I’ve been doing a lot of HTML and CSS. I’ve been trying to learn how to set up grids and manipulate them. I haven’t done a lot of “flexbox”. But here are a few websites I’ve created lately:
I spent some time playing with Cloud Computing. As I see it, if companies are willing to give me free resources, then I should use them! However, “you get what you pay for”…
The winner is “Python Anywhere” (https://www.pythonanywhere.com/). It a command-line interface that I quickly got up and running. However, I worry that it will eventually be way too expensive. Next is Amazon Web Services (https://us-east-2.console.aws.amazon.com/console/home?nc2=h_ct&src=header-signin®ion=us-east-2). They have a command line interface, but you need to jump through their EC2 hoops in order to securely move files and open a ssh connection.
The worst-case scenario is Google and IBM. I was able to get a very simple web page by following a ton of tutorials (https://console.cloud.google.com/home/dashboard?project=windy-cedar-216420&_ga=2.232351135.-1229432375.1536960167). But IBM didn’t even have those help files (https://console.bluemix.net/dashboard/apps/).
To progress more with Google and IBM, I would need to learn Flask. And I’m not sure that Flask is an in-demand tech skill right now (or that it will be used in the future). I would rather learn Django or some other front-end framework. However, I might return to Flask in the future… I bought a textbook!
See https://patrickkellogg.wordpress.com/cloud-computing/ for more details of my adventures.
I got a free account to the IBM Cloud at https://console.bluemix.net/dashboard/apps/. However, it’s proving a lot harder to use than I expected:
There’s supposedly a way to make IBM use a Docker container for command-line execution, but I kind of like the webpage and the way the IBM Cloud notifies me that it’s running.
