Yes what is your question?
lol
Nice clean chat
Charles Watson
@sircharleswatson
Dec 30 2014 19:26
My question is, how long until this chat is dirty?
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:26
It won't be for chatter.
Just help
it will get dirty but it wont be flying by at 100 miles an hour.

@Rybar
Dec 30 2014 19:28
as we dirty it with chat about not using it for chat
Mark Howard

Dec 30 2014 19:28
Get the solution and no more chatter
LOL

help!
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 19:36
suggestion: challenges 26, 27, 28 coudl be named for the fun activity built at the end, similar to challegnes 24 & 25. Makes it more fun to look forward to
Also 29 is missing the link to the "also do this " 2nd part (ie step 3)
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 19:37
yes @MicroProjectSix
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 19:38
is that considered help?
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:40
Suggestion would be for the trello :)
or team@freecodecamp.com easier for us to remember.
David
@DavidII
Dec 30 2014 19:43
I thought I would yell. I've recently switch to fedora 21, I am having a hard time install NODE.js and ATOM. Is there any suggestion.
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:43
Are you getting an error?
Nick
@nahoskins
Dec 30 2014 19:44
yeah kinda hard to help if you don't give any details
That is how to build Atom on Fedora 20
Ryan Malm
@Rybar
Dec 30 2014 19:46
@AdventureBear That'd be a suggestion for Quincy, this chat was made for people to get help with their code.
missed mark ^ yes, what he said LOL
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:46
lol
David
@DavidII
Dec 30 2014 19:46
It is not flagging any issues, nor gives me indicator that is was installed. Mainly blank screen. I've tried the link you have provide me, but I'lll give it another try tonight.
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:47
can you do:
node -v
Nick
@nahoskins
Dec 30 2014 19:47
@MicroProjectSix You can go on IRC and find targeted support there
David
@DavidII
Dec 30 2014 19:47
aw,ha
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:48
@nahoskins We can help him here as we have professional node developers.
David
@DavidII
Dec 30 2014 19:49
if that throws me the version, that can only mean that it is installed. Now to I to figure out how it works.
or make it work
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:49
Okay so it gave you the version?
David
@DavidII
Dec 30 2014 19:49
yes it did.
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:49
Do you know JavaScript?
Nick
@nahoskins
Dec 30 2014 19:49
which was?
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:51
if you type:
node
David
@DavidII
Dec 30 2014 19:51
I am currently in the process of learning. I wanted to install it, to have something to play with and as a practice tool.
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:51
It will open a JS console.
Nick
@nahoskins
Dec 30 2014 19:51
@MicroProjectSix npm install -g learnyounode
David
@DavidII
Dec 30 2014 19:51
give me this ...>
Nick
@nahoskins
Dec 30 2014 19:52
yes that is normal
that is a repl
you can write javascript in there
David
@DavidII
Dec 30 2014 19:52
sweet'
Nick
@nahoskins
Dec 30 2014 19:52
learnyounode is a workshop
it will guide you through some lessons

