Javascript Resources

Happy New Year! I'm learning JavaScript and want to share some resources. Most of these are about understanding vanilla JavaScript, like this 30 Projects in 30 Days course I'm working through.

I'm using Visual Studio Code for Mac to compile my codes.

FreeCodeCamp has many resources in video, which is what I prefer:

This particular one is more of a working model, using JSON to store values from webpages.

Here is one that really starts you from the beginning. Still working through this one.

CodeAcademy is possibly the best I have come across so far, though I believe the JavaScript course may be Pro only - I'm using a free trial, so we shall see  It's available freely too, though you don't get the real world projects (I've done them, they're pretty easy).

This Udemy's JavaScript Essentials works a lot more with snippets in the console of Chrome.

Of course, you can always pop around on GitHub, StackOverflow and read some questions. And Twitter is a good place too - Check out Javascript Digest.

I like the SoloLearn course for Python and CSS and HTML more than the one for JavaScript, but it isn't bad and a good place to get some quick reminders. I still have other videos I have yet to look at and try.

FreeCodeCamp.org has over 1000 mini tutorials for Javascript.

EMPLOYERS: This is me sharing notes and putting new skills into practice.

Azure Networking Options - Core Cloud Services

I have done a lot of AWS things on here. Time to give Azure some attention. After all, since employers don't think Cisco or COMPTIA certifications are important, maybe Microsoft ones are?

First, let's really think about why these are the two biggest cloud services providers in the world:

They've been doing internet things for a long time.Amazon launched in 1995, a virtual bookstore.
Microsoft, well, you know. 

They've lived, breathed, and frankly, created, infrastructure that we use today, that they're selling to us today. Of course the Store of Everything and the Company of Everything would encourage us to put everything in their hands.

Also: Azure has a lot less silly names for modules. Important. I appreciate straightforwardness.


I said 'a lot less', not '100% sensible names'

Microsoft has a clear set of Azure Fundamentals that anyone can interact with. Let's talk about networking basics, basically to say, again, "Hi, employers, I have an …

Grace Hopper Celebration 2019 (GHC19)

From Aicha Evans' speech at the Keynote.
September 6th - I receive an email from Anita B Organization, saying "We read your application, we like your website, and here's a free ticket to GHC 2019 in Orlando, Florida!"


After a few more questions, it seemed everything was on the up and up, and so I accepted - and that's what this post is about!

For those who don't know, Grace Hopper Celebration is the largest gathering of Women in Technology in the world.

On a personal note, This is the first trip I've taken without my parents. Sure, they've left me behind to go on vacations, but I've never left them. I was totally worried! But you know what happened?

I met a lot of cool people in Orlando, learned a lot of neat things, and had a blast just walking around airports for upwards of 8 hours.

New Delta Sky Club on Wikimedia I really, really love airports! And I survived.

I know in the past, I've wormed my way out of jobs despite being interested simpl…
