    So I have a recusion question...
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    go for it Robert
    (again and again and again )

    the validations when using if statements. How do the 1 (true) -1(false) stop the loop but still retain the value?
    does that question make sense? I worded it weird.

    Java script but the process is pretty much the same across languages, right?

    You have a function and inside it you're saying "if variable then call me" ? You have to have some way for the variable being used to obtain a value
    Or else you can decide that you'll only go 10 deep (for example) and pass in the depth as a parameter as you invoke then function. Inside, it does its thing and then says "if depth < 10 then { depth += 1; call me(depth)" (pardon the pseudocode

    btw, Did that make sense?

    function factorialize(num) {
        if (num < 0) {
            return -1;
        }
    
        else if (num === 0) {                                       // returns true when "num" hits 0 and breaks? does this hold true to all methods? 
            return 1;
        }
        else 
            return (num * factorialize(num - 1));  //in this case the end equation will be 5*4*3*2*1=120
    
    }
    
    factorialize(5);
    whoops
    \ not //

    That looks ok - although equality is "==", not "===", isn't it?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    javascript has a ===
    2 == “2” is true
    2 === “2” is false
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    === is the strict operator

    @Lilyheart
    So we all be blind and there is a dang button that says CONSOLE at the bottom of the screen. /sigh
    I’ll let him know tomorrow.

    @rmaylie9560
    that is super awesome info tho.
    i love chromes dev tools tho
    @dcpking_twitter :laughing:
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Oh, I found the conversation. @lantech19446 asked and @davidjcastner already knew about but said it works differently.
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    super dave!
    :laughing:
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    The advantage to CodePens is that you can share a link to the pen with the console data https://blog.codepen.io/2016/01/27/new-feature-javascript-console/

    Hi @Lilyheart, I was looking at starting the javascript course ... do you really need the whole of that huge HTML first? (I coded HTML for about 6 years!)
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Depends on what your goal are! If you are just doing it to learn, then just complete what you want to learn!
    If you are doing it for FCC certification (which allows you to volunteer for their non-profit projects) here is what needs to be done https://freecodecamp.github.io/wiki/en/freecodecamp-front-end-development-certification/
    But, there is some css thrown into the HTML so if you are a little hazy on that, it might be worth it. Honestly it’ll take you a fraction of the time listed.
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    ok. I'm just browsing down it ... never saw making objects before, but I'm looking forward to the CSS. Why are all the pages called "Challenges" ? I don't see anything in the way of a question in the whole thing, or am I missing something somewhere ?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    There used to be a whole naming scheme. They just simplifed it to challenges.
    I don’t even think the name challenges is referenced anywhere other than the URL (and by me) but I could be wrong.
