Project Euler

Reading Time: 1 minute

Project Euler is a series of math/programming related challenges. To aid in my programming ability and logical thinking, I have decided to try completing these questions.

By no means, are my solutions the best way to answer the questions. I am just completing them my own way to challenge myself and to work out the solutions the best I can. Later on, I may revisit some of the older problems with a better method in my eyes.

Below is a picture from their site of the up to date number of solved challenges.

freeCodeCamp

Reading Time: 1 minute

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.

Cloudflare

Reading Time: 1 minute

I recently went and started using Cloudflare on some of my websites. Even with the recent news of “Cloudbleed”, I am still willing to trust them. The following quote basically sums up my thoughts about them.

…it’s that Cloudflare stopped the bug within 44 minutes of finding out about it and fixed the problem completely within 7 hours.

Within 1 hour of being told about the bug, they fixed it. I started using their service after this bug was fixed. I wasn’t using it sooner because I didn’t think my small sites needed their service, but now I am giving it a try.
