This Week in Coding: #017

Soooo I’ve been slowly chipping away at this project and I’m proud to announce I have a working version I think I can re-purpose for another project (the project this whole thing started for). I gotta admit, at some point I started wondering why I was bothering with this whole thing, mostly because I used …

This Week in Coding: #016

For the past week was incredible in terms in progress. I was wired and super excited to get through the work required for each of the requirements I established for my static site generator. Yes I’m using a lot of plugins and configuring them is no easy task. Anyway, I’ve enjoyed the progression but I …

This Week in Coding: #015

I’ve spent more time than I’m comfy sharing just reading this week. I also spent a lot of time working on my static site generator which I would like to wrap up no later than April. I’m tracking my progress in a Markdown file, which I pushed to a public github repo last week. Heading …

This Week in Coding: #014

This week I spent mostly recovering for a mysterious bug that knocked me out, but I did find time to catch up on reading and complete some laptop configuration stuff.

I’m actually on PTO and this post is being typed from in the beautiful St. Croix… I may not come back! But I did find time to catch up on some of my tech reading. I have so many things bookmarked and saved away and honestly I’m sure I won’t get to a lot of …

This Week in Coding: #012

For the first time in years I took almost 2 weeks off from my day job. It felt so short but it was long enough to completely ruin my daily routines: my coding practices, writing plans, and sleep schedule. I’m slowly getting back to that routine. So what I thought would be a 2-week break …

Browsersync setup on Windows Ubuntu (WSL)

I called myself spending maybe 1 -2 hours after work trying to learn CSS Grid and instead found myself in WSL hell trying to get my local CSS Grid learning environment identical to the instructors – SMH. For anyone using Wes Bos’s CSS Grid course who is also on a Windows 10 machine and using …

Notes on CSS Grid Garden

I originally took this course back in May 2017 but for some weird reason, never published my notes, which I found while attempting to empty my drafts. Decided to unleash them into the universe. Enjoy! I originally thought I would design Akudo.Codes using the new CSS Grid features so I wanted to familiarize myself with …
