I am excited to present the TinyJS project! I have decided to learn Javascript in a way that will keep me personally accountable, but that can also include others as well. If you check out the site tinyjs.club, you will see a relatively simple webpage, free of bells and whistles, and indeed, even color. I made the page as simple as possible so as to focus solely on Javascript. CSS is a world unto itself, and it is much too easy to get caught up in styling.

I decided to use FreeCodeCamp as a base with which to begin. The…

A year or so ago, while talking to an experienced developer via Out of Office, we started chatting about domain names and hosting. I mentioned that while I liked being able to store entire projects on GitHub, it would be great if I could use my own custom domain without having the .github.io extension. And this experienced developer explained that yes, I could. In this article, I will explain how you can do this too.

If you’ve been a developer for any period of time, you probably know how difficult it is to actually get a page to look the way you want it to look, especially with the rise of responsive design. In this introduction, we will talk about the power of flexbox, and how you can get up and running quickly with it.

As the name suggests, flexbox offers a flexible way of designing your web page. With this…

WHAT IS THE CLOUD?

“So, what is the cloud?” My customer asked. I struggled to think of an answer for a concept I did not thoroughly understand myself. “That’s a really good question,” I answered brightly, infusing my voice with a confidence that I did not feel. “The cloud basically acts as a storage for all your info, like pictures, videos and text messages, basically anything you want, in order to free up space on your phone.
