I am a self-taught and part time coder and only really code over the odd weekend or evening when the bug bites. My skills are getting better but i am still very new to this.
I started as a youngster back in the days of Geocities and then moved onto WordPress which isn’t coding but it is a stepping stone on the path to web developer. I am still playing around in the front-end single page sites. I will keep honing my skills before moving onto a framework and full-stack.
Apart from these I have a long list of sites that I would like to build. I will hopefully start getting to these soon.
A JAMStack site using NODE.JS, Eleventy and Netlify. Full build process automated through GITHUB. Still need to add relevant API’s.
A fun small project using CSS and a bit of HTML. I was fascinated that a heart in CSS is effectively 3 squares (well one square with the before and after pseaudo class!). I loved the idea of the three separate elements coming together to form a heart and it felt a bit like a ‘love story’.
This was built as a tool for paddlers to calculate their pace – similar to timedistancepace.com. This is a simpler version but is slightly difference because it deals with speed(km/h) rather than pace(min/km).
(Discontinued) A website aiming to be “Facebook for horse riders”. I used WordPress. I ended up discontinuing this due to the project being way too big for my ability – I got it up and running with the help of WordPress but I was too far removed from the code to be able to do anything meaningful.
(Discontinued) A website aimed at introducing non-techie people to the world of eSorts. I used WordPress. Discontinued as I didn’t know enough about eSports myself and would rather spend the time learning to code than learning about the subject I’m supposed to be an “expert” in.
Apart from web development i have done a SQL course on Udemy and am currently getting my head around Python using DataCamp.
