eating my lunch

I’m in between teaching classes just now, eating my lunch and fucking around. I haven’t written a post for this blog for quite a while, so let me write a bit and see how it turns out.

organizing my coding notes

I’ve been working for the past few days to reorganize all my notes on various coding tutorials, creating README files and making sure all the repositories are up and running. Let me list and link all the repos here so I have a central listing of all the cod...

coding notes

I thought I might as well blog this. These are notes for a Udemy course titled JavaScript Interview Prep. The answers below are coded out on the Repl.it and Codepen websites. I have added hyperlinks to each of the code examples.

need to work out

I have been trying to get back into the habit of exercising regularly, but my back went out this past week. Finally, today I feel like I can do it. I went to the gym a few days ago, but I couldn’t complete even the most basic workout. Today I should do some...

new day coding

Just like yesterday, I’m going to write this post as quickly as I can. Let me just keep going until I have my required 500 words, and then I’m done.

writing quickly

Let me try to write 500 words as quickly as I can. I really need to get back to writing this blog more regularly. I think I have written only one other post this month. Not good enough. My purpose in writing this blog is to get daily practice in writing, an...

I need to write more

I just learned how to create to-do lists in markdown. Here is a basic example.

job applications

I thought I would take some time just now to bang out my daily 500 words (at least I wish I did it daily).

still coding

I don’t really have anything to say, but that is not the point of freewriting. I should be able to write no matter how I feel. Let me just bang out 500 words and move on.

JavaScript algorithms

I have been re-working my way through the FreeCodeCamp JavaScript algorithms, testing things out in Repl.it as I go. This is a much more satisfying time around since I am doing a lot more of the coding by myself. That being said, I have been looking at the ...

working on some new tutorials

I finally signed up for the Pluralsight website so I can take some more coding tutorials. So far I have taken a few tutorials for JavaScript - some excellent and some not. I’ve also started a tutorial on HTML5, trying to learn a lot more of the functionalit...

learning React

I have been working since yesterday on the first of the two React tutorials on Codecademy. So far it makes sense to me, although I don’t yet know how to compile React code to create readable JavaScript. Here is an instance of uncompiled React code.

some more coding stuff

Here’s another silly little JavaScript project I have copied to repl.it. It’s a Magic Eightball game I did earlier on in the Codecademy JavaScript tutorial.

embedding a GitHub gist

I’m testing embedding a GitHub gist on my blog. Let’s see how this works.

some coding projects

I’ve been working on some coding projects with the Codecademy JavaScript tutorial. I thought I might post a few of them just to show off a bit.

coding update

I finally figured out the code I pasted into my previous post “new coding platform.” When I posted it earlier it still wasn’t working. I’ve got it going now, and here it is.

back to musical practice

I have been writing a lot about coding lately and I feel like I need to get back to writing about musical practice. Of course, I’ve been coding a lot and not practicing music. I need to re-start my musical practice before I take too long of a hiatus.

new coding platform

I’m trying out a new coding platform: repl.it. This seems like it will be a simpler way to test out JavaScript and other languages as I write with them. I have embedded a short example below to see if it will work. Let me just post this as is and then write...
