P2PU Webmaker challenge - Recap

I Underestimated this course at first because it was for Beginners, but after the Writing Html by hand Task and the HTML hunting task i discovered new ways of learning and understanding HTML better.

I have been introduced to New HTML5 elements and basic Structure of Webpages and hope to learn about more elements and their use.

I've been told CSS is the Bomb! - HTML seems like the skeleton while CSS is the flesh, i can't wait to get on that.

The DNS, Webhost exercise wasn't new to me but i did it anyways, I look forward to more challenging tasks.

Thanks to P2PU for this

Hosting and DNS

In My last blog post i talked about how DNS works, and in this post i'll talk about selecting the right Web Host.

If you're new to these terms, a Web-host is A server where your web content will be stored and made available at all times. Selecting the right webhost is crucial to the success and smooth operation of any website so this process should be carefully researched.

Features i look out for when selecting a web-host.

The DNS Chat

Computers connected to the internet or Private network Identify themselves with Internet protocol Addresses (IP), e.g 88.198.171.206

But as we use different internet resources every day, typing http://31.13.81.23 In the Browser address bar is hard to remember and that's where DNS comes in. It is a domain name system that translates user-friendly Domain names into IP addresses to locate resources on the internet.

Example:  The Domain name facebook.com when translated by DNS helps locate the server (31.13.81.23) on which the queried resources is stored.

Notepad++ The Text Editor that chose me :D

Text Editors - A Coders' best weapon used to express thoughts and ideas
Different Operating systems have pre-installed Text Editors which can perform basic functions, but there are advanced text editors which can do so much more than edit text.

The P2PU task has suggested some OS specific Text editors user can try out and select what works best for them. I've had Notepad ++ Installed on my Microsoft Windows Operating system when playing around with python, and it soon became my favourite webpage / template editing tool.

School Of Webcraft - HTML By Hand Task


iHate My writing



Some people remember codes easier when handwritten - I think that is the aim of this task.
After writing 3 draft copies, i got one worthy of posting (with some errors)

I Originally posted The Webmaker 101 Introduction at Ngbuzz Forum Using SMF.
