Chris Hattery: I'm a creative thinker who loves computers, typing on keyboards, and absorbing information on the Internets. I also like pushing pixels and adjusting font sizes. When I'm not coding, I'm typically watching Hulu/NetFlix and going on walks with my wife, two cats (Leonard and Sheldon), and my February 2014 born son. Everything else can be learned below.
• Fixed Twitter Feed
I moved to Stow 2 weeks ago. I plan on finding a new E-Commerce Web Developer position near Stow, Akron or Cleveland. I would love to have something within a close 10-15 minute drive. Contact me if you hear of anything.
I'm finally starting to get the hang of Git and Sass. I have been using them on a current project and hope to make it part of my workflow.
I contacted my web-host about my speed issues and downtime. They moved me to a new server last week and I've had no problems since.
• Added favicon
• Increased page width to 981px
Current Challenge: Google Maps API.
--Pull addresses from a db, display pins on a map. Click pins for details on location. Filters update map.--
Wow... what a challenge. Happy to have accomplished it (with help). After 2 or 3 more similar projects, I'm sure I could finish one in a day.
I'm starting to understand AJAX stuff more. I want to impliment those techniques into the Song Request App.
I recently got some hands on with SASS. Definitely excited to keep using it. Just a pain for making quick changes, but forces me to use Developer Tools more. Which, in the long run, probably saves more time.
I keep shouting out my webhost, but I keep having speed issues with them. And, if I upload files too often, the site crashes for 5 minutes. Ugh.
Current Challenge: Full screen, resizable background video.
Hopefully I can pluck something from there. I was trying a js approach, but thought of what's probably a more reliable method, css w/ media querys.
Got a new laptop a few weeks ago. Boosted productivity.
This beast ... http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/series/aspirer
Twitter changed their API. I need to fix that.
Trying this out. Preproccesing, sass. http://alphapixels.com/prepros/
This post is lame.
Shout out to my webhost Eleven2
I just tried to use a Mac shortcut on the PC. SMH.
Alright then, time for an update. Been at the new job for almost a month. Learning a ton. Can't wait till it all sinks in and I don't need to reference other stuff all the time. Getting pushed to my learning threshold some days, but it's all good in the end. And when I think I know it all again, there'll be more to learn.
Been keeping up with some of my 'at will' education too. jQuery, HTML5 and CSS3 are my faves (and bootstrap) so if you're not reading this from Chrome or Firefox, get with it. Unfortunately, I abandoned my Ruby on Rails learning when I got the new job :/ but luckily I have lifetime access to that information.
Shout out to my webhost Eleven2
I've been extremely happy with Eleven2's hosting. Easy to set up, a lot faster, great UI design for the control panel. I recommend them to everyone. I'll even put your site on one of my sub-directories so you can do a speed comparison. Just ask.
