Diary Of An Aspiring Software/web Developer by MirthOsas(m): 11:31pm On Jul 28, 2021
Hey Diary smiley

I created you to keep track of my progress as I venture into learning software/web development and eventually become an established developer.

Today I downloaded a course: The Ultimate Full Stack Web Developer Bootcamp by Kalob Taulien. Going through the contents, Kalob advised that one of the best editors is VS Code, so I downloaded it too.

So far, I have learned how to customize the VS Code editor; create an html file; add the html, head, title, body, bold, italic and underline opening and closing tags. I also learned how to link different pages both internal and external.

Tired already, see ya tomorrow my dearest diary. cool


P.S: Special thanks to the ogas at the top, the likes of @tensazangetsu20. Going through your thread on the languages newbies should learn was a huge source of motivation. I'm grateful boss.

Use that course to learn just HTML. There's just one video on flexbox and one on grid in the CSS section. When you are done with the HTML download CSS the complete guide and JavaScript the complete guide by Maxmillian Schwartz.

Dear Diary,

Today I did a recap of what I learned yesterday, and I also learned some new stuff. They include:
1. Creating a link that automatically opens in a new tab.
2. Adding an image to a webpage and also modifying its width and height, coupled with the 'alt' attribute especially when the 'src' attribute is wrong.
3. Linking an image to another webpage.
4. The Break and Horizontal rule.
5. Creating lists - Ordered & Unordered.

Diary, html so far is fun smiley I sincerely hope it stays this way.

I'll see ya tomorrow.

Give your self some time.

Good luck.

As for CSS, dont spend too much time on it.

Thanks baba.
I actually gave this a thought, but considering the fact that I already work full time with a firm, I'm thinking it could be disadvantageous as I'm followed by a lot of my colleagues and employer. I'll just look for a way to work around it though.
Thanks once again. smiley

Good morning boss smiley
Definitely, no pressure at all. My only prayer is that I remain consistent.
I'd really like to know why you suggested I shouldn't spend much time on CSS.

Hey Diary,

I Know you weren't expecting me this early today, but I had a lil free time and I decided to get my hands dirty. I actually posted my first project on codepen.io grin grin Isn't that amazing?? cool cool
Here's the link: https://codepen.io/MirthOsas/pen/PomemYo
I know the project is really basic, but a journey of a thousand miles would require that one starts from a reference point right? grin grin
I'll see ya later

Wassup Diaryyyyy smiley

Today was pretty cool at work, coupled with the feeling I had after submitting my first basic project on codepen. grin

I think I'm going into the main stuff already as I got stuck at some point, your man had to take a break. grin
I learned some really cool stuff today, such as:
1. Creating internal links using the 'id' attribute, this could help one scroll to the bottom of a webpage and back to the top without the stress of scrolling manually, cool cool let's talk about how technology makes life easier. grin grin
2. Creating favicons using the 'link' element, this attaches a pic to the title tab(not sure if that's the word tongue) of one's webpage.
3. Pathing! (the tricky one) - this got me stuck at some point, but I'm glad I found my way around it.cool cool This actually helps one to link different images or webpages in different folders or even the same folder.

That's it for today D!
From the course contents, I'll be delving into creating tables tomorrow..
Night night smiley

Hey D!

Today was sleep-filled. grin grin
I learned about creating tables today; how to modify the width of the table; modifying columns and rows using the 'colspan' and 'rowspan' attributes.
I also learned about the table header tag.

I'll try to do some more practice tomorrow on everything I have learned so far, see ya. smiley

Dearest D!

Weekend has come to an end, grin I practiced more on everything I've learned so far. Looking at the course contents I'm almost done with HTML. cool

We go again tomorrow smiley
Re: Diary Of An Aspiring Software/web Developer by MirthOsas(m): 9:04am On Aug 03, 2021
I know you missed me D!

I'm sorry I didn't update ya last night, I was really tired, although I still learned some new stuff cool

I got to learn about the following:
1. The 'class' attribute - This is used in the style element/tags
2. The 'id' attribute - it's also used in the style element and the tag for creating links.
3. Code formatting - The 'pre' and 'code' tags.
4. HTML entities - How to create symbols, I did learn how to create the ©, <, and > symbols.
5. Introduction to Forms - input element, text area tags and the associated attributes.

D! I won't lie, the knowledge is actually getting much coupled with the fact that I really can't make anything beautiful yet. grin grin I'll give myself time though smiley

See ya later.

Baba! @tensazangetsu20, did you at some point feel overwhelmed about knowing too much and not being able to create anything meaningful and useful too?
Re: Diary Of An Aspiring Software/web Developer by MirthOsas(m): 3:39pm On Aug 03, 2021
Yay! D..

I can now say this dude is done with HTML! cheesy cheesy I learned how to create buttons; drop-down menus and how to embed videos today. With these and the others I've learned thus far, I have completed HTML! cool cool

I'll just practice everything I have learned tonight, and create a project tomorrow.

It's also important to note that I have downloaded the course on CSS suggested by the boss @tensazangetsu20: CSS - The complete guide by Maximilian Schwartz.

I'll be delving into CSS from Thursday. I'm all pumped up mehn! cool cool wink

I'm back smiley

I started learning CSS today, and so far it hasn't been really difficult to understand.
I learned the following:
1. The style tag
2. Ways to include CSS in a webpage - inline; using selectors inside the style tag; creating an external stylesheet and linking it to the html file.
3. CSS rules - Selectors have properties, and properties can be set to different values.
4. How to import fonts from google-fonts.
5. Types of selectors - element, class, universal, id, and attribute selectors.
6. Specificity and Inheritance.

That's it for tonight, I'll see ya tomorrow.
Re: Diary Of An Aspiring Software/web Developer by MirthOsas(m): 11:19pm On Aug 06, 2021
Dearest Diary,

I created some sort of navigation bar today, cool CSS is indeed interesting as it gives some sort of life to page,smiley unlike Mr Boring HTML. grin

Today I learned about:
1. The box model - each element being treated as a box having contents, padding, border and margin.
2. Margin collapsing - merging of individual elements to form a single margin; the larger margin wins.
3. Shorthand property - combining values of multiple properties in a single property.
4. Display property - block, inline, none, and inline-block.

Cheers to consistency! grin

I know I'm a lil bit late D!

I just didn't finish early this time, it seems the deeper I go, the higher the difficulty. grin

So I learned the following:
1. How to use the list style property.
2. The use of calc function.
3. Text-align property.
4. Vertical align property.
5. How to style anchor tags using its own special class name i.e adding a after the original class name.

See ya!
Re: Diary Of An Aspiring Software/web Developer by MirthOsas(m): 11:32pm On Aug 08, 2021

I literally went over the summary of everything I've learned so far today; played around with HTML and got my hands dirty in trying to make sensible use of the html and CSS that I have learned.

I successfully created a navigation bar. cool cool

We go again tomorrow. smiley

Hey Diary, I got some little time off work today and decided to practice some more.

I created another navigation bar, which I shared on codepen. Tried replicating the header section of NetNaija, here's the link: https://codepen.io/MirthOsas/pen/KKmbrGz

Didn't pay attention to to the contents of the page but on the navigation bar (header section).
Cheers to progress. grin grin
