someone explain this code in human terms to me please,because what i understand is if i is greater than zero decrease i
for(var i = 10; i > 0; i-- ){
  console.log("I is "+ i );
}

@Kingwindie That's a for loop. First you're setting the variable i to 10. Then you're giving the condition: i is greater than 0. And lastly you're counting down -1 on each loop. So on every loop it will check if i is greater than 0. If that returns true, the loop will run. When it returns false (because i is no longer greater than 0), it will stop the loop.

@bjorno43 where is i > 10?

class Person

def initialize(name, age, profession)
@name = name
@age = age
@profession = profession
end
end

person1 = Person.new("frank", 56, "firefighter")

puts person1

@Kingwindie Sorry, that was a typo on my end. I ment i > 0 of course :smile:
@Ruaridhi Is that Python or something?

oh soory, its ruby

May 30 2018 11:40
@bjorno43 i understand loops in general,but i ran into some exercise that wanted me to count down from 10 to 1,and i kept running into infinite loops,so i decided maybe i don't know loops at all
Bjorn van de Peut
@bjorno43
May 30 2018 11:42
@Kingwindie I don't know what you've done before, but there's nothing wrong with that loop. It shouldn't be infinite
Anyway, I'll be back later. Gotta go pick up a package :wave:

@Kingwindie
May 30 2018 11:49
@bjorno43 this is what i wanted to print out
for(var i = 10; i > 0; i-- ){
  if(i === 1){
    console.log("Blast off");
  }
  else{
    console.log("Take off in "+ i );
  }

}
@bjorno43 this is what i wrote earlier that caused infinite loops
Kingsley
@Kingwindie
May 30 2018 11:54
// var i = 10;
// while(i > 0){
//    if(i === 10){
//     console.log("Blast off!");
//     continue;
//   }
//  console.log("Take off in " + i);
//   i--;
// }
var i = 10;
while(i > 0){
   if(i === 10){
    console.log("Blast off!");
    continue;
  }
 console.log("Take off in " + i);
  i--;
}
ignore the continue

May Kittens Devour Your Soul
@diomed
May 30 2018 19:58
I think even I collected some amount of basic projects to get some smol certificate
@ezioda004 are u familiar with velocity.js
Aditya
@ezioda004
May 30 2018 20:02
@PierreProgramer You can do both, actually bunch of projects are common among the new and old certs. I like old certs because they say "frontend/backend".
@diomed What is that lol.
PierreProgramer
@PierreProgramer
May 30 2018 20:02
but the new one includes the old one and more
I’m going to do it so I can get better

Hello, I need a little help with the new site /curriculum , I completed Pomodoro clock project, and i was about to code tic tac game , now i can't find that project in the map/learn , but it's there in the settings page under "Legacy Certification Settings", I'm totally lost here is the "Legacy Certification" represent the old "Front End Certificate" ?
