  1. ↩️ In reply to Justin Avery
    I’d consider myself a beginner; I found it very approachable, and it strengthened my core JS knowledge, making me more confident to explore more advanced topics. I think it’s best...
  2. ↩️ In reply to Andy Bell
    I’ve been thinking about this ever since you posted it, and this realisation resonates really strongly with me. Coding is a means to an end for me now, rather than...

    📅 Sadly, I won’t be able to attend, but if you’ve ever been curious about content ownership, IndieWeb, or new ways to tinker on your website, Homebrew Website Club London is...
