Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving week!
I spent the week hanging out with my kids and didn’t focus too much on coding. My family and all the good food had my attention.
I did find a little bit of time to work on the extra credit project.:)
The task was to create my own resume using html and css. We had the option to download a file of background images from skillcrush or create our own. I decided to be a little more original and did so myself. Uploading my work to Photobucket was necessary to complete the project.
A layout was provided by the instructors, which made the task easier.
I prepared my resume and proceeded to download specific Google fonts, changing the colors as desired.
Here was the challenging part. Are you familiar with the ‘cute’ little icons that are commonly used?
They are called Sprites and they look like this.
I really struggled with how to make them work. And by ‘work’, I mean change when the mouse pointer hovers over them. They require a bit of work to achieve that goal. However, I was able to figure it out and add them to my resume. #awesomesauce
I plan on linking my resume to www.momcoder.com, but for now here is a screenshot!
This was a fun creative project and I really enjoyed every minute of it!
