I mentioned in my Why Arcturix post the WHY for this adventure and the reason I wanted to get involved in coding/ AI. Too many people consume rather than create and having been involved in web design for much of my life, I've always been limited by the functionality I can add to a site.
One of my funniest memories as a young teen was rebuilding my own version of Neopets - except EVERY outcome and every interaction wasn't coded, it was a separate page. This gets complicated when you have currencies, inventories and dozens of interactive elements. If I remember correctly, it was THOUSANDS of pages. A learning curve nonetheless.
I do some freelancing in my spare time and I recently discovered the joy of Wix - a fantastic tool for basic web design and even creating member accounts, stores and community spaces. HOWEVER, it has its limitations and the tool I wanted to build was outside of the off-the-shelf functionality.
Enter WIX VELO. The 'advanced' side of Wix, where I can fully customise by site.
"Velo is a full-stack development platform that empowers you to rapidly build, manage and deploy professional web apps."
HOWEVER, once again I have no knowledge of where or how to get started - until I found a course on Codecademy: Create a Professional Website with Velo by Wix
NB: I have a PRO account for some of these courses.
If it's a success, I'll share my progress here.
If it's a failure, I'll probably still do the same.
If you know any other tools/ courses that would be great - please let me know.
