TIL: Types Are Hard

More java today, still working through sample problems. I had expected to make it through a few today seeing as I’d already done them on the EcmaScript course but…. no such luck.

Rather than sitting down to watch a bunch of videos that were going to end up putting me to sleep this evening, I decided to hop right back into things and start trying to solve some practice problems with Java.

TIL: Building A Form Inside A Modal

I’ve been back working on a side project for work and I needed to get a form working inside of a modal pop up. I was able to figure out most of it this morning, getting the structure created for the modal pop up and the form, but I continue to have issues with the actual submission.

TIL: Google Search Console

After moving my site over last week, I noticed that it wasn’t actually showing up in any google results. So I started looking around for a reason why this might me. My searches taught me that there’s Google Search Console for domain owners for managing how their content shows up in Google searches.
