Until a few weeks ago my frontend programming experience ended with jQuery so I decided to do something about it and start getting up to speed with modern frontend development. This ranged from starting to mess around with React, to using ES6, to integrating webpack and Babel in these projects. I’ve been using Sublime Text for the past 6 years but am switching to Visual Code Studio as my primary editor.
The other project was inspired by the Sleeping Giants twitter account which calls out major brands for advertiser on hate-based sites. It’s still a work in progress but the intent is to automate the capture of the ad on the site and the identification of the advertiser’s twitter account. The next step is to broadcast this information back on Twitter - either automatically or surfacing the content so people can do it themselves.
