Lambda School 🎒- 3 mins
Below you’ll find a growing list of projects that I’ve worked on and completed at Lambda School. All of the code for everything I’ve been doing for Lambda School can be found on Github.
User Interface I
The first week of Lambda School explored the fundamentals of HTML and CSS. This project incorporated:
- semantic HTML tags
- CSS selectors
- CSS specificity and inheritance
The concepts this week weren’t novel to me but I’ve never been tasked with creating a pixel perfect rendition of a website from a mockup. The project was challenging but I really enjoyed the process.
The site is hosted on Netlify here.
For this project I created a portfolio website from scratch. This was the first website that we started with a blank slate and wrote every line of HTML and CSS. I really enjoyed the mix of design and code involved in implementing the idea that was in my mind.
There weren’t too many new concepts introduced with this assignment but a preprocessor (LESS) was used so I tried to make liberal use of variables and mixins.
Created a functional digital timer using DOM manipulation. Topics for this stretch assignment were:
- Interacting with the DOM
This was a stretch assignment (to be completed after finishing the actual assignment). It was also the first thing we built that could be manipulated in the browser.
This was a sprint challenge completed over a three hour period. The main objective of this project was to implement a component that made it possible to filter a certain articles based on a
data tag. Based on our experience the week before, we could have certainly implemented the article cards as well. Given the time sensitive nature of the sprint, though, we just focused on the tabs. In addition, I built a carousel component from scratch to cycle through several images.
User Interface Project
For this project we were given a full week to act as a front end developer at a web development agency and develop a marketing website based on a style guide and a few mock ups.
