Friends don’t let friends code tired

And I’ve been lots of tired lately. Kind of bummed about my not-so-speedy progress, but progress is at least being made.

Finally wrapped up JavaScript class and all projects in it. Without a doubt I need to do more practice/study in it to feel like I have a handle on it. Heading to two JavaScript related meet-ups next month – I hope – the one I’d hoped to do this month got cancelled – to get more comfortable in it.

Went ahead started the responsive class while still wrapping up JavaScript as just super interested to jump in. First big project is to take a site we all coded in the HTML intro course and make it mobile-first and then also responsive. I think I’ve accomplished the mobile part, but first attempts at media queries for tablet and desktop were no so successful. Need to get back in to give it another whack, but, see above title.

I’ve also signed up for a course through Udemy on using Chrome Dev Tools. We for sure have talked about it in the Skillcrush classes, but I’m not sure I’m using it to it’s full potential (while googling for some info on the topic, I did watch a brief video about using Dev Tools to debug JavaScript which, hey, is good to know if I ever feel like I’ve gotten the hang of coding in that. )

Another reason I wanted to take a Dev Tools course is that it seems like the most often given piece of advice from the teachers of this class when folks ask a question is: Test it out in Dev Tools! Which I can appreciate, sure, but it also seems like just answering a question or two in a straightforward manner would be occasionally really helpful.

It’s like: I can’t turn on my computer, what do I do? Test it out in Dev Tools! …… no.
