Almost? OTOH, I've got 8 videos to watch and answer questions on today, plus continuing learning R, and a couple of meetings. Sometime soon I might find out what I'm going to be working on ! :)

A nice clean look - I like the fade on the background wash. A couple of typos ( naughty! :) ), but, aside from that, a good summary page to teach from with all the link branches, so it fulfills its purpose simply and effectively, which is how web pages should aim to be. Well done!

Everything mike said! The page is beautiful. If you are coming to the library meeting tonight we can go over the code if you want. Otherwise I can type up some feedback on the code itself. Just let me know!

Thanks for the comments @dcpking & @Lilyheart .
Unfortunately, I will not be able to make the meeting. The time and day doesn't work for me as I work all the way in Cherry Hill, NJ.

Not a problem! I'll keep that in mind for future meeting plans. I know you already saw some of the code comments, but I think I finished. MontCode/code_review@cd55703

Yup, but without seeing your code it's hard to explain how to do it. :/ And about to run away from the PC to study for a test tomorrow. Blah. My guess is you want some nested divs but don't quote me on that.
If you are free tonight, I can do a conference call you with.

He's working on a multi=page site which isn't codepen friendly.

is it possible to get the text centered in the middle? and not at the bottom?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart

I recommend putting the red parts all in one div and the other parts in a second div. Then use those divs to make two columns. How you do that is up to you. A simple way is you could make the first column say 35% wide and the rest 64% wide but that might look odd on overly small or wide screens. I'm not sure if Jason has gotten into mobile stuff yet tho, so if it just has to work on a regular desktop screen, that might be good enough.
It's not so much that you want it centered, you want it side by side.

for some reason I thought the webinar was at 5pm, not 6. Will probably miss it.
Lily Romano

Sep 28 2016 21:26
That was probably my fault. I first read it as 5 p.m. as did a few other people.
