3 Days Before The Start of Recurse and My Third Day of JS30 With Wes Bos
I do have to say it can be a lot to watch a full 2 hours not being familiar with the concepts he lays out, so here are some shorter videos, helpful links, and interactive content touching on some of those concepts (to be updated as I continue)
- Web Dev Simplified CSS Flexbox 15 Min Tutorial
- Web Dev Simplified CSS Grid 20 Minute Tutorial
- W3Schools Position Property
- FreeCodeCamp Interactive Learning For Responsive Web Design (aka html elements, basic css, html forms)
Finally before writing this blog post, I did day 3 of Wes Bos’s JS30 and it was an enjoyable way to end my programming for the day. Day 3 is working with CSS variables and using them to live update spacing, color, and blur on the webpage (and the concept expands into anything on site). On top of Wes’s implementation of grabbing values from the input and updating the base, I was able to use the localStorage variable I learned from the 2 hour Dennis Ivy video to keep the input states persistent even when the website is reloaded which added a nice touch. I’m thinking of adding these interactive elements to the final portfolio site I end up putting together.
