@chrisandsuch In some programming languages thats the way you do all looping :D
Its very expressive actually
But for the beginning, hard to think about and track
@chrisandsuch Sorry, i cannot really tell :D better ask that kind of thing other people here :-) i'm programming for 9 years by now and it just so happened in between all that :D
I started out with object oriented programming though and got into more functional programming a bit later. I did some recursive stuff, but not very deeply
@alpox thats inspiring. I’m really a beginner with some previous learning mixed in. Most of the time when I’m writing some code I feel like I can do more but its a confidence issue. Always has me second guessing myself for some reason. I’m working to try to get through that.
@alpox thanks for the great conversation. gotta take a break but i’ll be back in a couple mins
chrisandsuch sends brownie points to @alpox :sparkles: :thumbsup: :sparkles:
@chrisandsuch no problem :) im off to bed
happie morning coders..?
@1532j0004kg hello. Where are you from? Its night here in tx
chrisandsuch sends brownie points to @1532j0004kg :sparkles: :thumbsup: :sparkles:
@1532j0004kg I’m from Texas in the USA. Whats the weather like there? Its getting cold here.
@1532j0004kg favorite programming language?
i am just learning program.
here rainny...what about the weather in ur place..?
whats ur fav?
@1532j0004kg starting out can be frustrating at times but stick with it. Its been cloudy the last few days. Fav is hard to say. They all have their own unique way of building on the basic concepts. Going to bed. Night
Hey guys, I just finished the Jquery section and I'm on build a tribute page. Would you guys recommend to read the bootstrap documentation? I feel like I understand what HTML elements to use for what, however it feels like I struggle trying to figure out how to get things on the page where I want them (eg: I want the picture in the center)
Should I just use basic HTML / CSS and mess with padding / divs for this project? or should I try to be using bootstrap as much as possible
you don't really need to
Codepen had the bootstrap built in processor
I mean, you should to know what to do.
also, just experiment where you want things to go
that is what all coders do, experiment and test
Gotcha, so I guess I should just review the previous classes/lessons, and try to just use that to the best of my ability?
@BladymirL - it's good to get the basics down - there are a lot of things implemented in bootstrap. The most helpful features for the basic tribute and portfolio pages are the grid (row and column classes) text centering, and a handful of other things. Stick with the basics that freeCodeCamp covered in the lessons, good to review those. Then use Google search and ask questions like "centering text and images in Bootstrap". Sticking with Bootstrap V3 and making sure that you get the appropriate information related to that version is my recommendation - that is what the lessons are based on. That should get you started. Then, put questions and code in here and ask for help when needed. But spending some time trying to figure it out on your own will help with the learning efforts. Good luck!

i highly suggest not using bootstrap, and using vanilla css with flexbox. bootstrap is a dying framework. i have been a software engineer for the past 6 months or so, and i have never seen it, nor heard of anyone planning to use it. meanwhile, flexbox is the most important skill in css.
however, it just might be the area i'm in. but no matter what, flexbox is something you will use for a long long long time, and bootstrap (and any other css frameworks) is something that's eventually going to fade away.
@chrisandsuchhttps://www.codewars.com/ this is a nice resource. If you just keep on coding it becomes second nature. Sometimes, it is good to go back and read some books too. Here is a site that has some free books, https://github.com/EbookFoundation/free-programming-books. If there are bugs or something, To debug, I go through my code in blocks and check if each block of code works as intended with console.log().
meanwhile, flexbox is the most important skill in css.
I'd add CSS grid for your grid now. This is the proper tool to build your grid.
@sorinr I think bootstrap will be way less popular for two reasons:
There are more and more frameworks coming out
Grid and flexbox
@longnt80 i agree that its popularity may decrease in the next few years but besides the layout, that can be taken over by the newest flexbox and grid, BS still has a lot of well tested UI components that can be used in the projects. Nobody stops you mixing them around in achieving the best results
@longnt80 in fact is just CSS nothing more. as you have access to the BS source you can play around with it as you wish