I think you need to learn JavaScript before even diving into NodeJS.
David
@DavidII
Dec 30 2014 19:53
this is awesome thank you
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:54
Anymore questions?
Nick
@nahoskins
Dec 30 2014 19:54
You should defintely go and pick up some javascript books
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:54
No
Follow the challenges on the site first.
It will guide you in a better direction.
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 19:55
oh, OK, thanks @iheartkode
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:56
@nahoskins I appreciate your input but we have some things we use in house and would like to make it as easy as possible. Thank you.
David
@DavidII
Dec 30 2014 19:56
@iheartkode true, node.js can wait. thank you again
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:57
Feel free to help with code questions as for resources and recommendations we like to keep that streamlined.
David
@DavidII
Dec 30 2014 19:57
roger that!
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:57
That was Directed at @nahoskins :)
Nick
@nahoskins
Dec 30 2014 19:58
with all due respect these books are an excellent resource and can only serve to compliment whatever courses you have on your site
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:58
If you have any other questions @MicroProjectSix feel free to ask.
Nick
@nahoskins
Dec 30 2014 19:58
I don't agree with dissuading new programmers from learning from those resources
as an educator I take issue with that
fair enough, promote your methods, I understand that
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:59
We are not dissuading them, we are simply making things easier for the person on the end.
Nick
@nahoskins
Dec 30 2014 19:59
anyone who makes this chat room will have seen the site, and its courses
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 19:59
So people are not blurting out resources all at once and confusing campers.
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:00
I agree @iheartkode the forum (or the other chat) could be a place for additional resources.
the subreddit was for that but now it's the forum?
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 20:00
^
This message was deleted
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 20:00
yes, and we welcome you submitting all the resources you find valuable to the forums
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 20:01
I know as a learner getting pushed commands and books and etc can be overwhelming maybe you can understand that as an educator?
Nick
@nahoskins
Dec 30 2014 20:03
Of course, the question is, should you be telling people NOT to use those resources.
Once I can access the site I will have a better appraisal of what these courses offer
its always been my experience that providing students with alternate resources increases the likelihood of uptake
some kids learn better with books, believe it or not
either way, I disagree with telling someone NOT to use the books.
That to me sounds like a bad call.
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 20:08
We provide tons of resources and books, I do it atleast once a day in chat. But when we are helping someone with an issue it gets messy and can confuse them.
But this room is not for general discussion see you on the chat thanks.
Ryan Malm
@Rybar
Dec 30 2014 20:16
I guess Mark's point is, throwing a generic catch-all list of programming books at a beginner asking a very specific question about how to set up Node isn't very helpful. Nobody's saying extra resources in general shouldn't be used or considered.
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:25
I need a help for real...
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 20:25
whats up @AdventureBear
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:26
challenge 28, I'm building an 'adventure game'. I prompt for four questions before my switch
inside each case I'll use the 3 other prompts (experience in years, hours per week for example) to choose the response
it seems redundant to retype if A && B evry time. they are mor eintricate than that. but maybe I'm makning it too complex.
hey I gotta go BRB...getting kciked out of closeing cafe.
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 20:27
ok I’m looking now
Mark Howard
@iheartkode
Dec 30 2014 20:28
Also if you can post your code it will help us :)
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:31
OK, so maybe I"m making it too complicated but here is an example
first promt: what race do you want to do?
cases might be 5k, 10k, half-marathon, full
OK, I'll just paste the code rather than explaining. It's not really a coding quesiotn but a style quesiton
ugh! none of it saved when I left the cafe.
i'll make up some psueudo code
```prompt race = "pick a race distance"
ugh
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 20:34
I can tell you, mine was quite long and detailed, for a game like this you’ll get a pretty long one going :)
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:35
prompt race = pick a race distance prompt experiece = how many "races" have you done before? prompt hours = how many hours per week can you train? prompt history = how many years have you been training?
well that didn't work.
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 20:35
@AdventureBear Is that the challenge using the switch statement?
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:36
sigh. yes... what i am getting at is that just adding 1 additional prompt as a variable exponentiall expands the code. So i'm looking for ways to keep it simpler by I guess using functions in each case.
i'm having a hard time explaining it. I think i'm being too ambitious for the first time. I'll just use true false statements for now then build incrementally.
or take a break, lol
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 20:38
I like the kiss method, also keep in mind that site is rather hinky about what they’ll accept in the responses :) so trying to do more than they request can lead to errors where you’ve not actually made a coding error
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 20:38
Which exact lesson and model is it in Codecademy?
*module
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:39
challenge 28, learn control flow step 4
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 20:40
I mean which step in Codecademy. So I know at what point you're at.
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:41
ah... well lookie theree, it did save! I'll try to paste it again.
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 20:42
@AdventureBear Does this look like what you're going through?
var user = prompt("Anything!").toLowerCase();
switch(user) {
    case 'thing':
        if(true && true) {
            console.log("this is the thing");
            break;
        }else {
            console.log("this is the else case")
            break;
        }
    case 'another thing':
        if(true || false) {
            console.log("this is the other thing");
            break;
        }else {
            console.log("this is the else case")
            break;
        }
    case 'yet another thing':
        console.log("this is next thing");
        break;
    default:
        console.log("I don't get it")
        break;
}
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:42
it's choose your own adventure 2, step 5, logical operators.
yes, exactly. I think I'm not KISSing. here's my code:

