The Awesome Concepts of Learning to Code


original_image1

Some of the concepts that I have learned throughout the process of coding! Sometimes you make mistakes and you have to return to previous lessons to find the right answer that you are looking for to complete the code.

These are the types of coding that I have worked on and still continue to work on because I find it interesting and rewarding.

  1. Ruby
  2. jQuery
  3. JavaScript
  4. Python Syntax
  5. HTML
  6. CSS

The concepts that I have learned

Learning how to code is something that will take a while because of the complexity of the lessons and words that are used within the codes that you are learning. However, you can learn the way that you want to by using what you are learning in certain things that you do within a website, blog, apps or anything else that you wish. Of course, you have to talk about the things that you have learned and brag about the accomplishments of learning something new.

Learning Ruby

I recently started this today because I wanted to know what it was about just like the other coding lessons. I have found that it is simple starting out and I know that it will progress as you go along throughout the exercises. The first thing that you learn in these exercises is how to use my_name, and how you can spell your name in a variety of ways.

  1. reverse
  2. upcase
  3. downcase

Coding involves many other things that you did not know about that is involved with coding. It is quite simple when you sit down and read the instructions that are provided so that you know exactly what to do. If you get stuck on a question or lesson you can always go to the forums to see if someone has had the same issue with their code.

The Difference in your Blog Posts

The recent coding concepts that I have learned I find myself using them instead of writing a blog post the normal way. I think that it is neat that you can use this information to make your blog post look different than a normal post.

I find that I use these in my current posts for my blog because it is neat to build your own blog posts with HTML. Although I am still working on how to input the other things that I have learned but for right now I am working on the basics. It will all come together in the end.

By looking at earlier posts on my blog I have found that the difference is amazing to how the outlining of my blog is perceived. You can also see how readable your blog is and you can change the style, colors, and many other things just by learning what type of code to put in your post as long as you know how to code.

The h1, h2, and so on

I have to admit that I have seen this type of coding before but had no idea of what it did until now. I have enjoyed learning about coding and hope to pursue the learning into other coding techniques.

I hope that you have enjoyed my post about my adventure of learning how to code because there will be more to follow in the upcoming months.

Using What You Learn


Learning Coding can be an interesting experience and rewarding. Especially, when you know what you are doing from the lessons that you have taken on coding. Some of the concepts that I have learned about in the process of learning about coding includes a variety of items.

  • html
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery
  • Python Syntax

Concepts that you Learn

All these concepts are somewhat easy to understand and you have to practice quite a bit to make sure that you understand the concepts that you are learning about throughout the process. Sometimes you also have to look at examples, and questions that other coder’s have asked about the same type of question that you are working on. Some people have a hard time understanding some of the concepts just like I did when I started some of it did not make sense but that is because I did not know anything about coding until looking into it earlier in the month of May.

What can you do with these concepts

Well you can work on many types of things like apps, websites, and learn just about anything that you want. You can also learn how to manipulate your blog posts on how you want your reader’s to see your posts. It is quite amazing that right now as I am writing this blog post I have used some of the concepts learned in coding. I know that there is only so much that you can write about coding but by using the concepts that you learn in something that you are working on gives you the ability to show off your new skills.

  • Engineer
  • NASA
  • Computer Science
  • Mathematics
  • Medical and Billing coding

Throughout the world there are many places that you can use these types of skills to obtain the information that you want out of your website, blog, apps, games or anything that you like. It is fascinating to me that more people are not interested in this type of information or want to learn about coding. I think that it is fun and I am excited to use my new skills on preparing this blog post with some of the interesting topics I have covered in the last couple of weeks.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my new work!

Maybe one day when I get good at this I can get a job doing this type of stuff

An Excellent Beef Soup


An Excellent Beef Soup

  • 2 32oz beef broth
  • 1 onion
  • 2 bags of carrots
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 can of petite tomatoes
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 teaspoon of beef bullion
  • 2 tablespoons of garlic
  • 1 can of corn drained
  • 1 can of spinach
  • 10 large potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of rosemary
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2lbs of stew meat
  • 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning

What you need to do first

Put your 1 32oz of beef broth into your pressure cooker, add your stew meat and pressure cook it for 30 minutes. Along with 2 tablespoons of beef bullion.

