Jan – March 2018!

I am determined to get into a rhythm with blogging – it WILL happen!

Udacity Android Basics


In the last few months I have finally started noticing bits of progress I’m making on my programming journey. I’m working through a couple of different online courses, studying some random bits on the side and every now and then I have a moment where I realise I understand more and am able to breeze through some of the course content which is reassuring as it really does feel like nothings going in sometimes 😅

So things I’m working through currently are:

👩🏼‍💻 Udacity Android Developer basics course –> https://classroom.udacity.com/courses/ud834

I am LOVING this course so far! Really easy to follow and you get stuck into building a single page layout straight away! There is a free version and a nanodegree version and I’m just working through the free part! 5 sections in total make up the full course and it goes on to cover, user input, multipage apps, networking and data storage but along the way you learn so much more – basic programming skills like how to google, what to search for, how to know which links are reliable etc, obvious to some but handy to a lot of newbies getting into coding!


👩🏼‍💻 I’m also meeting up with some work friends once a week and we’re working through an Udemy Nuxt/VueJS course –> https://www.udemy.com/nuxtjs-vuejs-on-steroids/

If you’re not familiar with Nuxt or VueJS, get to know! I’ve not had a lot of experience with Javascript frameworks so this has been a bit daunting, not gonna lie, but I can see how it is a great way building websites via reusable components and Nuxt just packages everything together nice and easy for you.

I’m considering rebuilding this site in Nuxt/VueJS using Google’s Firebase hosting which I also got introduced to recently –  but thats another project for another day 😀


👩🏼‍💻 Another area I’ve been studying is WordPress themes.

I know people work almost solely on becoming a WordPress developer and whilst it’s not my aim to go too specific, I’d like to have an understanding of how themes are built as it’s something that could be quite fun to work on as well!
