Hey y'all!

I really just jumped into the challenge, as I've been trying to start a blog and can't decide what topic to focus on, and also want to build my social media presence (a little gun-shy there :-/). So here goes:

  • Tutorial: Make your own VSCode theme and Publish!

    Explicit, step-by-step instruction with plenty of screenshots along the way make this really approachable. The GUI tool is still in development, so it might be a little buggy, tho...

  • Explainer: Do you really understand interfaces?

    The author's irreverent humor hooked me here, especially since I've been trying to figure out interfaces in Java for months! Well organized, and laser-focused: He avoids going off on tangents and explains exactly what he intends to.

  • Project: How I Built and Deployed My First Web Application with Django in 5 Weeks.

    I really liked how he broke down the project from conception to completion, and linked the resources he consulted and showed all the stages. There's not a lot of code examples, but it's a high-level overview and really shows the thought process well.

It was great to explore some examples of different approaches, and made me think about the projects I'd like to start!
