I was working on a freeCodeCamp challenge last night, and some things happened that I thought were worth writing about. For this challenge (Everything Be True) I was asked to write a function that would take two arguments, an array of objects, and a property. If the property was ‘truthy’ [ I still struggled with … More Bi-Weekly Life Update (19!)
I’ve been working on the freeCodeCamp Intermediate Algorithm Scripting challenges for the past couple of weeks. I wanted to do that instead of jumping straight back in to the Twitch tv project, just to ease myself back into it. I often set myself little goals, not just for coding, but in other parts of my … More Bi-Weekly Learning Update (18!)
I recently started the backend part of the Udemy course I’m doing, which puts me in a kind of weird position [I think, anyway!] ; I’m still doing frontend on freeCodeCamp, but backend on the Web Developer Bootcamp. Because there were so many gaps in the freeCodeCamp curriculum, I was hoping that they would kind … More Bi-Weekly Learning Update (17!)

I decided to work on a couple small side projects this week, spurred on by the colour game from … More Bi-Weekly Learning Update (16!)

I’ve talked before about how valuable I’ve been finding these code-alongs, and this project was great because it was so comprehensive. It’s a pretty simple idea: the player is shown an RGB value, and has to click … More Colour Game Code-Along
As I mentioned in a previous post, I completed the Wikipedia Viewer project for freeCodeCamp. I wasn’t entirely happy with it though. I had used the opensearch action, and while I liked the results it came up with- I thought they were quirky and interesting, it wasn’t really what was intended from the project. I … More Wikipedia Viewer 2.0
Just as I claimed I was coming back to working on web development I disappeared again- what gives?! Well, for the second time now I’ve moved halfway across the world, and as great as it is to be able to do that, it’s also a whole lot of work! We’re finally settled in now, and … More Life Update!
