Her github blog site is so terrible and non-responsive. Has she even tried looking at it on a mobile device?

Funnily, in the phase-0-code directory there was a *bonus* challenge in week 2: Responsive design. It says in the code itself:

/* You'll want to make the site responsive and nice looking here. Have fun!*/

I guess that didn't happen because… not a second of extra work for THAT web dev coder queen Jenna. finger

I broke her game by using negatives, fractions, out.of bound positive integers (like 9) and finaly text. Testing, what's that???

Hi Jenna!

 

I just went and did the same thing, you get it wrong but it doesn't break the site.

The "guess" line needs to have a section of code to validate that the values can only be {1,2,3,4,5,6} and if not say {invalid value, only dice numbers apply}  

Instead of a popup box to guess it should be embedded in the screen…. I'm not a lady coder, but I work in lady IT (and my boss is a MAN! but his next two bosses are women and I am technically also a boss, so you know) but that website just does not seem that difficult…. I had friends in the into CS classes (which are really f**king hard) and they coded more impressive things 2 weeks in.

Just coming here to say the same thing as the rest of you. Her site looks like shit on my mobile.

She seems to think only one page has mobile issues, and gives very specific requirements for any feedback confuused

Yesssssssssss! This is why I applied to the Dev Bootcamp program, to develop the skills to dream up and deploy sites/apps entirely from scratch. –> http://www.JennaAndersen.com <– went live today and I am so freaking proud of this site. It's built using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Jquery, and Bootstrap and though I have no doubt I'll find this effort juvenile in another three months, for now I do a little happy dance over this manifestation of my hard work since I started learning to code in January of this year. I am pretty happy with all of the pages (three of them even look good on mobile!) but the works page layout is pretty weak on desktop, and certainly graphic design is not an area where I currently excel. If you have any ASK feedback (actionable, specific, kind) on the design I would love to hear it! –> http://www.jennaandersen.com <– #womencoders #femalesintech #femalecoders #leanin #changetheratio #ilooklikeanengineer

Someone has suggested adjusting the font to make the page better from a design perspective, and Jenna replies: 

typography is where I have the hardest time! I think if I want to be able to use *any* font out there I would need to turn them into pictures/buttons. I should look and see if I can hard a font consultant for my projects!


No comment on the Freudian way she's planning to convince a font consultant to help her – but is creating a selection of fonts/ using a consistent font really that difficult in comparison to creating the entire website?  It makes me question how much help she's already had to create the sorry mess.

All that money just to do a crappy job on her website, and she's still outsourcing basic tasks…

She made it 'responsive' in the sense that stuff kinda shifts around when you resize the screen. But they don't do so in any way that makes sense. It looks like utter garbage at all sizes, but especially on tablet and below. If she was going to use Bootstrap she could have made a simple, clean, responsive layout before adding the obnoxious logos and ugly colours. 

 

It annoys me that her code isn't well commented, documented or doc-blocked. This should be a very simple thing for a newbie to do, it's a great way to reflect on your code and what it does, and hugely rewarding when you can look at your work and see how nicely documented it is. I'm not sure if this is a failing on Jenna's part or on Dev Bootcamp's but it seems like something they really should be getting them to do in these early stages. It's such a good habit for any coder to get into.

Apart from everything else, that is such a stupid boring game.  I can understand why it would be fun for a kid to play that with a real die, but it's awful having the poor little T1 cartoon looking sad and shocked at the word"Nope" just because you don't get the one in six guess right. Maybe if she made the wording a bit more upbeat, it would be more fun to keep trying.  But the way she's presenting it, a kid is just going to feel like a failure for not guessing the "right" number.

http://www.jennaandersen.com/projects/jsdiegame.html

The die doesn't even "roll" on the screen. And why do you have to refresh the screen? Couldn't she put an extra option in there for Play Again?

I find it a real testament to her laziness that she hotlinked all the images she's using for that die game from other people's sites instead of taking 5 seconds to rehost them. If you're going to be lazy and steal other people's images at least upload them to your own site. I know I'm erring on BEC territory here but god, she is the QUEEN of half-assing.

What the ever loving f**k is a font consultant and why would Jenna need one?

My team works a lot with electronic documents and sometimes we have issues if the correct font package is not installed for the code to read….. so why does she need a font consultant? Does my company need to hire one?

 

Note: I googled font consultant (a phrase that my brain no longer registers as words) and its mostly stuff on choosing a font for resumes etc or creating custom fonts…

Throw in San Francisco and I find people who include that as their job… they are typographic consultants… and the top one worked on Apple products…. so yeah Jenna, good luck.

I guess she got tired of the lack of response on snapchat, because she's got a new instagram post up. A wedding shot where the Pretty Light totally obliterates the bride's face.

Yet another "how can she POSSIBLY think that picture says anything good about her photography skills?" moment.

I wonder if Jenna will find these meeting up to her ASK requirements?

Comments on her IG:

Your works page looks really strange when viewed in portrait view on iPad. Also your logo changes size to be the size of the icons on mobile browsers as well. I understand what you were going for with resizing the logo for different browsers, but it's barely legible.
 
And:
You'd be able to use any font you wanted, but keep in mind that unless your reader has that font downloaded on his/her computer or phone, they're not going to be able to see it. So yes, graphics will show any font to anyone, since the font is part of the graphic, but coding with the font will only be viewable to some people. That's why most sites are coded with a basic font that most people have, with "fun" fonts found only in images. Hope that helps! @thatwife @[redacted]
