I’m still exploring CodeAcademy, which has proven to be a very interesting site.
So I decided to regroup and see what else they offer. I mentioned in the earlier post that I needed to update my HTML skills, so I moved on to that part of the site. I certainly learned to create web pages before CSS days, so I needed to learn a lot more about that, too, and I am. I’ve gotten through the HTML portion and the first CSS section, and I don’t see any of that as wasted time.
At this point I would happily recommend CodeAcademy to anyone who wants to learn the basics of creating a web site. I feel that I’m learning the basics of programming, but I’m not far enough along to opine about that bit yet. We’ll see whether or not that issue is resolved in a timely manner, first.
There are certainly other alternatives, but that’s what I’ve learned in the last 24 hours.
I didn’t sleep very well last night, although I managed to stay up all day yesterday (unusual lately). Unfortunately, I ended up sleeping most of the day, today, and I’m still sleepy! So I hope I can sleep well again, tonight.
I have a fever, too, so apparently pushing myself to not nap was a bad idea. Doctor’s orders are still to lay down 15 minutes of every hour, which makes it difficult to get much done at a time. Oh well. It’s better than a fever.
The girl got home safely, but didn’t go out with her friends tonight as planned due to a threatening migraine. They didn’t really see much of the meteor shower, because the skies were too cloudy, but they did have fun.
I finished reading the second of Kat Richardson’s Greywalker books today, Poltergeist. Very good stuff, and a nice change from some of the too-common urban fantasy themes. The library is holding Underground for me, which I hope to pick up tomorrow.
