Back on track?

Back on track?

The last couple of days I seem to be doing better at refocusing on the task-at-hand.  Last night I finally completed the tutorial I started on "Photoshop CS5 for Web" on ( I have been on for almost as long as I have been working with Drupal.  I find video tutorials are the way to go for learning.  I guess that is because I'm more of a "visual" person.  I learn better by seeing rather than reading (though I have read through many self-taught disciplines over the years).

Before going through the Photoshop tutorial I also went through:

  • Drupal 7 Essential Training 1/13
  • Drupal 7: Creating and Editing Custom Themes 2/13
  • Google Analytics Essential Training (2010) 4/13
  • CSS: Page Layouts 5/13
  • Responsive Design Fundamentals 5/14
  • Creating a Responsive Web Design 5/14
  • Photoshop CS5 for the Web 6/14

The best thing about the tutorials is that I get a certificate that is easily shared on LinkedIn (which can't hurt).

Since I finished the Photoshop tutorial I'm now back on track with learning Views.  I am now engaged with the course "Drupal 7: Reporting and Visualizing Data" which deals with handling and manipulating data, as well as how to present it in a node.  So far it's been making a lot of sense (and of course there have been the thoughts of, "OH!! That's how you do that!!!"). 

Now I have to take a break and go to my part-time gig, but I will defiantly be back to the tutorial after I am done and back home.
