Day 31: Why Weather?

JenCoding practice, Skillcrush0 Comments

I’m not sure why, but many beginning web projects seem to revolve around the weather.  I am actually happy about it, because it gives me something real and useful to put in my portfolio.  I have recently created two weather projects. The first one was completed using Bootstrap with php.  I was really pleased with the look of the final product. … Read More

  I have been hearing about this thing called git since I began coding.  I signed up immediately for an account and tried to figure out the site, but it was not making any sense.  I put it on the back burner and continued learning other things. My Skillcrush blue print finally got to teaching us git this week.  It … Read More

JenCoding practice, Skillcrush0 Comments

Today is another one of those superhero days!  My Skillcrush challenge was to take a script that I had written a few days ago and refactor it down to using only one variable and 3 lines of code.  My original script contained 3 variables and 10 lines of code, so it took a bit of work to get it whittled … Read More

This is a project that I made that combined a couple … Read More

I spent the weekend doing a variety of things that don’t fit into my usual routine. I watched a webinar put out by Skillcrush with tips for making a career change.  It was very helpful, but I am disappointed that I didn’t receive the email links to their ebooks that were supposed to go with it. Friday night was the … Read More
