A lot of people – most, really – can’t write code. In the new millennium, this is no longer a normal thing – being able to handle any sort of technical job, from fixing some HTML to delving into and contributing to an open-source project, is a desirable trait in anyone, especially those looking for work! So how do you go about learning it if you can’t afford a course or you’re not really into the idea of leafing through a textbook?
The great thing about it is that it’s aimed at the total beginner. All you do is type, and the clear instructions will explain what you’re doing and why you’re doing it, giving you small objectives to accomplish. Sounds like a textbook job, right? Wrong. You also get points and win badges as you go along, which can be a really great way to keep yourself motivated when things get tricky.
So far I’ve tested it in Google Chrome and Internet Explorer 8, and it works a lot better in IE8 than JS Bin does, so I might have found a replacement for JS Bin. Furthermore there is also support for testing AJAX requests.
Oh man my desktop is a mess, once again, I can’t believe it! I try to keep it clean, but sometimes my downloads control me, and yeah well, then it’s just easier to put it on the desktop, my Eeec’s desktop is chaos.
In the past I cleaned up once or twice on my old laptop simply by moving everything to a folder called “Must clean-up”, didn’t help much, before long I had a folder called “Must clean-up part II”.
Anyway during my recent look-at-and-throw-away session I came across another sketch I made with Harmony:
I haven’t had much time to learn much about HTML5 but here the other day I came across Chrome Experiments which contains a lot of small to larger experiments utilizing HTML5 features.
The site is awesome and there is a lot of inspiration to gather from the experiments. I tried out a few, and will return again later, with the Harmony experiment I created the following sketch in few minutes, so much fun.
