This looks like a great event and if I can clear my schedule I might be attending this. As someone who is into programming, understanding the fundamentals is huge. If you ever wanted more understanding on the importance of the sketch and wire frame process this is a must attend event.
So as I stated in my last post Learning to code, you will understand I plan on writing my trials and tribulations in the process. So I am learning PHP via code academy as I love PHP and it’s a great starting point.
I will be exploring a few options here and giving my tips on working with and getting started from my point of view various cloud platforms, programming tools and just pure head aches in learning to program.
This is something that opens up more worms then a bait shop, there are so many ways to get started with cloud programing. We will dive deeper into some cloud options in later posts but I will say I am truly inspired sharing my journey with everyone.
Some cloud options we will be exploring more will be:
What is programming without tools. Here I will showcase the tools or websites that I use on my journey.
So I was looking for some WYSiWyG (What You See Is What You Get) editor that might make it easier and came across Wavemaker. Now understand that it was around 0230am when I came across this. So I start to research it some and I come to find out it was acquired by VMware in 2011 and as of May 2013 sold off to Pramati. I had no idea for two years VMware was sitting on this tool. I like how it is compatible with multiple operating systems, and I will get familiar with it during my journey.
I want to learn more and where better to explore these options then right on here. I know there are others looking to get into programming in some form and hopefully my journey will help them and make it easier for them. I have a wide range of tools from easy to use mobile builders to mainstream tools. I will post all tools I use and follow along post or two on each as I get familiar with this new world.
