    one of the restaurants I like got a new website today, it's really beautiful. I'm sure it's a template but I'd love to be able to make this site.

    Yeah that is a nice site. Initial render time could be optimized :P

    You could make that…just would need to find the time :sigh:
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    it would take me a ton of time, my design skills aren't there yet

    a fun challenge is just trying to recreate a website that already exists. Even if you end of copying and pasting code bits as that's fine as long as you understand what the bits do.

    @lantech19446
    I probably should start doing things like that just to get better

    @Lilyheart
    It's a fun challenge and a great way to find a breakthrough when you hit a plateau.

    I feel like I've been plateaud for months

    @davidjcastner
    That's alright! Have you done much with javascript yet, I know you mentioned recently that you wanted to do more with it
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    I've done very little with it, I got so stuck on the FCC lessons and I've tried a few classes but none of them seem to translate into A. enough of an understanding to write my own even very basic code and B. enough to go back to FCC and be able to get further in the lessons.

    do you know any other programming languages like: java, python, c++?

    @lantech19446
    nope

    @lantech19446 try khanacademy, it’s a great intro that forces a hands-on approach
    https://www.khanacademy.org/computing/computer-programming/html-css
    This second one is only if you don’t feel comfortable at all with html/css
    in fact i think i’ll do the SQL course tomorrow maybe
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    I feel comfortable with the html / css but could definitely stand to improve. I may run through SQL myself there's a job i have a pretty good chance of getting right now that is looking for knowledge of sql because they don't have an actual DBA at the moment

    just want to make sure any of us using linux have seen this, it's pretty important

    np, you may have already patched I know openSUSE had a patch out by noon today
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    I update my systems at least once a week so I probably already have the patch, but thanks for the heads up!

    moved into a new apartment yesterday, no internet until tuesday, so I will be living at the nearest starbucks until then

    @Lilyheart
    There could be worse things I guess xD
    Grats on the move. That's always interesting.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    We have a new meeting space! Hammering out the details on when the switch might be, but it's possible the Nov 9th meetup will be the first in the new space. 2016 Meetups will continue on Wednesday and 2017 will be evaluated soon(ish). If you can free your calendar on 11/9, it might be worth it. (hint hint @dcpking @dcpking_twitter )

    @lantech19446 do you know when you will know your schedule next year? college registration is coming up (like end of this week/next week depending on status)
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    I'm really not sure, I think he normally waits until the last minute to tell the director because he knows that my schedule for the most part is wide open here. I'll be lucky if I know 2wks before next semester starts

    yea I'm not really this kids biggest fan and I saw a 6-12 day increase on payment time from my contracting gig because I had to change days to fit around him. I almost couldn't continue and we're talking like an extra 300 dollars a week for 7hrs

    unfortunately but thus is work in modern America, when I was younger I would have been told to find a new job that fit my hours better.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    on a positive note I downloaded javascript for dummies and so far it's actually making sense
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Maybe if we don’t get the regular meetup on the right day for you, maybe the place would let me have one other night a month to have a JavaScript specific question/project night on a day that does work.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    possibly, would be cool and I'm sure there will be plenty of fresh blood as people move through the program
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    We have at least one new person showing at that the library each month. Some don’t stick around and I fear it’s because of the connection issues).
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    possibly, you'll be out of there pretty soon though.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    The new stop is only a few miles down the road.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    few miles can do wonders for connection though.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    We’ll just hope this change does positive wonders :laughing:
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    I'm sure it will
    where's the new meeting going to be?
    Robert Wilber
    @wilberelectric_twitter
    I don't expect anyone to be here. Just wanted to state that I have been looking at the educ resources you suggest and found out I am not as uninformed as I supposed. I found I knew somewhat more than suspected but the material you directed me to tied it together in a way that hadn't occurred when I was studying it initially. Thanks.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Hey Bob! Refresh my mind on the resources. FreeCodeCamp? or?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I might be a few minutes late for chat depending on how backed up 202 is today
    Robert Wilber
    @wilberelectric_twitter
    free code camp and khan academy. Haven't spent as much time as I would like but have already seen my site through new eyes.
    I have a lot of work ahead
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    That's awesome and sounds like fun!
    202 wasn't as bad as I thought it was gonna be. They have it torn up for repaving. Yucky accident on there tho.
