This week I started my first class @AustinCodingAcademy on building back-ends with restAPI servers with Node, Express & SQL.
When creating webpages are apps, it is important to visualize what the end result should look like, before you start any coding. Sketching out the basic layout is key. It is also a great idea to create test plans for any code you are developing before you start. Basically make sure you know what outcome you are looking to create, before you start.
During my journey I have also ran into problems with code working on my computer, but then not working on github. A good example is VScode will typically find your images or other files if you do not type folder locations 100% correct in your code, but then when you load it to a server like github the files can't be found.
VScode has been my favorite text editor. I am starting to try others, but so far the features in VScode have been great. Items like changing the settings to re-align your code every time you save your code. This is a tip one of the tutors showed me.
As I am going through these classes @AustinCodingAcademy I am also subscribing and watching other YouTube series. We are often introduced to different series in our class text. MPJ is one that we were exposed to, and that I enjoy. He has a great personality and I like his tag line of “Stay Curious”. Till next week, stay safe.
