As we build out our site infrastructure and document our development process in our github wiki, I’ve been learning a lot about Markdown. I’m loving the simplicity of this Markdown cheat sheet by Adam Prichard. It’s a boiled down version of Github’s documentation on writing markdown. It gets straight to the point. Gotta love a […]
I never remember how to do this so I’m adding the quick steps here. I know there are ways of auto generating a Table of Contents in Google Docs, but I don’t know, I just like making my own. Don’t judge me. Go through your body of text and Select the headers/text you want to […]
Maybe I can make a daily(ish) bad sketch about my life. Trying it out. Today: Tired of watching my husband get all awesome and superhero-ey as I remain squishy. Trying something new.
I’m a fan of this codementor article by Lawrence Bradford about what you should always include in a resume/portfolio. Simple, to the point, a great no-nonsense list. Also liked her blog all about helping new coders find resources
Great for helping students visualize how they are constructed. https://www.jasondavies.com/animated-bezier/
Note to self: Make a resistor color code calculator.
This is an interesting high-level overview of what a full-stack developer roll looks like. https://medium.com/coderbyte/a-guide-to-becoming-a-full-stack-developer-in-2017-5c3c08a1600c
Although it was another lifetime ago, I used to work at Apple, so when I have issues with my Mac, it bruises my ego. Lucky for me, the internets are full of answers to questions. My hard drive disappeared from the finder. I knew it was ok, I could get to it through the Terminal, […]
I’ve been banging my head against the wall because a local install of a wordpress I’m developing would for some reason not let me go to any wordpress subpages. I kept looking at my permalink settings, they looked fine, tried adding mod_rewrite to my htaccess file. It didn’t make sense because the admin pages were […]
https://www.masterworksfineart.com/blog/frank-stella-and-moby-dick-a-whale-of-an-imagination/ Stella explained “I think the Moby Dick series [1986-1997] is a kind of turning point. I was a little afraid, and probably still am a little, with Moby Dick, but the pictures [are] essentially curved surfaces. They started to really move, and the novel moves; you’re going around the world, it’s pretty wet, there […]
There are fifty billion favicon generators on the web and most of them suck. Most want you to join a mailing list or download some nefarious piece of software. It’s been hard to find one that is free AND that makes transparent favicons. I finally found one that does it all. The search is over! […]
I was reading a Twitter conversation between two programmers a couple months ago. One of them said “I’m not a good programmer, I’m just stubborn.” I completely related and I’ve had that statement on my mind ever since. Despite the dozens and dozens of tutorials over the last few months, despite building my own projects, […]
I’m having too much fun with Scratch. I just started this dinosaur chomping apple game. Need to add some dangerous objects to avoid and maybe a winning score. For now, time for bed.
Back in November I’d done some research on kids coding apps. I made a scratch account but wound up playing more with Scratch Jr. on the iPad with my daughter.. I’ve been spending more time with it and I’m having a blast just goofing off. Here’s my sweet dance moves:
Jolene Kelley is a Craniosacral Therapist in Portland, OR. She hadn’t updated her site in several years. Her previous site was not responsive and while it did a good job of delivering information, it needed a refresh. Jolene was also frustrated that she was unable to update the site other than adding and editing posts […]
Applying River Tips to Life Struggles “If you’re stuck in a hole, balling up and letting yourself go deep instead of fighting the water should help you flush out.” –Quote from Irene’s Kayaking Blog I used to raft quite a bit. Rafting is an interesting sport. Normally the term “swimming,” usually invokes images of happy […]
This article, about how to be ready for web developer job interviews, is just as relevant to me as a returning developer as it is to “newbies.” Eric Elliott: How to Land Your First Development Job in 5 Simple Steps Which reminded me of those great VW commercials:
