  1. Hello everybody! My name is Javier, I moved to the US in my 30's as many immigrants with no money, no english and no family, twenty years later I'm ready to start my new adventure, web development! I have no skills in coding (very basic). I know I will find a lot of knowledge in these forums. Since I was in high school I wanted to work with computers, but never have a chance until now, I love play the guitar and I have an obsession with dominate the Vim text editor (is a personal challenge). My goal is to became a full-stack developer I'm interested in learning HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, Python

  2. So, about the time when covid-19 started it's mean streak, I decided to pursue my goal of a career change, from pre-school teacher to a full-fledged nerd. Through my life I've been a nerd in hiding so to speak, so I figured out, hey! let's give coding a chance! I found udemy.com and started a masterclass in Java... just to bite off more than I could chew. I followed along the course, to about 60% completion before I realized: I'm following blindly, trying to learn something new, but I'm really not learning "anything". I also realized that the tutor had mad skills when it came to Java, but wasn

This was a useful video I found a few weeks ago and I got a lot from it: 17 Sublime Text Shortcuts and Tips The text version he mentions is here: http://GitHub repository: https://github.com/michaelcheng429/17-sublime-text-tip PS: Let's call it 18 tips: 18] Removing a plugin from Sublime text 3: This afternoon I had to do just that and was almost demented until I found the answer below. It's mind-boggling how many people can't answer a simple question like "how can I remove a package from Sublime Text" without getting into a slavering fluster and unleashing lectures they

  14. Hello everyone, I just bought the US$799 mentor program and I am excited to start this journey in 2021. Quick introduction of myself. I am 45 year old, married, two kids, with a mortgage(of course), full time working as a quality manager for a company in the electronic manufacturing sector. During this Covid19, I saw my friends being laid off and out of a job. I myself in the past had been fired a few times which were not performance related. it was not nice. I want to control my life. I want to learn to code for a secondary skills. Work as a freelancer to have side incomes wit

  16. Looking to move from working my engineering job to something that allows me more time for family. Own boss and all that. I really liked the youtube videos and look forward to going through the courses and starting to freelance. While I'm hoping to think of a way to apply domain knowledge I have, I figure it might make sense to see what the demand/need is out there and work on filling it. I'm in southern California, so trying to figure out what is in demand in this area.

  17. That's true re the constant practice, and I like the monastic analogy. The master level of knowledge may be a stretch, or may not, but reaching a level of competence that gives confidence enough to make a living from these skills would be an achievement in itself. I need to pay less attention to external uncertainties too such as Covid, Brexit, and in Scotland the threat of a hostile UK government. This isn't really the place for politics so i'll stop there. One thing I'd like is to get to the end of 2021 and think, well that was a bit too beige.

  18. Yeah, I think it's all about constant practice - which can be tough given there are several coding languages. I've been told that young monks re-read holy texts tons of times in order to memorize them. So, perhaps taking this course once is good, but maybe not enough to reinforce everything to a master degree.

  19. Hello Jim, I understand your frustration. I was able to get through and understand the CRUD basics course. Yeah, 2 months is a pretty rough response time. I assume you've repeated the CRUD course a few times. If you haven't tried this already, I'd put your code in difchecker (https://www.diffchecker.com/) alongside the code you can download from the course. What I do is find a section that is probably giving trouble - it may be small. I'll copy the code I've written, and then copy the correct course code and paste it alongside one another. I tend to do this only af

  20. Hi Hasan, I recently purchased the Web Dev course and I'm happy with it. Prior to Stef's course I wasted a lot of time on various online courses through Youtube, Udemy, and LinkdedIn Learning. I feel Stef has a good way of presenting the material in that he keeps it basic, simple, and easy to understand. Each video is followed by questions to re-enforce the lesson. I also encourage you to take notes while watching the videos. I feel this course is a good way to establish your foundation in HTML, CSS, and Javascript. It has given me the confidence to progress, whereas prior to hi

  22. It's good you asked as there had been something I couldn't quite put my finger on. I like the overall style and the footer is fine, but after a bright clear start with "Hi there, I'm Ryan Van Dyke" it's black all the way to the footer. It's too much darkness. I think keeping an eye on the times we live in is a good idea, and there's a lot of darkness and uncertainty in the air right now, and a lighter tone without being in your face might help to lift the mood. And you've almost got that. Context is important. I remember the old wild west days of the internet when black websites wer

Creating real value for people is what gets me out of bed every morning! Although I've taken some of coding courses and self-learned a bit of programming, I am no authority on the subject. I feel like I know just enough to understand how everything works. However, I find topics of modern tech implementation pretty exciting and I look forward to listening what everyone has to share

I started working on my first free portfolio job which is a Wix site redo and looking for some tips on learning this system to do advanced html and css and js down the road. I'm not really finding too many good sites that provide advanced tactics. It seems most people stay in the Wix templates and don't get into to the code. What I'm looking to do is make the site responsive first and foremost. It looks like it only has two modes which is maximized desktop and mobile. It seems like there needs t

  38. Been away a while, when the state installed a new security software that blocked KillerSites. I don't even touch my laptop anymore, so I have not been in since work blocked it. But it is available again now so I am back. Security has fallen by the wayside as the state entity hamstrung my Divisions attempt at having their own security... me. Now I am back to work as a Programmer and training up in C#, .NET, & Azure, as we finally get away from Java and Oracle. So, as I am no longer doing Security, I will no longer be posting much there. Good to be back!
