Hi all I am a bit confused as to why I am not passing 2 requirements in this task : https://learn.freecodecamp.org/front-end-libraries/react-and-redux/extract-state-logic-to-redux/
I need help. here is my current code :
const ADD = "ADD";


function addMessage(message){
    return {type:"ADD",
     message: message}
}


const messageReducer = (state = [], action) =>{
   // return [...defaultState.user, action.message]
   let nuState = [...state]
   switch(action.type){
       case "ADD":
    //    return [...nuState, action.message]
        return nuState.concat(action.message)
       default:
       return state;
   }
}


const store = Redux.createStore( messageReducer);

store.dispatch(addMessage());
Help is required urgently.

can someone help me with very simple jquery issue
I have this very simple code
<script>
    console.log("ju")
jQuery( "jambo" ).click(function() {
console.log("jambo");
mixpanel.track("footer myaccount")
});
</script>
<button class="jambo">
    Yes
</button>

Dec 21 2018 15:16
@tundeiness remove the last line, the question doesn't ask you to do that.
Also: if you create a const for the action type, use that instead of the string 'ADD', so that the actual string is only in one place.

when i click button
I dont see anything in console
Pieter Stokkink
@forkerino
Dec 21 2018 15:17
@ankur1163 did you import jQuery? also: "jambo" needs a .: ".jambo"

Anyone have any thoughts on what a full stack javascript dev salary looks like these days in a location like Austin, Texas? Don't need specifics, just a ballpark. Obviously it can vary.
Ankur sharma
@ankur1163

@vinarius starting salary?
Mark
@vinarius
Dec 21 2018 15:31
yeah
Pieter Stokkink
@forkerino
Dec 21 2018 15:31

@ankur1163 when I type the following in the console:

jQuery('.jambo').click(() => console.log('hahaha'))

and I click the button, I get hahaha in the console

Ankur sharma
@ankur1163
Dec 21 2018 15:32
@vinarius around $100k
it also depend upon how good you are, I have seen some starting with $70k
@forkerino yeah, I wonder why this isnt working on wordpress file
thats strange
Pieter Stokkink
@forkerino
Dec 21 2018 15:34
I guess at some point, it would be wise for me to work remote for a US company. Here in Europe starting salaries are not even half that (but I guess cost of living here is a bit lower too)...
@ankur1163 is the file loaded? I don't see it in the sources in the dev tools
Ankur sharma
@ankur1163
Dec 21 2018 15:36
@forkerino I will also look for remote work
Pieter Stokkink
@forkerino
Dec 21 2018 15:36
oh wait, it is in the html
Mark
@vinarius
Dec 21 2018 15:36
I have a phone interview in an hour with a recruiter just out of curiosity of what technologies they want, not sure I want to give up my remote position though.
Ankur sharma
@ankur1163
Dec 21 2018 15:36
but its bit hard to get started
@vinarius you are working from home?
Mark

@vinarius can I ask whats the best way to find remote position?
yeah true @forkerino
Pieter Stokkink
@forkerino
Dec 21 2018 15:42
I'm working 50-75% 'remote' depending on the week. But the company I work for is in the same country.
Ankur sharma
@ankur1163
Dec 21 2018 15:43
thats also awesome
@forkerino how did you find remote work?
Mark
@vinarius
Dec 21 2018 15:44
I don't think there is a 'best' way. Really it's having an expansive network. The more people you know, the 'luckier' you are. You'll have a better shot finding a gig through a colleague or friend rather than a website, unless you have an overly glorious resume. If you have your foot in the door with a company and have some success with them, then you have negotiating power once you get an inquiry.
Ankur sharma
@ankur1163
Dec 21 2018 15:44

