A little while ago I enrolled to CS50W class by Harward University on edx. As always I got caught up with something else in my life and dropped out from the class. In 2020 I decided education is one of top priorities in my life, plus my class ends in mid 2020.
I watched few lectures and me being in tech already makes a bit earthier to pick up certain things, started so called project 0.
There is few things I like about Visual Studio:
Emmet support. I’m sure most of front end developers heard about Emmet, but for me coming from Test Automation it was interesting discovery.
VS Code plugins. I mostly use two plugins: 1. LiveServer – webpage reload, which gives you the opportunity to see the changes right away (I believe there is similar option in PyCharm) 2. Prettier – Code formatter – to format the code and make all ugly things I typed in look prettier.
In the project we also told to utilize Bootstrap 4, the framework which makes average Joe without design vision (like myself) a guru of styling.
We also asked to use media queries so the project can adopt to mobile screen, in my project I applied it for navigation menu and once the page shrinks down the menu items stuck one on another.
Even though there is lots of things explained in the class, I still had to use w3schools resources to understand how things work and get an idea of what can be done to solve certain problem.
In conclusion my project 0 is not the best piece of art, but it does what requirements asked. Hope it will get approved.
Update: it got approved and I got Score 1/1 which basically 100 for this project.
