Should I go nerdette mode again? Well, here are some of the things I’ve learned today:
- The very basics of jQuery. It’s quite easy, but I still don’t understand it.
- Foundation 5 vs. Bootstrap frameworks. I think Foundation 5 is a little easier to understand (mainly its core classes) and a lot “cleaner,” even though the functionalities are the same.
- Basic Ruby on Rails. I really want to learn how to develop locally instead of using (and eventually paying) for a cloud IDE to work on them.
- node.js is the “in” thing. The thing is, because my PC isn’t that powerful or something, I had to uninstall and reinstall the newest version instead of using those weird “npm” commands just to update. They don’t even have these simple instructions on the node.js website. Why?
- The very basics of PHP. I’ll never succeed in understanding in how to build WordPress custom themes (and possibly plugins) without understanding the PHP basics first.
- XAMPP, WAMP, MAMP,1 and even AMPPS won’t work on my desktop. This is why I’m waiting for my brand-new custom-built Dell laptop to arrive next week so I can finally do proper development. I have to install Windows-related “server” software like Web Platform Installer and WebMatrix. Even with those two, I still don’t get it.
- Being a hunter and titan in Destiny is a lot harder than it looks than being a Warlock. I guess it’s because I’ve gotten used to being a warlock. Today is also the major update for the game, in which all the “cheater” guns get downgraded and the underrated guns get upgraded. Much love for auto rifles and scout rifles… and pulse rifles too.
- I think I will install Final Fantasy Type-0 HD PC version on my new laptop, since it’ll be a lot more powerful than this desktop. I still prefer the desktop, but you know, very soon I’ll be attending some local hackatons at nighttime, so the laptop is really needed.
- Web development coding + listening to the long playing of A Tribe Called Quest‘s The Anthology album2 = PURE WIN.
And here’s something that I can share to everyone who are obsessed with lists. You can even sign up an account on Listography if you would like to share your favorite lists to the world. I got one too you know.
On the sidenote...
- There is a Windows version, even though everyone is saying that MAMP is only for Macs… [↩]
- Look them up. Classic hip-hop. Reminiscing of my very late middle school and early high school days. Still sounding fresh and new. Screw these “(c)rap songs” that I’m hearing on the radio nowadays… I don’t even listen to the radio anymore… [↩]
