Thursday Thanks

To learn more about Web Design, I’m:

  • Completing the Udemy course “Build Modern Responsive Website with HTML, CSS3 & Bootstrap” by Irfan Dayan. ($10 – a steal!)
  • Continuing to practice my skills using the Brackets code editor.
  • Playing around on the Lrn app whenever I have a free moment.
  • Listening to the Code Newbie podcast.

Thursday Thanks

This is a post where I share appreciations for people and resources I’ve come across. This field forces folks to be resourceful and explore on your own, which is ultimately a great thing, but it can be frustrating. When you discover someone or a resource that helps you, it’s an incredible feeling.

1. Code Newbie Podcast, Episode 122

“Don’t write code that violates the public’s trust.” This was a powerful podcast episode for me. The guest (Bill Sourour) talks about how programmers should think about the potential consequences of their code (whether explicit or implicit). It’s easy and tempting to go into “code monkey” mode, but we should also abide by our morals and ethics and contribute to a broader conversation about ethics in the field.
