echo "hello Ig friends !!" 👋☺️
I'm back, I had to stop using IG for two reasons:
01. Deadlines 🗓️
10. Vacations after deadlines🌴🌞
I had to focus on 01 so I had to starve my distractions and I had to enjoy 10 without using the mobile because I wanted to genuinely enjoy every moment I was having 🕶️💙
Now, I'm back to the office and this semester I won't be teaching at university so I'm gonna have more time⌚ to work on side projects and other ideas I have (also to interact with you 😜). I took this picture doing probably the last commit of a project I have been working at office for 6 monthts. Now, we are doing the spring plans for the next one. I'm gonna use Sails! :3
This is my other cactus with the Android certification sticker I got when I passed the exam. I didnt know it could grow that much 🌵
Not much to talk about. I keep fixing or improving some details I noticed thanks to the feedback I got with the alpha testing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
019 / 100 - Accessibility revisited. #accessibility#nodiscrimination
Got a very intriguing email this afternoon from someone using one of my sites saying that their screen readers were unable to be used on my site.
This got my jumping down the rabithole that is accessibility.
Therefore today for the #todds100daysofcode and #100daysofcode challenges it was all about researching and ensuring that my website meets the WCAG 2.0 guidelines for accessibility.
WCAG 2.0 is a technical standard developed under the Web Accessibility Initiative of the World Wide Web Consortium, and is basically a check list of how to ensure that a website meets standards of accessibility for its users.
If you haven't heard of this before and are a developer of any kind I definitely recommend checking it out 👍🏻
How accessible do you believe your sites need to be?

There are several DATA TYPES in programming. Here is six of them!
BOOLEAN (bool) really only has two self-explanatory values: True and False. Boolean values usually come up in conditional checks like if-else statements and while loops. For example, if you are reading this, it is True that you are on Instagram! 😉
INTEGER (int) refers to whole numbers. These numbers can be positive, negative or zero.
FLOATING POINT (float) are numbers with decimals, or with a decimal point. Floats can have the same value as their respective int counterparts; they are just shown differently. For example, 1.0 is the 'float' representation of 'int' value 1.
STRINGS (str) are combinations of symbols, numbers, letters and/or whitespace. They ALWAYS have single or triple speech marks at the left and right ends like these: 'string 1' ■ "string2" ■ '''string3''' ■ """string4""" LISTS (list) are encased within square brackets [ ]. Usually lists only contain a certain type of data - integers only for example - but it can contain several types, including another list! For example: [ 1, 'Ain', 4.5, [ "another list!" ] ] .
DICTIONARIES (dict) store key-value pairs. Imagine an English dictionary: the WORD is the "key" while the word's MEANING is the "value". We mainly use dictionaries to store all the other types of data, and search specific pieces of data using their respective "keys".
MUTABILITY - ability to change
Some data types can be changed once created. Lists and dictionaries can be changed by changing the list items or key-value pairs respectively. Therefore, lists and dictionaries are both MUTABLE.
