    Techniques orientations: web development with Ruby, widges, Git

  4. Goals for the upcoming week:
    Start explicit tasks on Discourse platform plug-ins and AWS
    Learn more about AWS and try to set up instance on it
    Look forward to subgroup partition result

  5. Details of a task:
    Layout task – to get familiar with HTML/CSS/JS
    Learn Bootstrap and how to add customized CSS
    Use three column website layout
    Choose nav-pills and adjust colors

I was not very experienced with front-end codes, frames and templates. Suggested by Vrinda on a meeting, I tried to learn these knowledges on https://www.w3schools.com. Later, I also learned more about widgets and classes from James’ video Screencast of the basics of the sidebar component, as well as basics on javascript / ember
