I’ve never been the biggest at getting a UI up and running. I’d like to be able to figure out better design but it’s not my strong area. I’m going to need to figure out a good login page, and some form of dashboard (which may take from multiple examples online). Login should be the easy one, might get something up and running for that kind of soon, will be using SASS for this so that will involve some learning. Once I get to the dashboard, that will be fun, I’ve found one I semi like the look of it, or at least aspects, example.
Back-end development always been more my thing but after seeing some people work with getting a layout up and running it does interest me. My biggest thing is to make sure it’s responsive design…
Oh well, until tomorrow.
So my first task now after my database is semi set up, start learning Gulp and Mocha. I want to be able to do TDD and 100% coverage (if possible). I feel this will be a good way to work on a project. After watching a stream where a guy always does 100% coverage of his projects it has me super interested in the process. And this will be using SQL based database for the project. We will see how this goes, so far I am working on a Gulp File to do the initial getting set up. Once I get that set up I will start doing Mocha/TDD and getting my tests thought about, it hasn’t been easy been so busy with classes.
Well homework is always first step, but the first step toward actually getting something programmed….wow finally…. for me has been working on the database. I’m currently writing from scratch the SQL for creating the database and linking up the tables as need be. Not an easy task but shockingly I enjoy doing it. These couple classes are taking way more time than I expected though. I get some time at work to work on making scripts and learning Python while I have to for the project at work anyways.
Home life has been busy to say the least. Tearing apart a bedroom, working on homework, doing things around the house, and just trying to relax (wait, that exists) has been more tiring than I could have imaged. Lately homework has been getting done at about 10 at night once the wife goes to bed. It is making for long restless nights due to stress. Oh well hope it changes soon. With summer right around the corner time is going to be even shorter with taking care of my son and getting as much done around the house before the next child enters the world. Oh well, I think I’m ready for bed when I start to nod off at the keyboard….
So classes have started up again so my time has become shorter than it already was. Hopefully I can keep myself ahead of the curve and get some extra time to work on some coding. I’ve set up a virtual machine with Atom and Ubuntu 16.04 so I can do some Python work on it. I know I need to find time now because once new baby comes, my life will be so busy that the thought of coding may just be out the door for some months. Focusing right now on my homework has even been a task itself lately.
