Keeping the streak alive

My power went out

I had no power for the better half Wednesday so naturally I didn't manage to get in any sort of significant coding done. So does that mean I have to start the 100daysOfCode all over? Who makes the rules anyway. I ended up deciding not to count Wednesday and keeping the streak going.

The Front-end πŸ‘¨β€πŸŽ¨

I wonder why the body of a website doesn't start in the corner of the page. I got around it by setting the margin of the body to 0 but I just don't understand why it wouldn't be in the corner by default.

I've done a lot of thinking about whether I should use a CSS framework to speed up the development of the photography website that I'm building. One the one hand I really enjoy making custom CSS. On the other, what takes me about an hour to make a hamburger menu icon with pure CSS takes 2 lines of code with semantic UI. One line for importing the CDN and the other is the HTML element with a classname corresponding to the name of the icon. I think the best decision right now is to use the frameworks for icons and the animations, layouts and media queries using pure CSS. I know how they work but I always forget their syntax so I want to get in the habit of using them without having to look up the syntax.

The Back-end πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

How cool is it that I have a back-end section. I'm just geeking out. I'm so excited to learn NodeJs. The course that I'm doing has challenges at the end of each videos and I've been crushing them. Its not my first time learning NodeJs though.

Review of 100daysOfCodes

What I love about this challenge is the support you get from the community. The automatic retweets, the high levels of engagements, the random strangers rooting for you to finish πŸ˜‚ It's pretty hard not to love this community. If I had known this earlier I would have done the #100daysofCodes challenge ages ago. I think the best part of the challenge is seeing other people learning and being able to relate and connect with them on the challenges that the typical newbie goes through. Its nice to know someone else has gone through this and my frustrations is normal.

The past week has honestly been one of my better ones. Could have done more, could have done less but I'm just happy with being consistent. As always, thanks for the read and Happy CodingπŸ’»!
