Well I had an unexpected call the other day, asking me about my coding background (all of 6 weeks HTML/CSS) and to complete a development task ahead of a potential interview. Task is the overview page of a multiple page site but covers
- flex grid
- DOM manipulation
oh yes, and needs to be BEM CSS (thats a first for me so doing it all in normal SCSS (another first) then transposing)… The company’s framework of choice is Angular - something I had not even looked at before Thursday!!! but hey, looks good if you try (at least I hope it does) so have plunged in to the world of Angular, Bootstrap4, FontAwesome, Routing (and may be even some dynamic style passing through a component)…
I have to say (not bragging) that actually the use of Angular so far has been straightforward - using the Angular Tutorial (https://angular.io/tutorial) as the base and Google for anything that doesnt get covered there I have all 3 elements above baselined. The need finessed of course but making very good progress.
I am not expecting the call for interview BUT this is a great real-world exercise for me to dig in to and means I can add “Angular” to my CV and continue to develop in it to build my skills…
