I, @alwaysFlOoReD , will participate to the next Devember. My Devember will be to make a personal website . I promise I will program for my Devember for at least an hour, every day of the next December. I will also write a daily public devlog and will make the produced code publicly available on the internet. No matter what, I will keep my promise.
I want to make a website to host my blatherings, but most important, to host my pics that I can then link to from other forums. I want control over what happens to my pics, not be held ransom like Photobucket did. I have almost no knowledge of how to do this but I think I’m going to host with AWS. From my bit of research there will be next to no cost unless my website gets extraordinarily popular. I already have a domain name thru Namecheap, I just have to figure out how to make this happen.
About a year ago I had this idea and bought some books thru kindle.
-Hosting Static Websites on AWS by Meg Brown
-Overview of Amazon Web Services by AWS whitepaper
-Cloud Computing for complete beginners by Ikram Hawramani
I will have to skim over them again as I never did carry thru with my plan.
I didn’t get to re-reading my books. Instead I went online using DDG to search “website building with AWS”. I found and bookmarked a couple sites;
For whatever reason I thought that AWS had something to use to build a website, That doesn’t seem to be the case. They host the site and I have to upload my already built site to AWS.
So now I searched “building a website” and it seems most recommendations on https://www.quora.com/How-does-one-build-a-website-from-scratch
are for “Wordpress”.
Tomorrow I will do some research on Wordpress and maybe start on building my site to upload to AWS.
Anyone have any other recommendations?
PS; This “devember” seems like a good way to keep motivated. I was quite tired after work and normally would have just vegged, instead I followed thru on my pledge. Yay!
Udemy seem to have plenty of good courses. They do sales quite often, so worth picking a few up when they are cheap.
I have a big pile of shame in there though, things like this help keep me motivated though!
Looked at Ghost, too expensive for me and I would need coding knowledge anyway so I will learn. It turns out that I have already been doing some practice with html5 on khanacademy and freecodecamp, but that was over a year ago…I forgot about that. I also bought 2 courses on Udemy;
Build Creative Website Using HTML5, CSS3, jQuery & Bootstrap
By Irfan Dayan
Build a real world responsive website with Html 5 css 3 & JS
By Adil Ahmed
I will start on these tomorrow.
The previous 2 days I put in about .5 hours each reading various web pages. Today I decided I needed to actually do something, so went back to Khanacadamy and reviewed some html that I started 3 years ago. Ill post some code when I get to my computer.

I found a page showing my progress. It was almost exactly 3 years ago that I joined freecodecamp. Spent one day there and haven’t been back til yesterday.
