Four of my Favorite Websites for Learning Code so far

Future of this website

As you know, I’ve stopped blogging on this website on a regular schedule so I will re-brand this website by changing the title.

I’ll be changing the name from coldstargamer.com to alexlegard.ca.

Soon I will be attending school to learn web development so I feel it’s extremely important for me to have a personal website so I can showcase my skills. By the time I’m finished with the program, hopefully I won’t have to rely on WordPress to host this website.

The only thing stopping him is that he doesn’t know how to operate the ship’s Spore drive.
