This week I was supposed to continue working with CSS. I finished all of the Little Web Huts last week and so watched a different video instead. I learn better by watching and listening rather than just reading. Ben in our class also shared the sites: materializecss.com and bootstrap css to use in the future.
I watched a youtube video on creating responsive websites with HTML and CSS.

    I learned how to make a header with a picture and a navigation bar and a footer.
    I styled the background color and font colors.
    I styled with margins and padding.
    It is also a responsive site.

It was a lot of code and time, but I feel like I accomplished and learned so much!
There were times when my code wasn’t working because I forgot a semi-colon or didn’t have the correct capitalizations. I am realizing how easy it is to forget something small like that and how it affects everything. Keeping your coding clean with indenting makes a big difference when double checking things. I am going to be changing the next steps on my learning contract to add php.

I would give myself a 10/10.

I watched all the CSS Tutorials from Little Web Hut and some others as outlined on my learning contract. We are working on styling our repository prototype. I learned how to change font type & style-bold,center,etc; padding, border, and margin areas. I also learned about using an external css stylesheet as well as imbedding in with HTML. Someone shared with me this website: http://materializecss.com/. I’d like to use this in the future for more styling. I would give myself a 10/10 because I followed my Learning Contract and applied it to my project.

Step 2

Last week I watched all of the HTML tutorials. This week I have started watching CSS tutorials. To start, McKay and I decided that we want to map out the webpages in google docs. Then we can start writing the HTML code and inserting the content. The google doc I submitted on Canvas shows the beginning of our paper prototyping. I would give myself a 10/10. However, I need to change my Learning Contract to include php.
