Learning Diary:

In this unit I implemented 2 different libraries in order to increase the ease of access of my website. The first library (PushbarJS) was used to create a better navigation bar for the website. By blurring the rest of the page, it helps to draw attention to the open menu, as well as being easier to close than the original navigation bar which was implemented in Unit 5. The second library (JQuery) was used to implement a tabs menu in the locations page. It adds more dynamic and liveliness to the website allowing users to easily switch between the different locations. I have never worked with either of these two libraries before so there was a learning curve in order to add them both to my website. It is great to expand my portfolio of libraries that I have worked with and can easily bring out if I ever need them in the future.
