Hey “NotJustTheMeat” here!
Yesterday was a pretty good, I learned how to make forms using HTML & CSS correctly. It was a more to it than I thought!!! Before we started working on forms I thought the structure of a form looked like this:
<input type=”text” name=”firstname”><br>
<input type=”text” name=”lastname”>
This is just a simple form but it is not complete.
“Well Andrew tell us why.”
Well what makes this incomplete is pretty obvious; well if your knowledgable on forms, but if you were like me it looks fine. But even if it’s a simple form it still wouldn’t work if you added this to your site. “Why is that?”
Well because it doesn’t have a form action=” ” or method=” “. What are those you ask? The form action=” ” defines the action to be performed when the form is submitted, and method=” ” attribute specifies the HTTP method to be used when submitting the form data. This is just the beginning there is a lot more that goes into making a form and I would not be able to cover it all in this post.
Next is the git and github.
First do you know what git or github is or how to use it?
Well if you don’t then I will try and explain it to the best of my knowledge and ability.
Git is a (DVCS)Distributed Version Control System, a type of version control. Version control is a system that records changes to a file or set of files over time so that you can recall specific versions later. Basically git is a source code repository and is the most popular. Major companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google use it to store some of their code. What does it do for you? Lets say you have two people working on the same file and they try to upload it at the same time it will merge that file for you.
Ok lets say your playing a game on Xbox One and Windows with the same account, and you are playing one and your friend is playing on the other. Now you have the same account so if you save one it is saved on the other except you can’t play or save at the same time. But what if you could? That is why git is so extraordinary, it is able to let you work on the same game(file) and save(merge) files at the same time. Well first you have to make sure its ok with other person(s) first, because you don’t want someone saving over you file without your permission. Right? I know I wouldn’t lol.
Github is a web-based Git and internet hosting service. It offers all of the distributed version control and source code management functionality of Git as well as adding its own features. The good thing about this is that you don’t have to download anything you can just work from your terminal and have it already hosted from free or for a fee if your a business. These two are a good resource if you are in the tech field and I think its really kool all together.
Well that was my thoughts and knowledge of the subjects noted. Hope you guys enjoyed and stay tuned for more of me,
