100 Days of Learning - Days 2 and 3

Hello everyone, welcome to my #100DaysOfLearning challenge. I started this post on 12/30/21 with Day 2 and forgot to wrap up and post it, so here's Days 2 and 3 together.

My learning goals today are:

  • For Day 2,
    • Complete section 25 "Introducing the World of the DOM" in Colt Steele's Web Developer Bootcamp course
    • Review FCC frontend projects and start one
  • For Day 3,
    • Keep making progress on section 25 (somehow my progress wasn't saved from my last session, so I'm reviewing lessons I already watched)
    • Complete the HTML for the Survey Form project

What I completed:

  • For Day 2,
    • I made progress on section 25 of the Udemy course
    • I started the Survey Form project HTML- link to CodePen
  • For Day 3,
    • I made progress on the Survey Form project HTML
    • I made progress on section 25. I remember watching more of the lessons than were marked off in Udemy, but it doesn't hurt to review the material again. -UPDATE: I was accidentally watching a different course by the same author that covers similar material LOL. Still it was a good review :)

What I learned:

  • Introduction to click events and addEventListener()
  • getAttribute() and setAttribute()
  • Re-familiarized myself with HTML forms

My goals for next time:

  • Figure out how to turn these posts into a series here on DEV (is that something I can only do with the jekyll front matter? I'm using the rich text editor...)
  • Settle on a convention so these posts are more consistent
  • Wrap up the Survey Form project html + css
  • Work through section 25 and complete the section code-along

Colt Steele is a great teacher so you are on the right track.

It's very important to keep the motivation and be persistent to finish what you have started.

There should be various resources online if you get stuck or you may prolly ask/post a question on your learnings as well. Good luck!

Thank you so much for the encouragement! The hardest part so far has been finishing the courses I start, I'm determined to see this one through to the end.

I'm not entirely sure! I think I'll see what catches my interest as I go through the course. I'm learning SQL for work, and I'd like to get a deeper understanding of backend development, but I'll get clearer on what I want to focus on as I learn more.
