Dev Blog Inaugural Post


   It is a couple hours into the last day of 2014. I moved to New York with the goal of becoming a web developer. Although I currently have a full time job in an unrelated field, I have been trying to teach myself the basics of front and back end development on my own time. I created this site to showcase some of what I have been able to learn so far, and with a little more time and dedication I hope to gain admittance to one of the many coding schools in NYC.
   This site was made using Google App Engine. GAE is a platform which provides many high-level tools for the development of web applications. For my purposes, however, it provides a fairly easy to use framework with which to develop and host this website from the ground up. I use Python as my backend programming language. I thus far have a basic understanding of page handling through class and function definition with a minimal understand of database functionality.
   For the front end, I have a decent grasp of HTML and CSS with a basic understanding of javascript and jQuery. I have most recently been teaching myself Boostrap whose framework allows for relatively easy implementation of dynamic website functionality. This site, so far, makes most use of Bootstrap's togglable tabs and grid system.
   Going forward I will be learning more in order to implement the following:
Google datastore and database functionality
External text files for content management
More complex page handling
Useful jQuery/Javascript

   Alight, It's a few days into the new year and I hope everyone had a good holiday season. I wish I had taken a screen shot of the old site since a lot has changed around here in the last couple days. Mostly been working on the design of this place and getting a better handle on my HTML. Took a little while, but I got my resume up and formatted, for the most part. Table elements are still a little tricky. There are also a few pictures to check out in a nice little disjointed grid that I felt appropriate for an odd number.
   What I'm most happy about is my new Guestbook. It's not very fancy, and doesn't require any kind of login so it's not the most secure thing in the world, but it works for now. After several hours of troubleshooting and error resolution I was able to get my site working with Google datastore. The form takes the poster's name and some content and stores it using Google's No SQL database. It automatically stores the date of posting as well as offers some basic error handling. Well, basically if you leave blank fields it will ask you not to leave blank fields.
   I'm still working on figuring out new and useful page handling and jQuery/Javascript. And I want to learn some more fancy HTML5/CSS3 stuff. Really I just need to learn more and more about what I already know. Well, that's all for now so please, sign the Guestbook!
