Hey guys. It has been awhile since I have been able to update what I have been up to lately. I thought with me taking a day off today would be a great day to give some updates.
I have been going through some tutorials about WordPress on Treehouse lately. It seems that many developers I run into really despise how WordPress is set up, ran, and possible security issues. I still want to understand WordPress because it is so popular, and I feel that if I can understand it even more, it will help me when I move to different CMS’s (EE, Kraft, etc.). I also have been watching pieces of Mijingo’s course over Expression Engine.
Football season is upon us. So my time is getting less and less each week. I am hoping to update again before I finish the book I am reading.
What makes it really hard to continue learning right now is the fact that I work full time plus coach football. And I don’t want to shirk my researching on strategies on my job(s) I have right now, so it makes it hard to learn that the pace I was going at this summer. I am really excited for September 20th though. Coderfaire is happening in Nashville, and I am going to be there all day. Hopefully this will recharge my batteries and get me going back to learning all I can again. The event comes near the end of our football season (middle school), and so that will be a great way to me to resurface into web development and learn more and more.
On a side note about web development, I am helping start up a beginners web development club at my school I teach at. This is really exciting as students will be able to start learning some of the fundamentals needed and I will be able to interject what I am trying to learn more and more into my job. I am hoping to gauge interest within the next couple weeks and possibly have our first meeting within the next month. Hopefully the next time I update this blog we will have already met, and I can give an update on that.
Again, if you have comments or questions just send them my way. Thanks for reading, and have a great week everyone.
