Now that we’ve wrapped up the class and I have been able to take a moment to reflect on everything we learned, the trials, the tribulations, the blood, sweat, tears, even shingles diagnosis, I’m really happy I took this class. In looking to the future, I am looking forward to taking some time off from school, class, and code. On Monday, I finished my Capstone class, and I feel pretty brain dead.
With that being said, I don’t want to let Three Cheers Four Food or my new coding skills go to waste! First, I paid for both–to learn and to host the site. Second, I think it’s a pride thing right now. So, below is my plan for the next six months for continuing to learn code and update my site.
[Take a two-week break to do more reflecting and mostly to sleep! This time will be used to give my brain a break from the work and school life, and let myself get reenergized for what’s to come!]
Month 1-2: Refresh myself on the following languages:
- I want to focus on these three languages because they are the languages that I primarily used in the development of my site.
Month 3-4: Start website updates:
- There were several comments that my classmates made about updates I could make to my site and I want to be able to do complete these. These include:
- Updating the navigation bar
- updating the colors and fonts for the custom post types
- revisiting the custom post type code and getting the information to echo
- adding pictures to my recipe page
- creating a plan for content creation
- for this, I have a personal plan of doing weekly updates.
- Continue learning new languages. I’m interested in learning more about Python as it’s a commonly used language that I’ve heard the web developers use at work.
In conclusion, as hard as the semester was, I don’t want to lose the skills that I’ve gained over the semester. I like the challenge and I think that now that I have more time that I’ll be able to dedicate myself (and with a different mindset). Like learning a new language, you have to practice or you’ll lose everything you’ve learned. SO, that’s my plan! I hope that my classmates can hold me to it.
And here are some pictures of my cat, because she’s magical (Sorry they’re blurry, it’s Apple’s fault):
