What I’ve learned and the life around it?
How do you map the many different DOM methods and properties in your mind? How would you describe them to a non-developer?
What do you find surprising about coding so far? Do you find anything easy? What? Why?
What I find most surprising so far is how simple it is can be once you understand the basics. Of course, functions and building events can become very complex but from a very simplistic standpoint, applications are just a set of 100s or 1000s of instructions by the developer that just act off of one another.
What’s difficult about coding for you? Why?
What’s cool about event listeners? Why are they useful and what more would you like to learn about them?
The coolest part of course is they turn a websites that’s really nothing more than a giant art project, into an actual web app experiment that the user an interact with. I’d like to continue to learn how to simplify my code and get in a good rhythm of making really cool designs that work OnScroll and also on a timer. The (setTimeout) method is currently one of my favorites to work with.
Why are you motivated? Why are you in this class?
I’m motivated simply because I can make cool things and change someones life all by application. If someone has a problem, or difficulty and I can make an application that makes their life easier, or brings them better business etc, it would make me really proud to know I have an impact in someones life. This is also the reason why I’m in the class, I want to make a lasting difference in people’s lives with more than just kind words. I want to build things, and what a better way to do it than be taught first hand by developers and sit along side future developers and learn techniques and skills that I may not have come across simply learning on my own. I thing that this class will have a huge impact on my development as a developer.
