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 slowly returning to my JavaScript refresher activities. I’ve actually managed to sort through some of my endless FireFox bookmarks to filter out some of …

This Week in Coding: #013

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 …

When deep learning becomes deep distractions

A few years ago I bought a book called Deep Work and loved it. A lot of the ideas shared in the book were part of my mindset but I needed the reinforcement. This post is not about that book, but it is about what sometimes happens when I apply the principles of the book …

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 …

This Week in Coding: #011

It has been a minute since I’ve done this but it is time to ramp back up. I love learning new stuff so I don’t think I could ever phase out this series of blog posts. I also like to keep track of everything I’m doing, especially when it is time to do a retrospective. …

Reintroducing …. myself

Sooo I took a long unexpected break from this site and so many other projects. I neglected this site I created during a time when I was struggling to manage work responsibilities and life, which sucks because this site was conceived as a way to get me to the next phase of my career and …

What have I been up to?

My last post was not an update post. It was more like a “Hey I’m back and I’ve been working on a bunch of stuff behind the scenes” kind of post. This is an actual update post where I share what’s been happening in my “programming life” and beyond since the last time I provided …

New site, who dis?

It has been so long since I’ve properly blogged and so much has happened during this super long break. I purchased this new domain at the start of the month just because I liked the idea of separating my programming notes on learning, etc from my portfolio and potential client-focused site. I’ve been doing a …
