It’s been a while. The good news is the family and I are all as healthy as can be expected in the middle of a global pandemic. It also means that things have not entirely gone according to plan (If they had I would be in second year of a Bachelor of Education degree). But, its perfectly okay to press pause when necessary.
So I am currently not enrolled for an education degree, but I will again. I am aiming to go back to studying in 2023 and although the shortest duration is 4 years I have set a schedule that will probably have me complete the degree in 7 years.
And I have the teeniest bit of time on my hands. I decided that I want to build a library web app with WordPress for my tutor centre. A few years ago I picked up a copy of Building Web Apps with WordPress by Brian Messenlehner and Jason Coleman after hearing Jason speak at WordCamp Cape Town in 2017 with the idea of learning a bit more. (In 2017 I was very much more focused on the website design and development journey).
I am very close to an absolute beginner when it comes to PHP. So when I read the introduction I saw that I need to take a few steps back and dive back into learning PHP. With that in mind, I have logged into my neglected SitePoint premium membership and have chosen to work using PHP & MySQL: Novice to Ninja.
I have also decided to blog this journey – because, I like seeing others learn.
So, here’s to a coding adventure.
Love and coding,
