Created a simple test for Search form needs to expanded upon. Waiting for coach session, will try to arrange when EVA back from slovenia.

CSS functionality of the search button on search form is nearly like the design. Created separate child components for icon and text so they can be styled independently.

Blog of conference started for day 2, again I tagged #ProgNET on twitter with screen shots. I attended the following talk and workshop;

         @ Shawn Wildermuth - keynote talk "Turning passion into experience" - This was a great talk for day 2.  Key take aways - fake it till you make it...but with the caveat fake confidence do not fake ability.  As ability you will be found out.  It is ok to say you don't know something.  Employers are looking for people that are keen to keep learning not just having all the skills they want as technologies change but they want people to adapt and keep learning too.

         @ Michael Newton - Fable workshop "Fabled Pokemon" - This was a three hour workshop that went so quick.  I was having so much fun and learning too.  Fable is using React as the core application and using F sharp and Fable as wrappers.  So although the code looked and the syntax was very different the components and the concept that code is broken into components, functions and modules was not completely foreign.   Ramón would love this which can be used with fetch requests to return data about Pokemons.  Such a great idea for a workshop, such fun for children and older children.  I am still looking for Pikachu but my basic app was working! 

I also got a big tip from another lady who was attending the workshop. In terminal (cmd line) she initialised the directory where the workshop code was, went to git hub, created a repository, copied the push and head lines, went back to terminal (cmd line). Added files, committed with initial commit message and pushed to github with copied lines. She was then able to change the code and have a history of learning and code changes to review after the workshop. Also this was then available for future employees! Thank you Layla for that tip :)

She also was very inspiring in the fact that she was asking questions throughout the workshop to help her understanding but it also helped others in the workshop who were struggling over the same understanding.


Design talk on "mindset of learning" for RGSoC meetup but also to develop for a lightening talk to have just in case the opportunity arises. Ramón and Anna have been so generous and have offered to help me develop this skill.

Continue with design of 2nd Blog.


Complete and put in a pull request for 2nd blog after EVA has had a chance to review and add her part.

The UI design of the table to display the data results from the Fetch API has been done. Slack is so useful as I have been able to keep up to date with the conversation of the design even at a conference.
