One area of software development I want to focus on and try make second nature for myself. Is making all of my content accessible by as many users as possible. I feel that coming from a games background helps with this as they typically have settings to help make games more accessible for people, although I do agree that there could be a lot more done. With this said I worked though a tutorial showing how to update colors of elements to have a strong contrast against any colored background using CSS.
As I said last week, I would finally have something nice to show form continuing with the Windows Project Forms programming tutorial playlist. Now if you look below you will see I came through on that promise. So this week for the C# Chat application, the fifth video in the series focused on creating the visuals for the Login screen of the app. We have yet to start on the code for the application other than setting the custom window properties, but I am really looking forward to it.
This week I found a YouTube channel from Ben Awad, videos on a number of topics including React. I decided to start wit his Practical React series, to help solidify the basics of React in my mind. It also helped as I was able to pick up some tricks and tips for creating React applications. I am currently halfway through this series but plan to finish it next week and start working though some more of his React content.
Finishing up this week I worked through a video of Tim Corey, who provided an intro look at WebAPI. This was similar to the tutorial I had done last week but I enjoy Tim’s videos and felt that the time spent following along with it will be useful in the long run by cementing the basics.
I am currently looking at starting another long term project but with ASP.Net this time. It is planned to start off with the basics and slowly introduce more complexity as it goes, so I am hoping it will be good and I will be able to following along with no issues to stop me.
