What do you find challenging about coding?

Creating things from scratch. I can sit here all day looking at my computer knowing what I want to make but not how to write it. …

Tell us about something you learned this week.

There was a lot of focus this week on OOP (Object Oriented Programming) and I think I have a fairly good grasp on it so far. This week I learned about something called a Hackathon. A hackathon is when you get together with a few fellow web devs or coders…

Describe one thing you’re learning in class today. Why do you think it will be important in your future web development journey?

Today we talked about OOP, or Object-Oriented Programming.

Object-oriented programming (OOP) is a computer programming model that organizes software design around data, or objects, rather than functions and logic. An object can be defined as a data field that has unique attributes and behavior.

I really enjoy using OOP because…

Describe one thing you’re learning in class today.

I learned something new in JavaScript today (more new stuff of course) being .find(), and .findIndex().

.find() finds the first element in an array that passes a test. So if you had an array like

const findYear = [1994, 1995, 1998]

you can use .find() to locate the first number…

Today we went over Objects in JavaScript,

an object being a standalone entity, like an object in real life that has its own properties and types. Compare it to your favorite pair of pants, the pants being the object while the properties are things like color, design, or material.

Today I learned a little about for/in and for/of loops, yes more JavaScript.

A for/in loop — loops through the properties of an object

while

A for/of loop — loops through the values of an iterable object

The main purpose of these is to shrink your code, there’s also while…

I joke I joke, I kid I kid.

It definitely feels that way sometimes, but I don’t let it get me down, let’s jump into the second course of the program!

I would definitely say that one of the favorite things I learned today was Unicode characters.

“Unicode is a…

Barely.

The class has been kicking my butt and my brain feels like it's melting out of my ears, but I’m enjoying it…if that makes any sense. Figuring out how to make things function is an exciting and interesting process, needlessly to say I’m never bored anymore.

  1. How do you…

How is JavaScript different from CSS? In what ways? How are they similar?

So the main way JavaScript differs from CSS is that I hate it.

Well…hate is a strong word. I think a better way of explaining my relationship with JavaScript is by comparing it to owning a cat. You love the cat and want to keep in your home but you…
