Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
Using Anki as a studying tool
So I have used Anki in the past, but there is so much it seems to learn when it comes to CSS. I am a little past halfway into the deep dive when someone suggested using Anki for this and I am trying to figure out what are key items that I should be studying throughout? I do plan on running through the deep dive again, along with making some projects on my own, but I feel like my abilities are lacking from where they are assume in the course. What should I put into my Anki decks to help me remember features that are used frequently in CSS?
Me again. Search the shared decks they already have some pretty good ones, even if it has say jQuery and your not ready for that still keep it in that way you will be sub consciously learning the syntax ready for when you start. Also if struggling with the deep dive in CSS maybe spend the day (as grip as this is going to sound it would be worth it) Extracting all the stuff they are teaching in the deep dive into your own deck, will be a laborious task I know. Then you have the whole deep dive set up for spaced repetition learning.
As a side note I did see a deck on there that was Treehouse content so must be made by a user or staff member. CodePen is also a great tool just load it up see the popular ones and read through the code. If they have an element with position: relative; research the other values you can have and change it to see what happens. Same with display. Say its set to inline change to block see what it does to the page.
If you like a page on CodePen signup its free and star them, then if you forget how to do something then you can go back to it. I suppose at some point your not going to remember how to do a specific task but as long as you know what you want to achieve and that it is feasible then fire up Google and find the solution when you do you will be like "Yeah thats it, i remember now".
Thanks a lot I will definitely check them out! I am deployed right now and have an endless amount of time to study, so I have been spending about 8 hours a day on this, but I am trying to make sure that I understand everything. I did find out that What I was asking the first time I asked a question here I found out they hadn't gone over. I just want to make sure that I do everything I can to help me learn. This is exactly what I was looking for. I was looking for a place where I can actually talk to people other than stack overflow where it seems everyone is much more developed experience wise.
Awesome, thanks dude. On a separate note, what would you recommend for a beginner language wise? I was going to get started on JS, and then work my way to ruby or python. How effective is treehouse alone as far as developing as a programmer? I heard that code school is a good place to go after you're done with the track here.
