A New Place for Social Content Many sites already exist where users can share photos, stories, and even play games with their friends. However, most of the sites we hear about are larger, corporate-run organizations that don't necessarily have the user in mind. A new site in the game, with all these features and more, aims to change this. The site, Uglek.com, is built with the essentials of online communities and news platforms combined. With easily organized sections for user-generated content as well as groups, games, messages, and a self-curated feed of content, you can find a lot of useful features on this site. The site is also quickly gaining popularity and is driving engaged traffic. Built with Django, the site is a sleek and robust application, employing features to keep it secure. With email verification and spam protection, you can be sure no accounts are fake and the community is wholly human and alive. Uglek is protected from fake and malicious users, so it's a safer and better place to share public content than Facebook or Instagram. This website is free to use and shows some advertisements to pay for maintenance costs. There's some great things to read on here, and if you're interested in an independent, clean online community, you should visit Uglek.com.

This is another photo from the trail near Rock Creek camp. There were a lot of snakes on this trail, sunning themselves and slithering away as we walked up to them. It's awesome to see some wildlife while I'm out adventuring.

I went on some awesome hikes in Washington this week. This is a picture of some wildflowers on a trail near Rock Creek campground. This was a good place to stop before our drive back to Portland.

I took some awesome photos of Heather Lake a few days ago. It's a steep hike up to a beautiful alpine lake with snowmelt and waterfalls. We spent the night there enjoying the nature and some awesome fires. It would be a fun place to packraft sometime.

I implemented an anti-spam API on Uglek to protect against spam posts. The API I am using, OopSpam, gives posts a score based on IP address and content. I use this score to determine which posts to accept on the website and which posts to hide for further reference. When posts are flagged as spam, they are no longer public and must be made public again or deleted by the administrator. Though the captcha has mostly been effective at preventing spam so far, I think it was a good idea to implement another solution. They also give me 40 free API calls (spam checks) per month, so that should be plenty as I'm not seeing that much posting yet. I've also done some reorganization of the buttons in the sidebar and added some links to the site for groups and games. I added in the code for groups I wrote, which seems to be working properly. Below: A screenshot of the code that checks user IP and flags posts as spam (API key hidden)

How to Learn to Code Online for Free I learned to code online, and more and more people are choosing internet curriculum for their coding education. There are many places where you can learn to code and solve coding challenges for free online. Learning to code online has its advantages, as many platforms offer an integrated curriculum in the debugger to help you diagnose errors in your code and solve them. I used Codecademy.com when I began learning code. Their curriculum is free to get started, and it is quite comprehensive. They offer courses from fundamentals to advanced concepts in JavaScript, HTML, Python, and more. It can be easier to learn to code from software like this rather than attend an in-person or online class with lectures, as the curriculum is much more hands-on. The website guides you through everything you need to know, and you will complete projects online in steps. These projects begin by teaching basic concepts, and they continue into more advanced lessons. Learning to code can be a daunting challenge. It comes with a steep learning curve and one that is not easy to climb without help. Often when coding, simply searching the internet for the error message you are getting or the problem you are having is not enough to solve the problem. This is why it is good to have guidance when coding, especially so you have best practices down and few errors at the point when you need to ask for help. If you do need help with your code, sites such as StackOverflow.com provide great resources for asking coding questions and help when you get stuck coding. There are even more resources out there for learning to code. Simply searching the web for coding lessons and challenges presents many resources you can use to learn. Hopefully what I have discussed in this post will point you in the right direction, and give you some idea of how to learn to code.
