In Practice: Web Development Vol. 6
My God, I can’t seem to keep myself on track. Don’t get me wrong, I’m working at a crazy pace, but I keep bouncing back and forth from one language to another – which you can see clearly through my Web Dev series.
In the past two weeks, I’ve spent time studying:
- Ruby on Rails
I consider myself fairly strong at learning concepts but that is insanity. It’s like trying to learn Spanish, German, Mandarin, and Gaelic simultaneously; it can’t be done.
My next language to learn is going to be PHP as I’m working to work myself into a full stack developer role, meaning I need to learn more about the server-side of websites and applications.
Aside from my small projects, I have yet to earn any decent paydays, but I’ll have a wealth of time in a couple months to settle down in Australia/New Zealand and get my feet dirty in the business aspect of freelance programming.
For now, I live much like a hermit. Woe is me.
Objectives from last update:
- Build a simple plugin using Python
- Build a full website from scratch
- Harass clients until they send content
One is in Mexico, the other is on a beach in Thailand. Not quite there yet.
- Work your way through these PHP tutorials.
