Top of my list to discuss is the most recent CSS3 I’ve reviewed; namely, the difference btwn :pseudo-class and ::pseudo-element — most obviously, the single and double colon distinction.
MDN web docs defines them as the following (excerpted):
pseudo-element keyword added to a selector that styles a specific part of the selected element(s).
pseudo-class keyword added to a selector that specifies a special state (like hover, visited) of the selected element(s).
:active which to me follow the spec; however, I can confuse them easily at this point. Probably the best aspect is that there are far fewer
I’m very impressed with the MDN developer web docs and have begun reading through the HTML and CSS3 documentation and tutorials from the introductory level (which is a very good refresher). Both have assessments to complete after each intensive module — and I’m looking forward to testing my skills!
I made a codepen featuring Substring Value Attributes which I reviewed on MDN to help cement the learning…was fun picking my favorite flags! This is a good example why I’ve decided to restart my @self_teach_dev as a complete beginner — because there have been so many advances since I was last engaged and because reviewing basics is always good.
For my delve back into PHP (my favorite aspect of webdev right now) I’ve rediscovered the foreach consruct 🙂
Other non-deving stuff from past weeks: making sure I get enough VitD and another movie to add to my top 10 list: Laurie Anderson’s “Heart of a Dog“
