Recently finished Christina Truong‘s CSS Essential Training course on LinkedIn Learning and I have to say I enjoyed it. The advanced pseudo-selector and responsive web design was really well explained and easy to follow. I would definitely recommend the course.
In addition I had fun with the design and color scheme. I even expanded on the design by adding a content-card class to make the “Education” section easier to read. The page is a portfolio/resume page that is designed to be responsive.
You can take a look at the product of the course here.
TL;DR: Installed Ubuntu with WSL, in order to replace WAMP software and use the LAMP stack. Steps here.
I’ve recently made the switch back from MacOS to Windows 10. However, one of the biggest issues for me has been the lack of familiarity in web development tools for Windows and quickly grew to miss MAMP Pro on my MacBook. I though about spinning up a virtual machine, but didn’t want to waste system resources for a simple LAMP stack. I researched alternatives and found Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). WSL basically allows you to install your favorite Linux distro, meaning you can install a LAMP stack on Windows as a viable means to replace WAMP software. First you’ll need to install Ubuntu. You can find the instructions on how to do so on ubuntu.com.
How to install WAMP/LAMP stack on Windows using Ubuntu:
Open Ubuntu app: Start menu > Type “Ubuntu” > Click Ubuntu
Update Ubuntu: type sudo apt-get update
Install Apache: type sudo apt-get install apache2 type y when prompted
Test Apache Install Start Apache by typing sudo apache2ctl start
Note: You may receive a firewall warning, if so, click “Allow access”
In browser type: http://localhost
Type sudo apt-get install php libapache2-mod-php mcrypt php-mysql
*Installs PHP and other modules to connect Apache to PHP and MySQL
