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 Lynda.com (http://www.lynda.com/). I have been on Lynda.com 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.
