Making a Tourism Slideshow With HTML/CSS/JS (Ft. TraversyMedia)

 Video for reference here.

I'm one to encourage good rest over constant work. 

Yet I found myself awake at 2 AM listening to this video by TraversyMedia, because I was suddenly curious about making a full page image carousel.

I wanted to listen before I put hand to keyboard in coding, so at around 3 AM, I pulled up my machine with an idea.


 

I followed the instructions and did most of the code myself. Here, I outline:

  • The changes in my code from the original.
  • The demo mockup (Here)
  • The changes in the new Tourism: Welcome to Babylos! .The images may take a moment to load at first.

The original video code says

.buttons button#next
.buttons button#prev

But the code didn't work! The buttons were still as follows:

 

  • Unstyled
  • At the bottom

So I removed the .buttons part and everything was placed and styled appropriately.

It took a while to get the image to be full screen;

My original code was:

.slide {
    positionabsolute;
    top0;
    left0;
    width100wh;
    height100vw;
    opacity0;
    transition: opactiy 0.5s ease-in-out;
}

Oops - I misspelled 'opacity' in the transition. No wonder it didn't work in the code! 😆 Fixed now!


See width and height? It shouldn't say wh and vw, but 100% for both.

.slide {
    positionabsolute;
    top0;
    left0;
    /* I had w/h as vh and vw and what an issue */
    width100%;
    height100%;
    opacity0;
    transition: opacity 0.5s ease-in-out;
}

Spelling; Achieved 👍🏾


Image-wise, it all comes from my copy of Animal Crossing; New Horizons and editing in Paint.net.

The size of the image around 1600 x 769. The initial images I had were stretched to fit. Some (Marcel's) were easy to resize. 

One (Static's) needed only a small adjustment of the clothing images and no resizing!

 Others (Opal's) was so unusually difficult, as layers began to cross and bleed into each other. I had to remake that one entirely.

In the future, I'll measure twice (or, at all...) and cut once.

Links do not work in the first slide of the show. Not sure why.

I kept going "I'm gonna need another panel". Hence how this grew from 3 small slides to 8. It was very fun, and I'll probably do more 3 AM coding in the future.

Remember: I'm available for consulting, temp roles.

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.  

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H
