One of the most important lessons that JS30 is teaching me is the problem solving approach. Today, for example, I wasn’t able to smoothly solve the problem. I was able to solve it, but in a WET (Writing Every Time) way. When I saw the solution—and the same happened to me yesterday—something clicked in my brain, an “oh!” or “aha!” moment. What I solved in dozens of lines could’ve been solved in less than 20. I think that is an important skill and I feel like I’m developing it.
On Building Projects:
There’s still work to do regarding my weekly personal projects. I’m still working on my first website which should be done by tomorrow. Today I finished all the of the styling, added some animations, and started working on mobile responsiveness. I guess the next ones will come more natural and perhaps will take me less time. I can’t wait to migrate the LoF out of WordPress and start building my portfolio.
Today was really more work on understanding and continuing to familiarize myself with grid. Tomorrow I think I’ll refactor all grid code lines into the simple yet amazingly simple “grid: “ property line, to begin making peace with it. One doubt I do have is when is it more convenient to use an image as a div background image or as an
<img> in the HTML.
