Howdy @Tavorodz and @TScottM12 .
We have a wide range of skills from the brand new to the decades of experience. It's been a lot of fun.

Yay activity in the chat
what'd I miss?
@Tavorodz Welcome to freecodecamp! I've been working as a programmer for about 2.5 years. What got you interested in learning to code?

I've dabbled in design and development off and on for years, so I have some experience, but not in a professional setting. And despite having a degree and having done some graduate work it's all in an unrelated field, so trying to get my foot in the door somewhere has been a challenge.

Not speaking from personal experience but from what I've heard from others, making projects for whatever reason can really help with that.

I have two problems i dont understand grid systems even after reading about it and I do not know where to put this slide show code that jason made.
The slide show code has java script and html and csss in it
I need to put into my style guide
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 21:04
javascript goes in a somenamehere.js file and the css would go into your css file with the rest.
JBC944
@JBC944
Dec 06 2016 21:05
how would I link java script to the style guide?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 21:06
looking for a quick write up on that now cuz i'm too lazy to do it xD
<script type="text/javascript" src="somenamehere.js"></script>
where you put that in the file matters. But I don't know the code Jason did so I would probably put it at the very bottom of the page just before the </body></html> but i can't find a write up quick enough to explains the whys.

@JBC944
Dec 06 2016 21:10
wouldnt it go in the head?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 21:11
depends on the code
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Dec 06 2016 21:11
if I remember correctly it depends on the scope you want your variables to have to some extent
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 21:12
try it and see if it works. it's hard to say without having the time to dig into the code.
@lantech19446 it's due to load order in the DOM. end is safer as everything in the DOM has loaded. But... the page may draw on the screen before the js does its thing which can do weird things depending.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Dec 06 2016 21:13
o ok
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 21:14
like, if the script says make div #blah blue and div #blah hasn't loaded yet, then the script will do nothing even once the div is loaded in memory.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Dec 06 2016 21:19
o ok makes sense
and it's sleeting again
I cant figure out why the slide show wont work
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Dec 06 2016 22:13
because your source is pulling from a local image where no local storage exists, in other words cat01.jpg means nothing to my computer it would need to be src="webaddress.com
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 22:16
Ooops, sorry I'm late. Stupid weather is killin' me.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Dec 06 2016 22:16
@JBC944 you would want it to be something like <img class="slide" src="https://github.com/lantech19446/mypictures/blob/master/1024px-Reddit.svg.png?raw=true"
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 22:17
oh @JBC944 I see how jason did the code. Did he give it to you so that it all was supposed to be in the header in script tags?

Hi guys, I'm new here. My name is Katya. I just joined and about to watch the welcome video

Stupid rain

Dec 06 2016 22:20
@JBC944 what Jon said. Fixing the URLs of the images to filename that open and it will work. http://s.codepen.io/lilyheart/debug/zojNay Maybe you have your cat images inside a folder? If so, make sure you update the file name references.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Dec 06 2016 22:20
at least it's not sleeting anymore lol
Katya Robinson
@KatyaRobinson
Dec 06 2016 22:20
But I'm glad to meet everyone :)
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 22:20
@lantech19446 it was sleeting in East Norriton like 10 mins ago. I was pelted coming into the house!
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Dec 06 2016 22:20
yea I could hear it at the library, I have a glass pyramid near my desk lol
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 22:21
I'm not going out to see if it is xD

I love your name @KatyaRobinson I've only ever met a katya in Iceland
it's not anymore