```var user = prompt("What race do you want to do?").toLowerCase();

var experienceLevel = prompt("How many years have you been training for traithlons in general? (Enter a whole number from 0 to )").toLowerCase();
var numberRaces = prompt("How many" + user + " races have you done before?").toLowerCase();
var hoursPerWeek = prompt("About how many hours per week can you train?").toLowerCase();

switch(user){
case 'sprint':
console.log("Sprints are fun & fast");
break;
case 'olympic':
console.log("You can train for the Olympic games!");
break;
case 'half':
console.log("halfs are a great intermediate distance");
break;
case 'full':
console.log("That's a big undertaking, are you sure you're up for it? ");
break;
default:
console.log("I don't know that distance, is it closest to a sprint, olympic, half or full? ");

}```

Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 20:44
So you haven't added the conditionals yet?
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:45
var user = prompt("What race do you want to do?").toLowerCase();

var experienceLevel = prompt("How many years have you been training for traithlons in general? (Enter a whole number from 0 to )").toLowerCase();
var numberRaces = prompt("How many" + user + " races have you done before?").toLowerCase();
var hoursPerWeek = prompt("About how many hours per week can you train?").toLowerCase();

switch(user){
    case 'sprint':

    default: 
        console.log("I don't know that distance, is it closest to a sprint, olympic, half or full? ");


}
there we go. No not yet. You can see the 3 qeustions I asked...
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 20:45
ok so here is my suggestions, since this isn’t a situation of “I am getting this error and don’t know what it is” but more of a “I think I’m going overboard” you may likely being going overboard :)
and you should listen to your instincts
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:45
right, I know. But I wanna make it awesome!
3 variables for four cases with numeric rather than boolean responses...I got overwhelmed.
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 20:46
and I go back to my reminder than that site is going to toss you an error when you’ve not made one, if you do more than they require :)
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:46
you're right
OK thanks...this actually WAS very helpfl even though not strictly a coding question
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 20:46
so KISS it DRY :)
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 20:46
And in that particular challenge all they're looking for is one && and one || in the code.
And an if/else statement.
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:47
I know @yaskyj but I get carried away...
:)
i'll move all that over to code pen for another day and KISS today
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 20:47
there you go
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 20:48
@odrisck What was the email you posted in the other chat room to email questions directly to the team? I can't find it.
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 20:48
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 20:49
thanks
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 20:49
certainly
Ryan Malm
@Rybar
Dec 30 2014 20:49
@AdventureBear I'd add that yes KISS for getting the challenge done sake, but by all means take it to codepen and make it better. Don't be satisfied with simply completing the lesson within parameters.
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 20:49
That email was actually pretty obvious.
Kathy O'Driscoll
@odrisck
Dec 30 2014 20:49
oh absolutely
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 20:52
Does anyone have the link to the Heroku tutorial that was in the challenges before they were changed?
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 20:53
OK, here's what I did and I passed...it took no time at all AND it helped clarify my thinking!!
var user = prompt("What race do you want to do?").toLowerCase();

var experienceLevel = prompt("Have you done any races?").toLowerCase();
var hoursPerWeek = prompt("Can you train at least 6 hours per week?").toLowerCase();

