I was pleasantly surprised and chuffed that my latest Solo Project on my #Scrimba journey only took two days to complete.

When I saw a 3 page website we had to write and style from scratch, I thought it would take weeks. But thanks to the reusability of my code, after doing the mobile #CSS, only a few tweaks were needed for the desktop design.

“Hey, Kai! Why don’t you do more learning in public?”

Because THIS is what that would look like! 😆

I made a rookie move when learning to manage my project on #GitHub and hard reset it trying to make a branch for the old code pre #docker version to keep separate. Anyway managed to grab the code from the pull requests for me and put it back in. #opensource #nodeJS #learningtocode

Learn in public, people always tell me. But then I’m in a rush to get things done and don’t have the wherewithal to livestream my frenzy because that would take even more time and resources etc.

So, instead, I blogged about it in retrospect: “I Hardcoded My Portfolio Website — 8/10 Would Make This Mistake Again!”

Just have to say the React beta docs are fantastic, been me with nailing some stuff I struggled to understand last year. Worth checking out if you haven't already, the pennies started to drop as I began working with this guide rather than the current docs on the site ⏩

Also, found the legacy site for CRA which helped me better understand what's under the hood:

One way to create unique IDs to be used as keys when rendering list items in React is to use the Date. now method.

function addItem(itemCreated) {
itemCreated. id = Date. now();
setItems((items) => [...items, itemCreated]);

Tried out an HTML5up template, and any IDs or classes I add to the CSS are being ignored entirely. I can change styling of existing classes and IDs. But apparently I may not create new ones.

What the actual fuck??? 🤬

I'll have another go at it tomorrow. For now I will sleep knowing I *don't* have to doubt my flexbox skills, because that's what drove me to despair before we figured out what was happening.

Problem-solving is totally an interdisciplinary skill. The steps to solve a problem in education are the same as solving a problem in coding, the same as solving a problem in parenting...

Just wasted an hour on this SQLite3 create database error on MacOS.

TLDR - file path error. Need to get my head around why producing that, but for purposes of today solved by just removing the folder structure.

In related news, I have successfully procrastinated updating Xcode for approximately four weeks now. I reckon I can’t avoid it much longer. 😭 IYKYK… 😂

I've been learning about coding for 96 days.

Sometimes I look back and feel like I've learned so much.

And then I'm struck with how little I actually know.

My python task for the day was to take an input grid and produce a minesweeper like score.

I started writing the algorithm to deal with the centre of the grid, but then realised that I could deal with the whole thing through three functions with three if statements within, leaning the entire program out.

Really happy with this wee project which contains nested logic and nested lists - I usually struggle with both.

Just found out about Advent of Code. I'm not sure I know enough yet to really participate, but it looks like fun!

I decided to learn to code in #Python. I have never coded a thing in my life. I have never used a c prompt.

When I ask my (expert coding) husband a question, he tilts his head like a beagle who's heard a foreign sound, and can barely comprehend the question.

This is how I am reminded that we all process information sooooo differently.

One reason I made this account is to document my learning. And one resource I've found useful and inspiring during these early days is the Code Newbie Podcast.

This episode features an interview with Caitlyn Greffly & highlights some things to keep in mind early in your coding career.