Cutting your vegetables

While your pressure cooker is working start cutting up your carrots, broccoli, onions, and cauliflower. You want to make sure that it is nice size chunks so that you can see those beautiful colors. Make sure that you rinse all of the vegetables because you always want to wash your vegetables after bringing them home from the store.

Now, you should be ready for the next step

Place your beef soup into a stock pot, add 1 more 32oz beef broth to your stew meat. You will then add your carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower to the stock pot because they usually take the longest to cook. Of course, you want to cook them until they are firm. Then you are ready to add the potatoes, corn, spinach, onion, and all the spices. Let it cook for 30 minutes, serve, and enjoy!

Inspiration Comes From The Heart


clip_image001

What you do in your life is your choice however if you do not have the inspiration to make something of yourself, and your family you have no one to blame but yourself. When I look at my family they are all the inspiration that I need to make the choices for our life. It is because of them that I have turned out the way that I have.

Without having dreams or aspirations in your life you are not going to get anywhere. You have to look toward the future. If you come across a roadblock work through it, and make it a necessary obligation to make it through the problems that you are having. Earning respect from others is something you have to work for and you have to be an example to others around you in order to receive the respect that you deserve.

You cannot lose faith because something will come around when you least expect it to. I personally, want more out of my life. I want to be able to buy the things that I want however; it is not in the cards right now. I would love to be able to go out and pamper myself with all the luxuries that many people have these days. I have no problem with not having these things because that is something that is a material thing. It does not put food on the table, gas in the car, pay the rent or even pay the bills. You have to prioritize your life to the most important things. Everything else after that is icing on the cake.

You know when I stop and think about the things that I do not have and the things that I cannot have right now. I look at the things that I have at that moment and it changes everything that I was thinking about because I know that I will come to that point in my life where I will not have to worry about the little things anymore.

Yes! I want to own my own business one day! However, in order to get experience you have to work just as hard as your manager does and prove yourself. Owning a business is not an easy task, and it takes money lots of it! It also takes many hours of working so that you make your business a success. With persistence, and the desire to learn you can accomplish anything that you want in your life. You have to be willing to work anytime, anywhere, and be there when you business needs you to work.

Throughout the past six years I have had people ask me why I am working where I am with a Master’s Degree. You know what I say to them you have to start somewhere, and prove yourself. You have to make it for yourself and prove to others that you are a leader. That you can do anything that you put your mind to otherwise you will not get anywhere that you want to be in your life. I love the job that I do and sometimes it can be hectic, and stressful however, that is a part of life.

You cannot just sit around and do nothing because that is not going to get you anywhere in your life. You have to fight for what you want; you have to work for the things that you want out of life. You cannot take the easy road because you will fail just because you took the easy road. You cannot give up on the things that you want out of life because once you give up then it is your entire fault for not pursuing the dreams, and aspirations that you wanted out of your life.

Go for your dreams! This is something that I try to instill into my children because no one is going to just give you what you want out of life. You have to make a decision that you are going to work hard for what you want. I try to be a inspiration to my children because who else are they going to hear it from? The people who want to see you succeed in everything that you do in your life.

Yes for the most part in the line of work that I do they tell me when I am doing a good job, and they tell me when I mess up. That is all part of working for other people they should tell you and coach you if your are doing something the wrong way. I believe giving praise to those who do a good job! Just a simple thank-you, your doing a great job, keep up the good work, and other things like that to keep your employee’s motivated in the job that they are doing.

