Great Reference Website for Coding

Sept 14, 2014

The best website I have found and that I constantly use as a reference and tutorial for learning HTML, CSS and JavaScript is w3schools. I know this is the site that we are presently using for our class and thus also recommended by our teacher, but I just have not found a better one out there. They make learning easy with the fact that we can actually see the examples and even modify the code to see what it does. It's also a great reference when wanting to just look up something, like what a certain tag does—it's well designed and it's easy to find what one is looking for.

And, last but not least, it has the very best Color Picker that I've come across!

Cinque Terre, Italy

Sept 7, 2014

The region in Northern Italy commonly called Cinque Terre—meaning Five Lands—could possibly be one of the most beautiful places on earth. Five quaint villages perched on cliffs that overlook the Mediterreanean Sea and joined by scenic, winding, pedestrian paths make it unique and picturesque. Whether you're on a small boat, walking from one village to the next or sitting in the terrace of one of the many cafes and sipping a capuccino, the tranquil blue sea and the stone houses that surround you will no doubt leave you with the desire to visit this magical place again and again.

This is a great website that offers lodging options when staying in Cinque Terre!
