I’ll be honest, I’ve actually never had any sort of training when it comes to front end development. I fumbled around with it when I was a kid many many years ago, and then in college moved straight into C, C++, Java, and then finally Python in the workplace. But it’s always been an interest of mine (part of the reason this site exists). So I’ve been slowly taking an online course to try to finally get stuff nailed down.
Prior to stepping into learning MEAN stack and taking a few extra front end specific online courses, I had been playing around with setting up sanity tests for the Twitch.tv API. Tonight I wanted to circle back around to it again and see what I could get done with it.
I’ve been sick all weekend so I didn’t have as much energy to spend on learning as I had wanted to. At the very least I was interested in seeing if I couldn’t get the paging system to work, so I decided I’d spend what little remaining time I have this weekend playing around with it.
Spent some more time this morning trying to figure out Jekyll. I’m not sure why they try so hard to hide the functionality from the user. Maybe I’m just bad at reading the documentation…
Boy this sure took longer than I expected to, also incredibly confusing for how simple it actually is.