Thoughts About Memorial Day


clip_image001blog.adw.org  

Memorial Day is approaching it is a time that people celebrate what our troops, veterans, and people who are overseas are doing to keep our country safe. It is celebrated on the final Monday in May so that we may remember those who have fought for our country. Even though they are not with us today they will always be in our hearts and souls. You know it has to be hard for them to come home to their families and try to forget about the horrors that they have witnessed during any of the wars that this country has fought.

clip_image002

For everything that they do to protect, and serve their community and fellow Americans they should receive the recognition from everyone. There are too many veterans out there that are not receiving the help that they need to come to terms with the things that they have seen all over the world. Some people say that if you have ever served in the war that the things that you experienced during that time is something that you do not want to talk about because of the memories that it leaves in your mind.

clip_image003

When you look at these grave sites you see millions of soldiers that fought for their country and died in the process. They gave their life serving our country and we would not be here today if they had not given their life during the war. It takes quite a bit of energy to make it through the wars and live your life without the fear of bombs, guns, and other things going off around you.

In researching, about the longest living veterans of World War I the information contained in the research states that Frank Buckles was the last oldest World War I veteran who passed away in “2011”. He lived to be 110 years old after serving so many years of watching the horrors of war! He was a handsome man who gave so many years to serving in the war and for his country. What a life to live!

clip_image004http://pershingslastpatriot.com/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Buckles

I hope that you appreciate the sacrifices that these soldiers have made for our country. We as Americans owe them gratitude, and recognition for all that they do or have done for America. If you see someone in uniform shake their hand and thank them for all that they have done! Do not be afraid to show these soldiers respect because after all that they have gone through they deserve the respect and the gratification that people are thankful for the things that they have done for our country.

In honor of those who have given their life because of the casualties of war! I commend you for all that you have done! For those who are currently serving I hope that you come home safe and sound to your families. You deserve the utmost respect from everyone around the world for everything that you do to protect our country.

The Art of Learning How to Code


 

This type of information is interesting to learn! I have enjoyed learning about code. You know once you get the hang of doing the information it is not that hard after you have done it a few hundred times. Throughout the whole process of learning this new information I have come across some issues that I did not understand. However, by looking at examples, and checking out the forum for the same exact problem it dawns on you where you made a mistake.

Using www.codecademy.com has turned out to be an experience that allows you to work on the information at your speed. It is interesting how the information finally comes together when you are finished putting in the material that you want showcased on your website.

By learning how to code I can take what I have learned and put it towards making my website, blog or anything else look better than it does right now. Making it easier for reader’s that come to my blog find the information that they want.

Learning Something About Coding to Teach The Children


clip_image001

You know this is something that I ran across on Facebook and thought that I would see what my children are missing out of their curriculum. Computer science should be a part of any child’s curriculum because it gives them a different outlook on the way that their games, apps, and websites are made up.

original_image

Yes! I have a Master’s Degree but decided to give this a try because it was something that I did not know about, and in order to teach the children about coding I have to know what to tell them so if they run into a problem while doing this I will be able to point them in the right direction. Like a mother would do to make sure that they understand the concepts they will learn when they take this course.

original_image1

I can honestly say that this was a different experience and something that I rather enjoyed learning how to do. Coding is rather simple as long as you put the right commands in the right place so that you get the outcome you are seeking.

Learning to code

Yes! This program is for K-8 however if you do not know anything about coding this is a good place to start along with www.codecademy.com I have to say that in the process of learning these materials it has enlightened my thoughts about coding. The things that you can do with coding to make your website, blog or anything else work the way that you want it to.

Recently I have learned about the webmaster tools through Google, Bing, and Yahoo and how you can use them to your advantage and where you are ranked within the search engines. This opens a wide range of tools at your disposal so that you can keep track of the many issues your website, blog or anything else has.

Maybe, with the things that I have learned and pass onto my children they will want to learn more about coding. Develop their own apps or make something that will be useful to others around the world.

The learning does not stop and learning something new is a step that everyone should take. I love learning and enjoy learning about different things. Being a homeschool parent you have to take the time to learn other things so that you can teach your children what you have learned.

