You can't believe it but I spent a week on this simplest ever task.
Let me show you what I did. I didn't create a Github account yet so I just attached the screenshots right here:
I know it's not a brilliant webpage but it IS something to me.
About me: I'm a mechanical engineer (well actually, just a technician) but thinking about becoming a developer. I'm 41 years old. I have some background (worked with C++ and Qt in the past), also had several courses in Java in college but now I don't remember anything.
I found the tutorials mentioned in the description of this project super easy. I did all of them on-they-fly just in several days. But then I started my own page from scratch... OMG how hard it was. I turned out I didn't remember anything, any single word or tag. I had to read everything again and I found I saw many things like I saw them for the first time. LOL.
CSS was another challenge. Again, looked super-easy in the beginning but in practice... just nothing worked.
Finally, I've got what a wanted (well, up to 70%) but I'm pretty happy with it.
