Road to Code #19

Another update on learning to code.

I’m done with the Javascript sections! Or at least, the sections 100% dedicated to Javascript. Now I’m working with the DOM – Document Object Model. Still trying to understand it, but basic idea is that the DOM turns every piece of code in a document into an object that you can change or manipulate.

I’m making steady progress. Progress slows down or speeds up from week to week, but the important thing is to keep moving forward.

The work continues.

Another update on learning to code.

Still learning about arrays and callback methods. Learning about shortening functions with arrow functions, and how to filter with Javascript.

I really don’t want to oversell what I said last week, about starting to see how some of this comes together. I’m definitely still a beginner, and will be for a while. But I am starting to see how I would apply some of the things I’m learning to real life data, finding different pieces of data and using code to make them interact with each other. It’s not huge, but it’s something.

The work continues.

Road to Code #17

Another update on learning to code.

I’ve finished with the sections on functions (I’m sure there will be more later on). Moving on to “Callbacks & Array Methods”.

I’m starting to see how different pieces of this come together. I’m going to be learning about code for a while, but some of this is starting to make sense. I’m starting to see the logic behind what this piece of code does, and how you would combine it with another piece of code to get something even more complex.

It’s not intuitive or natural just yet. But it’s something.

The work continues.