Thanks to www.codecademy.com and www.code.org I will enjoy teaching the children the steps that they need to take and the language that they will use to build their own apps, website or whatever they would like to create.

Dreams


clip_image001

Sometimes you have dreams and cannot remember them! Maybe this is a good thing because you probably do not wish to see these dreams come true. Everyone has dreams that they cannot explain. Sometimes they have nightmares and wish for them to stop because it relives those terrible times in their life.

Having dreams is not a bad thing but when those horrible dreams become a reality it stops you in your tracks. When you have dreams it arouses your deepest emotions from different parts of your life. Our dreams help us with the fears, and aspirations of our emotions, life, and anything else around us. Many people have dreams that enchant, frighten, and even enrich their life.

Everyone knows that having dreams is a part of life whether they like it or not people have dreams about a variety of things. Some people have dreams that put them in another place in the world, another statue, another social status. There is nothing wrong with having these types of dreams because you want more out of your life than what you have now.

Dreams have psychological and physiological aspects that may help you and it may not help you through many types of problems. Some people may say that they do not have dreams because they do not have anything to dream about in their life. However, dreams are something that happens and you cannot do anything about having dreams.

She has had dreams that she would like to revisit however, getting back to those dreams are hard to do. She has experienced frightening dreams, which she would not like to revisit because of the frightening experiences she had during those dreams.

Sometimes she talks about her dreams especially the ones that might intrigue others, and some dreams that she just wanted to talk about because of the weirdness they entailed. Some dreams you should keep to yourself and not talk about them because those dreams were meant for only you to have.

She remembers a time when her daughter had a dream about a little girl that she would sit up and talk to during the night. She actually, heard her daughter talking to someone and the next morning she asked her daughter who she was talking to? Her daughter said that she was talking to one of her friends “Sarah” a little girl that was her age. It is quite amazing what children see that grown-ups do not see.

Happy Dreaming!

Again Learning Coding Can be an Interesting Experience


 

You know when starting this endeavor I did not know if I would enjoy it this much! I have learned quite a bit about coding in the last couple of day. Along with preparing finals for the children. There were a few spots in learning this information that I could not quite get the hang of however, with persistence I managed to make it through to the next lesson.

It is quite interesting that I will now be able to develop my own website with the information below! How awesome is that? The many things that you can learn if you put your mind to what you want to do in your life.

Mother’s Day


Picture1

I am posting this early because I have to work on Mother’s Day along with many other mothers around the world.

Being a mother involves many things like being there for your children no matter what the obstacles. Mother’s always make sure that they have food, clothes, and numerous other things. Mother’s encourage them to do their best at anything that they do in their life. Mother’s praise them for doing the right thing. Mother’s make sure that there children know that you love them with all your heart.

You have to make sure that your children know that you are not there to be their friend but you are there to make sure that they grow up to be the best person that they can be. It is not going to be easy especially when your babies start growing up and becoming their own person. The time to be their friend is when they are grown and starting their own life with the person that they have found to spend their life with and start their own family.

Being a parent is not easy and there are obstacles that you have to overcome to make sure that your children are safe, secure, and happy within their life. Things in life happen for a reason and no matter what they are you can always count on your mother to be there when things go in the wrong direction. Every mother needs to give their children advice about many things like drugs, sex, boys, girls (in this day and time), and many other things. You have to make sure that they know how to defend themselves, stick up for themselves, and to protect themselves if something should happen.

The best Mother’s Day presents are the ones that you cannot buy in any store in the world. Mother’s around the world enjoy the gifts that your children make for you from anything and everything that they can find around the house. It is truly amazing what your children can make for you and the best part is it comes from the heart. They took the time to make you something to celebrate the special day.

I hope that every mother around the world enjoys Mother’s Day with the ones that they love. Cherish your children and be thankful that you have them around to celebrate this wonderful day. Our children are what keeps us going everyday of every year.

To all the mother’s that have lost their children I am sorry that you have to go through a Mother’s Day without your loved one.
