Hello my dear readers, how are you doing? Is the weekend near or are you working in the next couple of days? No matter how your days are going, I hope life is treating you well!
All is fine in Bee Coding & SelfCaring land ;-). After a week or so, I managed to get back to the Free Code Camp Survey Form Challenge and was surprised how easy it went today.
I am nowhere near any finishing line, but at least I was able to write most of the HTML for the form. I plan to create a form that gives feedback both for the "The Bee Creates" page and the "The Bee Writes..." blog. I wanted to use the CSS Flexbox to create two columns and use one for this page and the other for "The Bee Writes...". Thinking about it now, it doesn't feel quite right. It should be for both blogs and not for the page and one blog. Hmm... I am going to change that.
The other problem I have, if I want to use this is form, is: I need to create a database to collect the data and I have no clue how to do that. Last week I had a look into free database offers. There are quite a lot. It needed me a while to figure out that I need to connect the questions of the form with a data block in the database. A steep learning curve. Not quite sure if I can manage.
I decided though to do the form first, and then figuring out how to use a database. That sounds like a plan, doesn't it? After all, I want to finish the Free Code Camp course first and then use the stuff.
I am still worried that my code is rather rubbish, but what do I expect? I am starting from zero knowledge, so I assume I am doing ok. Would be nice to find a mentor who could give me some pointers. I had a look into other threads, where people asked for feedback, in the Free Code Camp forum but half of the time I didn't understand anything of the answers. That didn't encourage me to ask. But I will have to eventually. I'll keep you updated.
Are you a lady around 50 starting to code? If so, please let me know your approach.
In this sense happy weekend and happy coding/selfcaring
