Hello there my lovely readers.
In my last entry I mentioned we were working with CSS in our “RIA” class.
On Wednesday we delivered the final result, and I can show you what my stylesheet looked like during the process.
As you can see, it’s not very pretty. I started out playing around with colors basically, and I spent a lot of time on w3schools.com reading and testing out different things. Cyanine was a lot better at testing things out on her own pages, and did a lot of different stylesheets. Karl Jørgen has a lot of experience building websites and playing with CSS so he did his thing very quickly. I hate to visualize things, so my way of working was more directed towards learning things through the W3-tutorials than actually trying things out on my own pages. When I realized what I wanted to do with my page, I started to fill in “the blanks” to create what I envisioned MIGHT look cool. In the end all our stylesheets turned out pretty great and we are very proud of ourselves ;)
A lot of creds to the people that created all the free stuff I found on the big web. (Background and header pattern, baroque-victorian-style icons)
I learned that HTML and CSS can be pretty fun, and I kinda regret that I haven’t bothered to learn this before. Why do I have to be so stubborn and lazy? Why? WHY?
This week we started on PHP, a programming language that has been called “simple” and “easy to learn”. Well I hate it and I don’t understand a sh**! I’ve spent like 6 hours trying to learn how to code the English days over to Norwegian. I got it right today though but it still pisses me off. I kinda miss C#, even though it’s also a pain to learn and figure out.
I’m aware that this isn’t actually game-related in any way but it’s part of our education so I kinda have to blog about this. We’re all excited to see what our project-class have in store for us but that’s not until the midst of March. So hang in there! We are!! :)
