Week 3. Anticipated Hiatus. Vietnam + MYS + AUS + LA. Day 26.

Programming Life

I knew these weeks would be less productive than the beginning. Midway on Wednesday I made a trip to Hanoi, Vietnam for a holiday. I visited two small towns within Vietnam. I then flew to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to sort out misc issues. Following KL, I then came to Perth, Australia to say goodbyes to friends and pack for a year trip to the states. I am now currently residing in LA, USA. It's been a busy last two weeks.

Anyway onto the learning log:

Programming Notes

Three main pillars of web design:

Client Side Server Database
HTML
CSS
JS
Python
C#
Node.js
SQL
XML
JSON

Noting the 1 API in common. (JS)

Definitions:
jQuery (AGAIN): "jQuery is the most popular JavaScript library in use today, with installation on 65% of the top 10 million highest-trafficked sites on the Web" Free and open source. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JQuery)

(HTML) Block level: Grouping mechanism. For example using a <div> </div> tag makes a literal block on a page. It spans the width of a page and continues down. (self understanding)

(HTML) Inline:  Grouping mechanism. Differs to blocks as it only spans as large as the contents inside. <span> </span> is an example of an inline element. Inline elements can exist inside block elements. (self understanding)
