I worked on some of the Free Code Camp challenges today. I am really thankful that the amazing people at Free Code Camp updated some of the earlier HTML/CSS sections, in addition to adding a ton of new content. Up until now, I had no idea that CSS variables were even a thing. From what I can tell, they are a relatively new thing and are part of the reason for the existence of Sass. Still, I can’t tell you how happy I am to learn something new that is going to be extremely helpful in the future.
I ran into my first issue with Free Code Camp as I was working on the Applied Visual Design section. It’s not really a big deal since I knew with 100% certainty that it was a bug and not something I had done. Someone else had the same problem and asked for help in the forums, so I checked GitHub and saw that it had already been reported. So, I just moved on and will go back and do that challenge later after the issue is resolved.
I am going to keep working through these exercises as I watch the rest of the NBA Finals game. I don’t know how much more I’ll get done tonight, but I am enjoying what I am learning/practicing.
In case anyone is interested in the project I was working on yesterday, I decided to post a screenshot to show you what it does. Essentially, I enter information about the color palettes (color codes, names, photographer, URL, etc.) and it takes that information, compiles it into HTML/CSS code, and displays that in the console so I can quickly copy and paste the information to a new Color Inspiration blog post. It’s not pretty or fancy, but it works and it’s extremely helpful. I knocked out 3-4 posts last night in about the time it normally takes to do one.
