What I’ve made
We’ve made some pretty cool stuff already. We finished yesterday afternoon by making a project that linked to an API. It was only afterwards that I realised the API was in fact Image of the Day, so we’d have to wait 24 hours for it to refresh..
Still we were pretty happy with the final result and we had fun using CSS and animations to create the mini site.To practice fetching API’s I created a site that generates Kanye West quotes too. Yes, it’s as entertaining as it sounds. See it on Twitter.
I also managed to make a very basic tip calculator using a function and if/else statement.
Another of the major highlights is getting to be in Digbeth everyday.
Here’s some pictures of my favourite street art.
All in all I am having a really good time at School of Code. It hasn’t been without its ups and downs of course, including moments of extreme doubt and insecurity. However, I am really glad I made the decision to leap into the Tech world and am so grateful for this opportunity.
Sorry for the short post, I need to get back to coding..
