As I have already told you a few weeks ago, I have been working on another top-secret project. Now is not the time to spill all of the beans because it is not quite ready yet, but I can spill some of the beans at this time.
Quite simply, I am working on developing an independent website. Since I know so very little about just how to do this, I have been learning how through the video tutorials at [Lynda.com]. If you take some time to check out what they have to offer, you might find some subjects that you would like to learn a lot more about, such as their Adobe Photoshop courses. Be assured that I tried several other leaning options, like [Khan Academy], [Codecademy], [Code School] and the hundreds (thousands?) of YouTube videos available, but what Lynda had to offer was the best option for me.
I have finally settled upon working with [PHP], which is a server-side scripting language. What? Yeah, see what I mean?
Alas, please don’t ask too many questions at this time. For I am still mostly in the dark about many of the details. Thankfully, there is such a thing as a [software framework] that saves a lot of steps throughout the development process. It is when I ran across something called [Ruby on Rails] on a YouTube video that started me to thinking that I just might be able to bring this dream/nightmare to fruition (naturally-speaking, of course). Since I switched from Ruby to PHP, I am now working with the [Laravel] framework.
The reason why I switched from Ruby to PHP was on account of not being completely confident in Ruby being able to handle all I wanted the site to offer and not wanting to take the time to find out whether it would or not. Whereas, I ran across several indications of PHP being able to handle it all before I made the switch.
Yeah, what a long, strange trip I have been taking. I hope we both like the destination when the time comes.
P.S.: What you just read was written before I started having so much “fun.” To put it bluntly, for every step forward I have taken, I have fallen down the flight of stairs that appear just before I can take the next step. As it stands now, I cannot use either Laravel or Ruby on Rails because of something being messed up with this computer. What I need can be done on Arlynda’s computer, but that is another nightmare I do not want to deal with. So, I will be treading water until we can download and install our free copy of [Windows 10] around the last of July. Oh yeah, there is going to be a rest of this story to come (probably several chapters of it). Sigh.
