honestly I feel like i've already gotten more out of this school than I did out of either of those. in a couple weeks I've learned how to put together a website and to some extent make it mobile. I'm looking at some of the people who have already gotten front end jobs and realizing that my code already stands up to that, I'm already trying to push further so I have no doubt that in like half a year I can start applying for jobs

@lantech19446 how's the project going, do you need any help?

@davidjcastner I figured out what the error was but the javascript for the iframe API that youtube is now using doesn't seem to do much of anything for me. @rmaylie9560 has some ideas having looked at it and said he may be available later tonight but if my understanding is correct using the api literally just creates and injects the same code that you get when you share it as an embedded video directly from youtube so I'm not sure how much I really care if it works or not with the api other than being able to do some more event based stuff with it. I went back and added some bootstrap to my code though and it actually looks pretty nice on my phone with the exception of the videos not lining up well.

can you link your codepen?
and do you have a link for the youtube api?
David Castner
@davidjcastner
May 19 2016 00:27
nevermind, found the api already, just need the codepen
Jonathan Herman

I was saying to Rob earlier too, I don't really understand a lot of the api stuff yet, I did all the jquery lessons but I've done nothing with the javascript lessons yet
David Castner
@davidjcastner

Yes this is using pure javascript, I'm reading through their api at the moment, but is there any particular issue you were having, or were you just not having it work at all?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
May 19 2016 00:31
I would remove one of the videos from html and try to do it with the api and it wouldn't do anything

Are you familiar with the browser console yet?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
May 19 2016 00:34
unless I'm calling it the wrong thing, no.
David Castner
@davidjcastner
May 19 2016 00:36
Okay it's a useful tool for debugging javascript and web code in general. Codepen has their own build in console at the bottom. But I recommend using chrome's browser console, you use it for any site. To use chrome's console open your codepen in debug mode and press f12
just a useful way to see what errors occured

does mac not have chrome?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
May 19 2016 00:38
not on mac, running Linux. We have chromium but it very seldomly runs the same services even though it's made by the same people.
David Castner
@davidjcastner
May 19 2016 00:46
i use ubuntu, and you can get chrom (not chromium) off of google's website
Jonathan Herman

May 19 2016 00:51
really? When did they start that? I had no idea lol
David Castner
@davidjcastner
May 19 2016 00:51
like a year ago
probably closer to two
alright I found the errors in your code
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
May 19 2016 00:52
damn I missed that one, I'll have to install it tomorrow we're closing down in a couple minutes.
what are you seeing?
David Castner
@davidjcastner
May 19 2016 00:53
here is a forked version of your code with plenty of comments explaining it (probably not though)
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
May 19 2016 00:53
awesome, I'll check it out in a few minutes gotta sign off
David Castner
@davidjcastner
May 19 2016 00:54
cool let me know if you have questions
also make sure to hit the run button on codepen after editting it
thats what this does in jQuery
$(document).ready(function() {
  //runs the code in this function after your html is rendered
  //the run button in codepen runs any javascript code that wasn't queued like this
});
David Castner
@davidjcastner
May 19 2016 01:24
@lantech19446 Oh one other thing about the console in codepen. You may have to hit the run button before you see any errors
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
May 19 2016 01:25
ok so I actually had made a div with the id player but it still wasn't working i definitely was missing some things though looking at your code. I hit run several times to load other changes and it wasn't coming up with any errors once I fixed that one bracket

And the road that you took brought you to here. A job that some would kill for to open a door into the tech field, a woman that loves the hell out of you, and a hunger for success. Money is just 1's and 0's my friend; it comes and goes.
David Castner
@davidjcastner
May 19 2016 01:35
@lantech19446 okay well hopefully that helps if you have any more questions just let me know
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
May 19 2016 01:35
yea I mean if i hadn't gone to lincoln tech eventually I would have gone away for school and probably not met Johanna, it's really only going to Walden I regret but other than the job I'm in right now I sink, as much as I want to do better I can't keep up with it especially starting so far behind it. I feel like this is what's going to be the big change for us. Right now those 1's and 0's are kicking our ass and I meditate on Ganesha every day that this will change so this is my first step in trying to make it happen.
@davidjcastner I think I understand it better than I did with your comments step 4 & 5 don't mean a lot to me yet but maybe I'll do the lessons on js and then come back too it.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
May 19 2016 01:43
I wonder if I have the id wrong it's just not targeting my div for some reason
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
May 19 2016 01:54
nice got it, was somehow missing another bracket that wasn't causing an error
Jonathan Herman

You can edit posts if you like. Click the * that pops up after the timestamp!
But only up to a few minutes after you post.
I just finished what I hope is the last email and paperwork for the meeting at the library.

May 19 2016 17:22
It was on the schedule to finish this week but I have spent soooo much time on MontCode making the chat presentation, the welcome presentation and writing that whole chat page that I'm quite behind schedule :weary:
Robert Maylie
@rmaylie9560
May 19 2016 17:25
Well just remember you have a troop of eager helpers. We are kinda in this together, ya know?
spread the load.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
May 19 2016 17:25
Yup yup! That's why the event that went out today says "However, if you have a topic you would like to present on, please let me know!"
Robert Maylie
@rmaylie9560
May 19 2016 17:44
I can help with that a little down the road. Unless you would like a video on how to make a paragraph in html. I can do that well!!! :laughing:
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
May 19 2016 17:46
Heh. Someday you might find that you are asking yourself a question. And then you set about researching the answer to this question. In that journey you find many nice resources. You feel it would be great to share all this new found information and resources with others. That would be a great presentation :joy:
