- What do you find challenging about coding?
How open ended it is. There is so much that can be done, different paths to take, and nothing is really going to tell you exactly how to do it. You can look up steps along the way, but nothing is really straight forward.
- Talk about a project that disappointed you. What would you change?
Probably my portfolio. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great. I spent a lot of time trying to use different parallax methods, and by the end of it, I had to rush through some of the others parts. I have a lot to learn when it comes to design. All in all, even though I would like for the final product to have been a little better, it was a nice practice in different styles.

This is literally the same question with two more answers and some different wording…? https://ahrefs.com/blog/seo-basics/ is about the basics, and it is a pretty lengthy article, that pulls it’s punches in the sense of how much information is being thrown at you. It talks about figuring out what people are likely to be searching, then optimizing your page for fast loading, mobile friendliness, and so much more. This really is a gargantuan topic.
