This month has been busy. I have not coded as many hours as I wanted. I have read articles and used the SoloLearn app when I am not able to code for at least an hour.
Since my last post, I completed the BBC News clone site project. Here is the site:
I pushed the project to GitHub . My version needs a few small changes but I am happy with the outcome. My site looks better than I imagined. The header and side articles took the most time to complete. The experience working on this site made me a more comfortable with CSS and HTML.
During the past month, I stopped working on the #100DaysofCode Challenge. I missed four days in a row one week. The purpose of the challenge is to code for at least one hour daily without missing more than one day each week. Instead of starting over I continue to code as much as I can each week.
Besides Udemy and FreeCodeCamp, I decided to re-take the WordPress Blueprint from Skillcrush.com. I can build a WordPress site, but my goal is to learn to make custom themes. I have to make a strict schedule to carry out my goals for the next few months.
September 13 Jason McCreary is doing part 2 of his Writing Clean Code workshop. The code samples are in PHP. This is helpful for WordPress development.
I also attended Sara Eggers webinar on how to use your iPhone to take stock photos for your website. I currently use free stock photos. I have to admit I have seen many of the photos I use online and on other websites.
These are a few of the articles I found interesting