switch(user){
    case 'sprint': 
        console.log("Sprints are fun & fast");
            if (!experienceLevel && !hoursPerWeek) {
                console.log("A sprint is the right choice for you") 
            } else {
                console.log("You have enough experience or time to consider going for an Olympic!")
            }
        break;
    case 'olympic': 
        console.log("You can train for the Olympic games!");
                if (experienceLevel || hoursPerWeek) {
                    console.log("I think you have the needed backgroudn and time to train!")
                } else if (experienceLevel && hoursPerWeek) {
                console.log("You can definately do an Olympic distance. Have you ever consdiered a Half?")
                }
        break;
    case 'half': 
        console.log("halfs are a great intermediate distance");
        break;
    case 'full': 
        console.log("That's a big undertaking, are you sure you're up for it? ");
        break;
    default: 
        console.log("I don't know that distance, is it closest to a sprint, olympic, half or full? ");


}
thansk for the help everyone! Love the new help room.
here it is, you'll need the console to see the output.
Ryan Malm
@Rybar
Dec 30 2014 21:01
@adventurebear Modified with the console.log catcher function I use at jsfiddle, now it outputs to html. :)
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 21:06
that's cool...so you sort of overwrote the console log function?
Ryan Malm
@Rybar
Dec 30 2014 21:14
yes
its handy for challenges like all the ones in the cirriculum, especially in sandboxed environments like codepen and jsfiddle where the browser console can get cluttered
I can't take credit for writing it; I found it in a stackoverflow answer
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 21:17
I like it, maybe i'll make a codepen just for it! How do you save & store code bits?
i mean, do you use codepen for stuff like that or is there another way?
I already forked it. :)
Ryan Malm
@Rybar
Dec 30 2014 21:19
I've got a bunch of jsfiddles with utility things like that saved
I should find a better way of keeping them lol
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 21:22
what don't you like about jsfiddle? what do other folks use?
Ryan Malm
@Rybar
Dec 30 2014 21:28
I'm not sure what other people use. jsfiddle doesn't have a good way of naming things, just gives a preview of the beginning of your code
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 21:28
codepen has tags, so I just forked yours and tagged it "console log"
as well as "js". then gave it a good name. (Console Log to HTML function)
am I turning into a developer??
Ryan Malm
@Rybar
Dec 30 2014 21:29
You're on the path. :D
seahik
@seahik
Dec 30 2014 21:31
im really liking codepen now that i figured out how to use document write!
Ryan Malm
@Rybar
Dec 30 2014 21:31
@AdventureBear a quick google search yielded http://www.gistboxapp.com/, I like it already, connects to github, uses gists
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 21:31
seahik try that link Rybar shared...that will et you cut & paste console.log functions there without having to rewrite them.
thanks
seahik
@seahik
Dec 30 2014 21:33
i played with console.loging to html but for now im just using document.write...then don't need any extra JS or html
but its probably really good practice for me to switch to outputing to html sooner than later. so maybe I should start using that extra code.
Ryan Malm
@Rybar
Dec 30 2014 21:34
oh absolutely for practical use you'd want document.write. but it's disabled in jsfiddle, and the challenges in general all output to console
seahik
@seahik
Dec 30 2014 21:36
i actually am working in codepen right now on a coderbyte challenge...have a question about strings arrays
i'm wondering if arr.min() works on a stringarray?
like for example...if arr = ["4","E","1","E","2","E","3","E"];
would arr.min() = "1"
Suzanne Atkinson
@AdventureBear
Dec 30 2014 21:39
@Rybar thansk I logged in too
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 21:40
@seahik You can always sort the array.
seahik
@seahik
Dec 30 2014 21:40
funny i actually did that as my first solution...but i think the answer is supposed to be unsorted
its the 'OffLineMinimum' challenge
where you pull of the minimu of the array depending on interspersed "E"
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 21:44
I did a for loop checking if the value was an 'E'.
seahik
@seahik
Dec 30 2014 21:45
i did that too. where im at now is i have a count of total E. And I have a newstr with just the numbers. im working right now on how to pull off the minimums.
Ryan Malm
@Rybar
Dec 30 2014 21:47
array.min isn't part of vanilla js, you'd have to implement that yourself.
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 21:48
If the value wasn't an 'E', I pushed it to a new array. Else, I sorted the new array in reverse and pushed the last value of the new array to an answer array.
Then returned a join for the answer.
seahik
@seahik
Dec 30 2014 21:49
ok that is how i did it the first time, i havent tried submitting it on coderbyte actually.
but in the instructions...it has an example. of input and output
Input = "4","E","1","E","2","E","3","E" Output = "4,1,2,3"
if you sorted, then isn't your
Output = "1,2,3,4"
instead of
Output = "4,12,3"
not sure if the intent was to keep the order from the original array
@Rybar ah thanks i didn't know that....is it part of a library?