So, ya'll might know. This week is the Hour of Code week! If you want something silly do there are lot of of choices here https://hourofcode.com/us/learn
Katya Robinson
@KatyaRobinson
Dec 06 2016 22:21
Thanks Jonathan, it's Russian (just like me!)
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 22:22
However, the link I posted on Facebook today is probably my fav! http://hello.processing.org/ [tagging @KR62 even though I already tagged her on Facebook cuz this looks right up her alley]
Katya Robinson
@KatyaRobinson
Dec 06 2016 22:24
Do you guys have real life meet ups as well?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 22:24
We do! go to www.montcode.com
That will take you to the meetup page.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Dec 06 2016 22:25
very nice, and I saw that you're in Philly, Northeast?\
I really need to do some sort of project, just don't know what. I'm so indecisive anymore
Katya Robinson
@KatyaRobinson
Dec 06 2016 22:27
Yeah, but I just moved here a couple of months ago so I'm still getting familiar with the area. I just looked up - your library meetup location is kind of close to my work so I might stop by after I get off
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 22:28
Awesome! Just a heads up that we are looking for another meetup space as the library tends to have wifi issues which can make things a struggle.
Katya Robinson
@KatyaRobinson
Dec 06 2016 22:29
Side note: don't go to Chick-a-filla, I'm struggling here with internet connection...
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Dec 06 2016 22:29
Where did you move here from? I only guessed Northeast because there's where all the Polish and Ukranian communities are too lol I'm originally from just outside of Chestnut Hill which is North West philly
JBC944
@JBC944
Dec 06 2016 22:31
I guessing lily
I was going to ask jason today but he barely helps me in lab time
and I tried emailing him the question and he hasnt replied back yet
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 22:31
Guessing on what Jimmy? Oh, where to put the code? Putting it in the somename.js file and linking in a script tag is the best practices way.
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Dec 06 2016 22:33
They have to do something about these notification balloons lol I'm still getting notifications for messages like 10 minutes ago
Katya Robinson
@KatyaRobinson
Dec 06 2016 22:33
@lantech19446 haha it was actually just a coincidence! I moved there from a beach town in Delaware after living there for 8 long years. The plan is to move closer to the Center City, hopefully next year
Lily Romano

I suggest the "Announcements" level so you don't miss any messages that have you tagged.

sounds like fun, my sister in-law used to live right on south broad street in some beautiful apartments called 777 south broad. Just don't ever move to Havertown they're the crazy Russians down there, beautiful town beautiful houses but holy crap.
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Dec 06 2016 22:36
@KatyaRobinson what is your goal to learn? Web development? Front End? Full Stack?
Katya Robinson
@KatyaRobinson
Dec 06 2016 22:36
haha crazy Russians is one of the reasons I left Russia in the first place

my exes parents are brilliant but definitely fit that category he's an award winning microbotanist she discovered a flower in some uncharted mountain in siberia and they both ran from the communists. Produced a daughter with no pain receptors who drank salvia tea every chance she got and was a master pianist before she was 13 all of them lived in havertown all of them absolutely insane.
Katya Robinson
@KatyaRobinson
Dec 06 2016 22:38
@Lilyheart right now I'm concentrating on Front End but my ultimate goal is Full Stack. I've been learning JavaScript for the past few months, mostly following tutorials and going through the FreeCodeCamp curriculum

I used to be a people person but people ruined it for me. Now I'm thinking I'd prefer to go back end I have no experience with it and i realize I'd still have to deal with people but at least when the database gets messed up and my boss asks what's wrong I can tell him it's fucked in the back end

Dec 06 2016 22:48
Are you trying to transition into development?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Dec 06 2016 22:48
yes, I got into admin right as the economy crashed and it seems changing my focus will be the only way to stay in IT and catch up with modern salary requirements
Katya Robinson
@KatyaRobinson
Dec 06 2016 22:49
On man I gotta hop off. Chick-a-filla has filled up and people are giving me dirty looks. I'll drive home and check if anybody's still here. Is this chat on-going or will it end at 8??
Lily Romano

Dec 06 2016 23:07
lulz. I'm not sure David would want my soldering skills :) I've done that tree... and that's about it.
except for soldering a bunch of resisters to a perf board for practice. Then my roommate used it and apparently my iron is shit and haven't gotten a new one so who knows if i'd be good at it or not.

Given it's getting to be the end of a semester, I'm not all that surprised by mine.
Although i thought stack overflow would be higher (didn't even make the 50pts and higher... it's at 14.7 :O )

Dec 06 2016 23:30
meh, i get paid by google for it xD
I'd guess part of it is because I store my history with google and that's my choice. All sorts of things you can opt out of and opt in of.

If anyone does use chrome/android, and is wondering what I meant by I get paid. Cross Media Panel Browser + Phone + Tablet = $3 a week = $156 a year. I also don't mind big data because I understand it and can control for the most part how it gets my data.
