Working with code


It has been a really long time since I posted anything on my blog. There have been several reasons as to why. The biggest one is because I was slowly going through a small depression. Not being in school and not reading/learning about things that I love has effected me to a certain extent. Now, I realize that I can still learn and advance my learning, I just have to use the resources that are at my disposal. Knowing these things and talking about it has helped me realize I can still be happy.

These past weeks I’ve been working five graveyard shifts a week and been trying to work a second job and it hasn’t been the greatest for my mentality. It really has altered the way I act towards everyone. While trying to keep what little sanity I had I was reading about PHP, jQuery and still trying to code my site. I realized that I have been skipping steps in between. I have to develop my process on how I will function and create my sites. Step by step by step.

What is nice is that I am starting to understand how to properly code my site. The things that I have to now think about is what elements will be interactive. Working with PHP has helped me understand how JavaScript works. Upon reading and viewing tutorials on jQuery I am slowly starting to understand how it all synchronizes to create a really good user experience. My next journey into web developing will be using AJAX on my projects. Learning how to implement it will be such a great experience. It may very well strain my eyes at first but I know this is going to be a great skill down the road.

I feel like I still have a lot to learn and I a lot to take in but that won’t deter me from achieving what I want to achieve. I know there will be several obstacles that I will have to overcome but in time I should be able to overcome those.
