@kevinkiklee Yes, I have github up and running
Kevin K. Lee
make sure you build up your github. the recruiters will take a look at your github.
Onome Sotu
I only build locally
so ipush everything to my github
Kevin K. Lee
start documenting everything on github. make sure you write good commit messages. the two most important things when you apply to a job are your linkedin profile and your github profile.
resume is almost secondary. they will immediately go to your linkedin and github first.

@kevinkiklee that is great advice! Thank you big time!

@kevinkiklee can the same be achieved with the curricculum that you gave earlier
Onome Sotu
Thanks for this man...
Kevin K. Lee
absolutely. when you go through that, you should be able to make spotify, slack or netflix or whtaever you want.
it does go through the fundamentals well.

@kevinkiklee cool, thanks kevin

@JVeeKay It's a good mix of work so that's good :)

another advice: clone a well known non-trivial full-stack application. when you are on that phone screen, you have 15 seconds to explain your project. you DO NOT want to waste those 15 seconds saying "I created this dating app that matches people based on which side of the bed they like to sleep on. I swear, it's based on science!" No, you want to use those 15 seconds saying "I cloned Slack with a React frontend, a Rails backend, and utilized websocket protocol through Pusher API."
you want to use those 15 seconds talking about your skills, not explaining what your app does.
and we are coders. not designers. unfortunately, aesthetics matter. a recruiter, who is usually a non-technical person, will be drawn more towards the aesthetics of the wbsite, rather than how cleverly you solved some N+1 query in the backend, buried somewhere deep in the code. so, by cloning a fullstack application, you automatically skip the design step, where you don't have to worry about making it look nice. it's going to already look nice, because incredibly talented designers have already worked on that.
of course, do talk about how you solved the N+1 query during the interview with an engineer, but what is important is getting yourself to that interview.
Onome Sotu
oh boy.. I just saw your portfolio page..
I was blown to shreds
Kevin K. Lee
oh no no no, that's a template. i bought it for like $10. i should take that down actually. that website is not important.
Onome Sotu
Looool... alright
what template was it?
$('body').scrollTop(); doesn't work in chrome on windows 10. Can anyone replicate this problem?
Onome Sotu
Excellent advice by the way @kevinkiklee . It is nice to meet guys like you from time to time... it helps to keep us going
Kevin K. Lee
np. i like to stop by here at fcc once in awhile. this is where i started, so i'm nostalgic. i was also in the fcc gitter asking questions all the time.
@kevinkiklee Wow thanks for the pep talk man. Also Rick and Morty FTW. :+1:

hello there!
can someone take a look on my code ?:) I need some help, I am stuck at one of the advanced algorithms

function checkCashRegister(price, cash, cid) {
var change = cash - price;
var drawer = [];
var values = [
["ONE HUNDRED", 100.00],
["TWENTY", 20.00],
["TEN", 10.00],
["FIVE", 5.00],
["ONE", 1.00],
["QUARTER", 0.25],
["DIME", 0.10],
["NICKEL", 0.05],
["PENNY", 0.01]
var result = [];
for (i=cid.length-1; i>=0; i--){
for (i=0; i<drawer.length; i++){ var temp = [drawer[i][0], 0]; while (change >= values[i][1] && drawer[i][1] - values[i][1] >= 0){
drawer[i][1] -= values[i][1];
change -= values[i][1];
temp[1] += values[i][1];
if (temp[1] > 0){
return result;

checkCashRegister(3.26, 100.00, [["PENNY", 1.01], ["NICKEL", 2.05], ["DIME", 3.10], ["QUARTER", 4.25], ["ONE", 90.00], ["FIVE", 55.00], ["TEN", 20.00], ["TWENTY", 60.00], ["ONE HUNDRED", 100.00]]);

got to learn how to paste this
anyway, if you run the code in repl.it or other site, you will notice that the result, the change, is sometimes a bit off... not always, sometimes, at certain values.... don't seem to find any logic in them
especially if it has pennys in the change
Kevin K. Lee
probably because of floating point numbers
computers are very very very bad at decimals.
try converting penny to 1. dollar to 100. and twenty to 2000 and such.
