Thanks to CodeNewbie for sharing my last post on the Twitter feed this week! I'm mostly writing these for myself, but am very happy if anything in these posts helps others. Even if it's just to feel not so alone in this coding journey. ❤️
I'm excited to have four weeks (and a few days) of consistent coding under my belt again! It feels really great overall, even though there have been some frustrating moments. (Looking at you, git. 🤦)
I finally finished my vision board!
The hardest part for me was getting the right look. And while I'm still not super in love with it, I do like it and it's fine for now. I used CSS Gradient to fine-tune the radial gradient for the background, which was a huge help. I probably could have spent another 2 or 3 hours trying to find the best font, but am satisfied enough with it as is. I should definitely do some design classes to learn design best practices so I can be better equipped for these sorts of things. Or maybe just put together a grouping of go-to fonts and colors?
I also worked on a Frontend Mentor challenge to replicate a QR Code. You can see my solution compared to the original design. It's not pixel perfect, but I think I did pretty well. It felt great to solve the problem, even if that included having to search for how to get the card for the QR code to be vertically centered. And using code that I don't yet fully grasp - another thing to work on learning!
Have you had a similar experience of catching an error that you didn't see at first because you thought your code must have been wrong, but the code was perfect the whole time and you were just looking in the wrong place or something? I'd love to know I'm not alone in this!
I hope you have a great week!
