I first came across freeCodeCamp late last year while trying to find another resource to help learn for a project I have been planning, but now I am getting more into using the site to learn. Currently, I am on challenge 119 on their roadmap to learning.

Some of what I am learning is a refresher but a lot of the material is new to me. In my experience, I haven’t been a big user of jQuery and advanced CSS. Most of my experience has come from HTML and PHP. Most of the design work was usually completed by someone else.

I have recently been told to get more involved in the open source community and for me to get more involved I need to learn more code to help in other ways other than support and documentation.

Here’s to completing some of my projects in the coming weeks/months, so I can share them with you.

As I sit here and watch the 89th Academy Awards and go over my movie list, I notice that I would change a few movies on my list of ones to watch.

I am one of those movies goers that stays till the end of the credits regardless of if there is a part of the movie after it. I do this because there is a lot of work that goes into creating a movie and I want to acknowledge everyone’s work via the credits. It is just a small token of appreciation.

I just wish there was more appreciation for the behinds the scenes work done for the film industry.

2MASS J23062928-0502285

The study of the stars and space has always fascinated me.

Earlier today, there was an announcement about 4 more exoplanets being found near TRAPPIST-1 also known as 2MASS J23062928-0502285. The fact that some of those have the potential to be in a habitable zone makes this discovery great. Knowing that there is a possibility that there could be other life out there.

In the future, one of my planned purchases is a telescope to be better able to see what is out there.

Unfortunately, I am unable to witness the next Solar eclipse on February 26, 2017.