Ahh
Have you implemented a functionality like undo/redo?
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:21
Into an app? No
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 18:24
I'm trying to do that in a canvas, thinking a stack (js array) with linked list (js objects) should do it? I know its vague, I'll try this but wondering if someone has already done something similar could give pointers
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:27
Stack.. thats not going to be FIFO... Last In First out?
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 18:28
Stack is FIFO/LILO so thats what I'd need right?
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:29
@ezioda004 Stack is LIFO, Queue is FIFO
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Dec 21 2018 18:29
I always liked the idea of a undo/redo. But in this case you'd want a limit of how far you'd go back right? So a stack would be to limiting
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:29
oh I got it right! Cool!
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:30
A stack would be appropriate although be aware that Redo doesn't adhere to normal stack behavior as if you pop something from the stack its not available anymore
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 18:30
@alpox Oops, yeah
@alpox I'm think to have a linked list inside stack which would track the current index if someone does undo and then overwrite the next elements if someone starts to add new stuff
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:31
@ezioda004 Sounds to me more like a plain integer which points to the current position
And the stack must not be a real stack per definition but can be an array or doubly linked list
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 18:32
@alpox Yeah, but the list is because I'm also tracking if someone would modify the element (paperjs) in canvas
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Dec 21 2018 18:33
Im just realizing my knowledge of data structures is really weak XD I was unsure about the LIFO/FIFO question haha. And I totally forgot where the linked-list stands in all of this
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:33
@bradtaniguchi There is always room for looking at it again :D its an interesting topic
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:34
I only know about stack/queue/linked list due to my minimal C# learning
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 18:34
@bradtaniguchi Same, I did learn few months back, only few traces remain
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:34
@ezioda004 but would you need a linked list to track that? If you go back (undo) and make a change then you can just cut off the tail
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:34
Btw... anybody know any good general CS book(s)? I'm wanting to get a better understanding of core concepts
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:34
@JLuboff I programmed CS for some years but never used a book :D
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:35
@alpox :( I just feel that I can make stuff.. and know how to use different methods, etc.. but.. sometimes don't know WHY if that makes sense
I guess it comes down to wanting to be a better programmer :)
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:36
@JLuboff Maybe if you could give an example :D
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Dec 21 2018 18:36
THe only reference I have to offer is the https://teachyourselfcs.com/#algorithms site, loads of good resources. I only read some of it tho, to lazy to jump back in. I dont even remember the book I used for data-structures, I think it was because nothing was ever used from it so it was useless to me :/
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 18:36
@alpox Hmm, now that I think of it, I probably dont need that, thanks for the advice!
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:37
@ezioda004 No problem :)
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 18:38
@JLuboff I used to reference this repo when I was learning it, its great if you're learning DSA with JS
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:39
@bradtaniguchi @JLuboff At university we used this book https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Introduction_to_Algorithms
It covers about everything you have to know about algorithms and MUCH more
I read only parts of it
It also discusses Big O, Omega O, the most basic and also advanced algorithms regarding sort / tree traversal, It discusses bin packing problems and very advanced algorithms and also goes into P/NP, state machines and turing machine discussions
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Dec 21 2018 18:41
I loved turning machines, got me into CS
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:42
@JLuboff If you wanna be a real algo champ/nerd get into that book - but its hard :D
@bradtaniguchi Me not thaat much but it was interesting
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:46
Thanks guys, going to take a look into each resource :)
@alpox Thats okay! I think thats probably the type of resource I'm looking for

Don’t be the person who “never quite understood” something like recursion.

Yup..thats me...never using recursion :joy:

alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:48
@JLuboff Ah the book SICP - its great too
I looked over it and it sure can give you lots for being a better developer (And a well respected book also)
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:49
If you had to choose between the two, which would you go with?
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:49
@JLuboff Its one if not the most famous one for valuable basics
@JLuboff I would have gone with SICP first and then Introduction to Algorithms - There is quite a difference between those two
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:50
Awesome, I'll look closer into SICP first then :)
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:50
SICP doesn't teach you algorithms and data structures (well it does a few of them but not the same way)
Introduction to Algorithms is plain theory. Code is there only as fake-code
SICP teaches you the very basics in how programming is built up and gives you examples and especially lots of exercises to practice
It uses Scheme as language
Here is the whole book online
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 18:52
@alpox Which other core CS topic do you think is a good time investment?
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:52
@ezioda004 There are many :D depends on where you stand and what you want
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:52
@alpox Thanks, it sounds like thats what I want. A more core understanding of concepts as opposed to "Well.. I made it work!"
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:53
If you go into OOP programming a lot you sure want to know about Class Hierarchies and the common Design Patterns (Im more in the corner of people who say that those design patterns are only needed because programming in OOP has its lacks and the design patterns are "polyfills" - like patches onto the language)
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 18:54
@alpox Like DSA is a topic not used everyday but definitely changes your thought process to approach a problem, something like that
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:54
@JLuboff :) nice! I hope you can get something out of it. I didn't look all too much into that book but it looks quite awesome and I would recommend to do the exercises.
@JLuboff In addition, you learn a LISP language which is also very valuable (Its quite different to some others)
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:55
I'm sure I will. Question is...do I buy the physical book or use the free online version.. Hmmm
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 18:55
Yeah I know basics of OOP maybe its time to explore that!
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:55
@ezioda004 Hmm about that it often helps looking into some weird, new or special programming languages. Doing some functional programming sure changes your mindset and approach to a problem in good ways for the work in every language.
@JLuboff I always go with free :D xD
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Dec 21 2018 18:56
Man, idk if this guy is too lazy to write test-cases, doesn't know how, or thinks hes to smart for it, but I legit told him 2 days ago to write them for a peice of code since its important, has bugs, and probably will need changes in the future. Instead he adds more broken code to it :/
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:56
I love free too, don't get me wrong haha But there is something about a physical book that works better for me
@bradtaniguchi How many programmers do you work with?
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:56
Oh and by the way I should drop here one very ICONIC talk by the creator of Clojure (Great language btw)
EVERYONE thats a good watch ;)
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 18:57
We do have C++ this coming semester, it'll certainly help with that too
@alpox Agreed with FP, I learned a lot from it
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 18:57
@bradtaniguchi Fun times :D
@ezioda004 Och C++. I did an advanced course on it and let it grow mold in the edge of my conciousness :D
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Dec 21 2018 18:58
@JLuboff Currently 3-4 other ones
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 18:59
Ah
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 19:02
@alpox Heh, I'm excited to learn it
What topics would you suggest for backend? I guess learning about OS (threading/processes) would be beneficial, what else?
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Dec 21 2018 19:04
Oh god C++, I never touched it but did touch C... ah seg faults :D
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 19:04
@ezioda004 That is indeed beneficial, yes. Ofc. for backend you need knowledge of databases if you don't already, HTTP and depending on the platform/framework some few concepts (Dependency Injection? MVC?), then also Security to some extent (I could use more knowledge there) And sometime a few external services like ElasticSearch etc.
@JLuboff Ah hey I see the next book in the list you showed there is The elements of computer systems :D I walked through almost the whole book ^^
Was a fun experience
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 19:07
Its interesting how some of these books are fairly old (10-20+ years) but they're still applicable
I guess becuase they're mainly concepts versus teaching you actually programming?
alpox
@alpox
Dec 21 2018 19:12
@JLuboff They teach concepts applicable to all programming, yes. If you know the basics well enough, the language you use and the framework you work in are just like a new hammer or a new screw
But thanks to your concept knowledge you still know how to use them or get used to them very fast as you know the general concept even if they are a bit differently shaped
@JLuboff Ah btw. SICP with Scheme was used until recently (Or still?) At the MIT to teach new CS students :D
@JLuboff And that free version is hosted on the MIT servers :D
Aditya
@ezioda004
Dec 21 2018 19:18
@alpox I know decent Node/Mongo, but I guess I should learn RDBMS of some sort. Ooh security sounds good, thanks for all the advice!

@ezioda004 You're welcome :)
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 19:47
@ezioda004 If you ever have RDBMS questions, I can hopefully help. I'm specific to Microsoft SQL Server but concepts are similar between the top systems
@alpox Looking at the Amazon description, seems it still uses Scheme

Anyone ever heard of chai/mocha/sinon issues that only exist on windows? Our testing stubs don't seem to get applied on windows machines, super funky
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 22:02
Sure its not just a config issue?
That seems odd that it wouldn't work but I guess it depends on if its looking for a certain file path..??
Brad
@bradtaniguchi
Dec 21 2018 22:07
Yea no config AFAIK, same files are ran, same code, same settings, same environment variables (even tho those wouldn't affect anything) straight up same error on two seperate windows machines
the windows dev has isolated it down to more or less the "restore" of our stubs seems to happen AFTER we set the stubs for each test. No idea how that works
but thats what looks to be happening

Wow... they don't support Windows anymore :( Lets see if there's an old version of Scheme that does I guess
I am prepared to be enlightened! Hopefully it makes me a better programmer

So I figured out why some tests were running, they werent included in the test runner, and when I include them I get a bunch failed tests. My types are also off, and changing them to be "right" results in 100+ linting issues with the test-code, so I gotta updated all of it :'(

Damn, seems like they have started paid courses too, theres one by w3c lol

Nope never heard of edx, I was never one to do many "courses" really. Never could stay focused through videos
Rather just jump in and get started

I like watching lecture sorta videos, though I must admit I watch an hour video in a span of a week

I'd rather read the article with code snippets step by step over lunch, but that's just me :D
If I watch something I tune out really fast haha

@JLuboff I can recommend you to install WSL (windows subsystem for linux) to get a whole integrated ubuntu shell. You can run scheme with it directly on windows
Jason Luboff
@JLuboff
Dec 21 2018 23:03
@alpox Thanks for the recommendation, I'll need to go that route as the windows installer didn't work (I'm guessing compatability issues)
:joy: Apparently I already have WSL turned on. Just need to select a distro it looks like