I didn't sort the answer. Each time an 'E' comes up it checks the array of numbers I created, sorts them in reverse and pops off the number that's largest.
Sorry, smallest.
I can show you the code if you want, but I don't want to ruin the challenge for you.

hmmm...not sure how to do that without sorting. i need to stare at it for a bit
ha yeah thanks...its sure is satisfying to figure it out
but its cool to discuss it also

Ultimately, I created two new arrays. One that holds the integers and one for the answer. The for loop pushes the number onto the integer array if it's not 'E'. If it's 'E', it takes the smallest number out of the integer array and adds it to the answer array.

It's tough describing with words. I guess that's what the pair programming is for, right?

@sircharleswatson I could, but I think @seahik wants to figure out the answer on his own. I'm trying to be vague enough that I'm not outright giving him the answer.
Charles Watson
@sircharleswatson
Dec 30 2014 22:04
gotcha

@seahik
Dec 30 2014 22:04
how do you paste it?
Charles Watson
@sircharleswatson
Dec 30 2014 22:04
you could still at least post code that is similar or short snippets as clues :)

All the other markup help is located in the lower right hand corner of the chat box if you need them.

one thing i struggle with when doing these challenges is worrying if im doing it the really clumsy long way...but maybe its ok to do it clumsy first and then refine it later
@yaskyj thanks i see the markup help now
this is a really nice chat board

@seahik So is that the last easy Coderbyte challenge for you?
seahik
@seahik
Dec 30 2014 22:43
no im skipping around in the easy section. I have done several more on a different website - CodeAbbey. I actually like CodeAbbey a little better than coderbyte because there is neat little introduction before each challenge. I've only completed 8 so far on coderbyte. Are you alot further along?
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 22:44
I'm actually completely finished.

@seahik
Dec 30 2014 22:45
oh nice! all 80? well done
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 22:46
Sorry, should have clarified. I'm done with everything for FCC. Easy and Medium Coderbytes and the 60 FCC challenges.

@seahik cool, I'm on codeabbey too

@Maximization i love codeabby with it's little animated drawings
the creator seems to really enjoy math and programming
@yaskyj ah still nice job! i have to look again at the progression....the FCC challenges are different than the coderbyte?
Justin Rogers
@yaskyj
Dec 30 2014 22:52
@seahik One of the FCC challenges has all easy Coderbytes completed, but the last button for completion of FCC confirms that you've completed all of the Medium challenges too.
seahik
@seahik
Dec 30 2014 22:53
ah ok so the 60 FCC challenges are the easy and med on coderbyte?
Charles Watson
@sircharleswatson
Dec 30 2014 22:55
@seahik the coderbyte challenges are 1 challenge from FCC
Maxim Orlov
@Maximization
Dec 30 2014 22:55
they are separate, FCC has 60 challenges and coderbyte has 60
coderbyte challenges are to improve your JavaScript skills and to get a feeling for coding patterns and algorithms

ah ok ok im sure it will be perfectly clear when i get to them
(well not the challenges themselves...)
