Recently I’ve been working a bit on Cascade training, namely learning how to use HTML/CSS to create more advanced content such as tables, embedded videos, and pull quotes. I’ve also learned a bit about beekeeping since my Cascade page is themed around bees (why, I have no idea!) Here’s what it looks like.
I also got the chance to mess around with Photoshop a bit to create the bee-themed icons. Check out some of those videos by the way. They’re terrifying yet fascinating at the same time 🙂
Aside from that bee-siness (ha), I got a high-level overview of WordPress and its theme functionality from Stacy. I also set up MAMP and WordPress on my personal laptop and cloned the entire Life and Letters database+content onto my local machine! It was pretty cool to learn about how WordPress utilizes a SQL database in order to keep all the configs like account information, plugin settings, and content. I don’t have too much experience with databases, so this project should be an interesting opportunity to learn more about those technologies 🙂
