt with technology accessibility with my elementary students. Now, I’m looking forward to learning about coding to make my web pages more accessible.
