This weekend I managed to build my first web app from the ground up. It is shonky, it doesn’t do a lot, but I made it, from scratch.. Well, starting from the excellent HTML 5 Boilerplate and maybe with a few copy/pastes from Stack Overflow

I’ll catch up with the Dev’s at work and find out how to do it better.
I also made a few changes to this site’s layout this weekend; getting rid of a column, expanding the content area, adding a box shadow to the main content div and a random (of 7 possible), full bleed background image on the html element.
While I am talking about learning to code, this excellent video from Code.org:
I especially like what Zuckerberg says about learning>doing>learning>doing and building on something rudimentary to increase its capability.
