Day 36 JavaScript Regular Expressions.

Yesterday I finished up with the ES6 and most of regular expression portion in freecodecamp. I was surprised at how long the course regarding to just one function. Just goes to show how complex regular expressions are. There were a lot of different scenarios of using it. Regular expressions allow you to check strings of […]

Day 35 JavaScript ES6

Alright, so today decided to get back in the freecodecamp courses. I ended up finishing the ES6 portion of JavaScript. ES6 is the latest version of JavaScript. They come with new features, const and let are both more powerful functions than var. Const once used, the variable can’t be reassigned. In other words, it’s an immutable variable except […]

Day 34 JavaScript Symbols, “This”, & Primitive Conversion

Today we learned more about objects which went into symbols, this, and primitive conversion. Objects are really complex with all of the things they can do. Objects by default can only either a string or a symbol type. Symbol has some advantages over string, it represents a unique identifier. It is created using symbol(). You […]

Day 33 JavaScript Objects

Objects and garbage collection was today’s topic. Also some more experimenting happened today. The new experiment was making flash cards to memorize definitions and syntaxes. I really want to hammer in fundamentals of JavaScript, because it plays a huge role into front end development. Once I know JavaScript and it’s libraries I will be confident […]

Day 32 JavaScript Behavior Driven Development (BDD)

Code quality and testing were the topics today. Code quality was related to code style, comments, and testing with mocha. Code style was a more of a common sense topic along with comments. Code style is sticking with me since I am seeing examples of how to write clean code throughout javascript.info, freecodecamp, and w3schools. […]

Day 31 JavaScript Debugging v2

Today I went over debugging again which was in better detail this time around. Compared to w3schools this one was a lot more in depth with graphics. The debugging process doesn’t look too difficult however it isn’t just memorizing a syntax. Here are the basic things to look for, which can be found in Google […]

Day 30 JavaScript Switch Function Syntax

Day 30 a full month into learning how to code! I am grateful to have made it this far. However, I am still far away from where I need to be and question my speed of execution. I know at Lambda coding school I would be doing a lot more work on a daily basis. […]

Day 29 JavaScript Loop Syntax

Another day of reading through JavaScript basics again. As mentioned before in my previous blog, this blog and vlog documentation is for me to remember things better by talking and writing about it. So today main focus was loops which was a big part in the freecodecamp JavaScript basics. Learning and memorizing the syntax and […]

Day 28 JavaScript Read Through

After finishing JavaScript Basics in freecodecamp, it left me with an uneasy feeling of moving on to the next portion. As I said I used the hint button a lot. With that said, I decided to go back to the Basics…again! So the first time around before doing freecodecamp courses decided to take notes from […]

Day 27 JavaScript Basics Completed!

Finally completed the JavaScript Basics! Still far away from mastering it with the knowledge being second nature though. Finished it not feeling satisfied, that’s for sure. Used the hint button to many times. Didn’t memorize the syntaxes,operators, and functions. I plan on making it more natural by following YouTube videos that build different projects using […]
