Things I Want to Learn About or Go Deeper Into in 2020
January 10, 2020
Several times recently I have thought about things I want to learn this year or dive a bit deeper into. It is always helpful to get that stuff out of my head and written down somewhere. (In making this list, I feel like I have already forgotten something.)
- CSS Shapes – I played around with shapes a bit in a project at the end of the year but would like to look for more opportunities to incorporate this into my work. I would really like
shape-insideto be implemented in the near future.
clip-path– I used
clip-pathfor the first time in a project that is still in development. I hope to identify more opportunities to use them in projects coming up.
- Vue.js – I used Vue in an interface project this past year. I bought a 3-course bundle from vuejsdevelopers.com and worked through the first lesson. So I have gotten my feet wet. But I want to complete the other 2 courses in the bundle and go deeper.
- GSAP3 – I used Greensock (GSAP) in several projects this past year. Version 3 came out at the end of the year. I really like that they have simplified the API. It looks like a lot of great new features and improvements. I will need to take the time to get up to speed on the changes to use the new version in future projects.
- Build a site in Craft 3 – I really like Craft CMS. I built 12 sites in Craft between 2015 and 2016. I would like to work through Ryan Irlan’s course Up and Running with Craft 3. so that I can learn about the changes from version 2 to 3. I also need to reacquaint myself after 3 years away from it. Building a site in Craft was on my list of things I wanted to do in 2019 but other things took priority. I would like to be able to consider Craft as a solution for future projects with LGND.
Now I have my list that I can refer back to. And maybe by posting it, it will give me some accountability. Please feel free to ask me how I am progressing. You can leave a comment here or get in touch on Twitter.
