Baltimore’s first Homebrew Website Club of 2019 met at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center on January 23rd. Here are the notes from the broadcast portion of the meetup.
Tonight is the first meeting of Homebrew Website Club Baltimore for 2019! My goal for this evening is to write this post updating on how I did for my year-end commitments and some thoughts on what’s to come.
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.
It’s fairly unbelievable how quickly the last half of this year has flown by. Marty reminded me that it’s time again for the end of year commitments. Over the last two years of co-hosting Homebrew Website Club:Baltimore I’ve greatly enjoyed this reflective and goal-setting process.
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.
It’s Been Quite Awhile… As I sit and write during our second May Homebrew Website Club Baltimore meetup I’m struck by the realization that I’ve failed to post to my site in over a month.
