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.
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.
