Front end Developer
So carrying on, in a similar subject to the previous full stack developer opportunities. Another high demand skill is Front end Developer.
In fact this article covers becoming 'Front End, Back End, or DevOps Developer'
Again worth checking out, so what is the catch here, you often here people say about free stuff 'if it is too good to be true, it probably is' well free code camp certainly does not fit in that statement, courses are excellent, help and support is also excellent. In fact SwitchUp has a review here
If you are already following Paignton Code Club or the South Devon Tech jam then those of you who are following the Responsive Web Design course are already making the first steps.
Full stack development
looking at the West Country Jobs website. It looks like they are, or were, looking for Full Stack Developers.
As code club is about inspiring people to learn IT / Development skills, it goes without saying that this HAS to, in some way, lead to opportunities for paid employment.
Free Code Camp, offer a course on Full Stack Development.
Python Text Adventure Game
Welcome to the 2nd day of the EU Code Week activities, presented as part of Paignton Library code club.
So today, there is an activity on Building a text based adventure game using the Python Programming language.
As with other activities you can probably use Repl.it to complete this and collaborate with others.
This activity is also mentioned on the going further but is presented here as part of EU Code Week.
Udemy Scratch course
So if you are just starting out with programming. Scratch is considered a good starting point.
Udemy offer the following
Free Scratch Programming Tutorial – Scratch Game Programming for Young Adults | Udemy
Other than the support offered by Udemy, I am happy to support via the Qoto discourse forum.
For more info on the Paignton Code Club please see the About page.
If you use a range of providers then you learn skills, perhaps in a different way. Learn what works for you and gain better understanding of topics and yourself.
FireFox Password Manager
Version 78.3.0esr of the Firefox web browser, that comes with Debian 10, has a new look password manager.
The screenshot below Does NOT contain any sensitive data.
So unlike the previous version, which had a very basic interface, the new look password manager lists accounts down the side, while the right hand side of the window has the account details, user id and password (masked of course). So a much cleaner interface.
This is much better than the previous version.
You can access the password manager from
Edit —> Preferences —> Privacy and Security (tab) —> Saved Logins
From here you can manage the sites you have saved logins for.
