Resuming Lessons at Free Code Camp

Reading time: 2 mins

Free Code Camp So I went back through the Bootstrap additions and the jQuery course. Now I am building a tribute page to Carl Sagan as my front-end project.

I have all kinds of ideas. I am thinking of adding a couple of planets scattered throughout the page and when you click on one, a quote from Carl appears and the planet dims. Or if you even just mouseover the planet there is some jQuery magic happening where the mouseover() event makes the planet magnify sort of like this:

mouseover

And then they would sort of dim when you moused over them while they magnified…or after.

So many ideas…

JavaScript Understanding the Weird Parts

I wrote a post on my strictly programming blog about coercion. I learned quite a bit about it from Tony Alicea, who made the course I picked up for $10 at Udemy (a steal at that price). His explanation was clear and the console examples made it easy to see what was going on.

No Ads. No Sponsored Content. Ever.

I've decided that I no longer want to have sponsored posts on this blog. I also, though as tempting as it may sound, don't want ads; even if I got big enough for Carbon ads I don't want them. I want to post free, engaging content for beginning/junior devs. This means that I won't have Setapp posts or affiliates on this blog, though I will keep them on the Uses page.
