Another 100 days
Having completed another 100 days of code, it's a good time to look back and see what I did and what I learnt during that time.
I did two Frontend Mentor challenges: Accordion and IP Address Tracker.
I learnt Webpack one afternoon and then used it on the IP Address Tracker. I'd hardly used APIs, so this one was a good one to use it on, since it involved a couple of them.
I discovered CSS Battle. Watching some videos of devs doing the same challenges was useful for learning the different ways of doing the same thing. I then spent a lot of time distracting myself with various challenges on there.
A third of the way into my 100 days I'd learnt about intersection observer, and set about using it with infinite scroll. With some more practising with APIs, so I could load an infinite number of cat photos.
After working through a tutorial I started on a project. It was supposed to be for trying out all the flashy things I'd seen with CSS and the intersection observer. And then I discovered that a multi-page website would be easier with React and ended up writing the whole thing with React - and learning a lot of React in the process.
I also re-learnt about unit/integration/e2e testing - I thought I'd understood what to test. I think I understand it now!
Around 40 days later, that site was done. And I got on with the business of completing the projects to get the FreeCodeCamp Front End Libraries certification.
In summary, this 100 days I have learnt:
- HTML details/summary tags
- More CSS
- Intersection Observer
