Update (The One with the References)

Moving forward as a single person instead of as a pair is going to change a few things, good and bad.  Maybe I won’t have someone on the same track to bounce my crazier ideas off but, if I’m honest, I think the other workers will come to love such a charming personality spouting ridiculous ideas.

And then there was one (comings and going)…

So a lot has happened since my last post.  It's been an interesting and at times tempestuous period... certainly more so than usual.

Firstly, there was the not insignificant issue of several feet of water cascading into the office on the 3rd of December.  Whilst we were not alone in being affected and I believe we coped well given the hand we were dealt it was certainly an experience I would not want to repeat any time soon.  

Map Overlay via API

Hello again, readers of the Antelle blog

There has been a lot going on since our last blog posts. Ben and I were tasked with creating a map overlay that programmatically integrated with an online API. We have also been preparing for our first Microsoft exam, “Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3”, which is our first step to becoming a MCSD.

The horrors of browser compatibility

We had stumbled into the trap of browser compatibility. There was a problem with our main body of the website, we wanted a specific effect, as we were replicating the exact layout of the website that we were updating. The desired effect was one of a purple rectangle, inside that, a white rectangle, slightly smaller, and inside that, another purple rectangle to be the main body content, once again, slightly smaller. To achieve this look we created the first purple rectangle, then another purple rectangle, smaller than the first with a white border. To do this, we used this kind of layout:

Colour Picker and Wordsearch Generation

It’s been 4 weeks since the last blog post and we've been busy again.  

I've completed two projects over that period in between pluralsight sessions in preparation for my first run at a Microsoft Exam.  A Wordsearch generator and a neat little colour picker.

Consuming APIs and Martial Arts of Databases

It’s been a while, since then quite a bunch has happened.  Let’s start with the good stuff.  Our latest Web Design task was to create something “cool”.  This something cool had a few conditions, the first was that it had to make use of an API, the other condition was it had to consume data from an Endpoint.

One month in

So it’s the fourth week that I’ve been working with Antelle, the past 4 weeks seem to have gone by in a flash of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. In the three weeks since I last posted a lot has happened in regards to training, much has been learned, and I feel like I’m settling down into the office and getting used to the environment.

Pluralsight and Javascript

Published by Ben on Sept 21, 2015 at 10:17am

Since the last blog post things have definitely moved quickly again.  It’s been just over two weeks and the pace has slowed slightly since last time.  We had another task and another deadline.  Similar to being thrown at HTML and CSS with our responsive design templates we were set for a crash course in JavaScript in order to validate an HTML form.  Most of this was simply checking if there was indeed something written in some text boxes.
