Wow, I realised that after all my time on Replit ask, I never actually made an Introduction. So… here we go!
Who am I?
I am @NateDhaliwal on Replit and on Replit Ask, and I recently got Guidance Counselor here! (Yay! Thank you, guys!)
What do I code?
So I code in Python, HTML and CSS (like, anyone can do CSS, it’s a no-brainer)
I used to do Scratch (I’m natme6677 there, you might have seen me before)
I did Micro:bit, MakeCode Arcade, and CoSpaces EDU in school.
I also did some MIT App Inventor in another class.
You could say I’m a Jack-of-all-trades, master of none.
Soo… yeah! That’s about it!
P.S. Replit Ask is wonderful!
Hi @NateDhaliwal great introduction. I wouldn’t say you are master of none - you’ve been really helpful on Ask so far. Keep up the great work!
Which language do you prefer so far?
I prefer Python - it’s my favourite!
I’m a huge Python fan myself. Was introduced to it when I got my first Raspberry Pi in 2012. Before that I’d been coding and teaching solely in Visual Basic.
Also, anyone can do CSS but not anyone can do good CSS
Some of us have been here a long time with a lot of accomplishments and never made an intro. Good job creating a nice intro for us!
Exactly! I would argue CSS is the hardest part of the front-end. It’s pretty easy to learn, but it is extremely hard to actually create nice-looking websites. (At least for me)
Yes I lack the artistic touch. CSS is so self-explanatory and straightforward, making the coding part easy, but making good aesthetics is so hard.
I usually have a nice idea in my head about what I want my site to look like, but it’s super hard to convert those thoughts to actual code. I’m not sure how people remember all of these CSS rules, I only know the extremely common ones.
