I’ve decided to migrate away from WordPress in the new year. I’ve gone back and forth about this and played with several options such as a headless WordPress option.
In part one of this series, I outlined my recent motivations for leveling up my HTML/CSS layout skills as I prepare for a site redesign. This post highlights layouts 4 through 7 and contains screenshots and brief process overviews.
Last Saturday (June 23, 2018) I decided to start actively practicing my UI/layout skills. I’ve been working on a site redesign as I migrate to Gatsby and I wanted to use this period to level up my CSS skills before deciding on a new look. I’ve used CSS Grid and Flexbox here and there over the last year, but I wanted to become more fluent. As this coincided with a desire to redesign my site, I figured it was a good time to dive in.
If you’ve read any of my recent posts, talked to me in person about web development/attended Homebrew Website Club Baltimore, or follow me on Twitter you’ve seen me proclaim how much I enjoy using Gatsby. This reflection highlights some of the points along my learning journey leading to this point.
I haven’t been keeping up with my logs because I’ve been working on lots of projects! I wanted to take a moment and write a quick post about my experiences learning ReactJS.
The Past Few Weeks Well, I’ve fallen out of sync of updating and I’m now feeling the pains of having to recall everything I’ve worked on since my update 16 (!) days ago.
Last Two Weeks After the last Homebrew Website Club Baltimore meetup I said that I was going to make sure to get back on track for documenting my learning every few days.
Learning Log: Sunday February 18 and Monday February 19, 2018 As mentioned in the previous post, I wanted to return to my writing workflow of taking daily notes on active learning pursuits in my live notebook and then refining into somewhat longer articles.
