Hi. My name is Ken. I used to work in software development.

I have been using repl.it to do various HTML/CSS/JavaScript code projects, and also to learn Python3. I really don't know how I found it. I was probably just searching for a place where I could code online.

Since I don't own a computer right now, and am dependent upon the local library's computers, I can't install Python3 anywhere. If the computers don't have something installed, I have to use portable apps or whatever I can find online...like this website. So, having repl.it has been really great because I can run Python3 here and learn. I tried the PythonAnywhere website. It is good, too. But, this website is quicker and easier to use to just run some Py3 code.

Over the past couple of years I have been running through a lot of Lynda.com / LinkedIn Learning video courses. They are really good. I definitely recommend them. They have really good instructors who work in the industry. And, they try to keep up to date with what they are teaching. The Python courses there were very helpful. I can also recommend their CSS Flexbox/Grid/Responsive Web Design courses. They are teaching the current concepts with good teachers and good hands-on examples. I would also like to REALLY recommend the Regular Expression course at Lynda.com. RegExp was something I just couldn't get a grasp on until I took that course. The step by step examples are fantastic. It is a bit long; but, it covers a lot. And, even if you won't use everything explained there, you will understand a lot more.
