    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.

    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.

    I was just trying to find things to do :) [you may find me a little goal-oriented - I also volunteer on Experts Exchange - sorry!]
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    More I think about it, the more you probably wanna do the HTML and CSS. There may be some new things in there.
    As FCC became more international, they simplified the naming scheme. There were challenges and bonfires and other things I can’t remember keeping with the camping theme, but the concept didn’t translate well, so :boom: simplfied.

    @dcpking_twitter
    ok. I'll take your advice ... but for now all it seems to be doing is showing me 3 or 4 lines of examples at a time ... like "here are 2 examples of the <h2> tag"
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    it picks up speed! promise!
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    ok. How long till I get to where you are? (don't answer if you don't want to!)
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Depends on your pace. I’m a full-time student (finally doing college after decades of employment).
    David and Rob are close and I think they started less than 2 months ago.
    And they both have full time jobs + lives.
    Conceptually you are ahead of the game, so I would guess you are going to get through the challenges quickly. The projects might be different (And honestly I haven’t really started any of them, only the ones I finished over winter break).

    Ah. Well, I've got a "Friends of North Wales Area Library" meeting to go to tomorrow (I run their web site and FB group), and some SQL to study, but aside from that only the cats to feed :smile:
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    hey @dcpking_twitter you should consider presenting SQL to the group!
    (reiterating the mention)
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Already on the list!
    heh
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    So what / how should I present? For example, should I assume that everyone knows absolutely nothing at all about SQL or even structured data?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    We’ll do a survey beforehand
    I’ll email you once I get some details together.
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    That sounds good. Actually, maybe we should start off with just "Data". Unstructured, semi-structured, and structured ....
    What do people use for presentations, or is it all done live?
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    screen share/live... whatever your comfortable with.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I’ll email you once I get some details together :p Not tryin’ to be a brat.
    Got some details to deal with first.
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    Not being a brat at all!!! BTW, I'm sorry about not being there tomorrow. Does the Wednesday meet in Eaglesville happen every week too?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    every other week through the summer.
    MontCode has seriously only been live for 21 days now so a lot of the details are still being worked up.
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    Oh! I didn't realise. Crazy good group so soon!
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I know right!!!
    I’ve been blessed.

    hey will anyone be around tomorrow, I'm going to need help on the JS challenge "Stand In Line" but totally don't have the brain power to put tacks to it tonight
    Michael Irwin
    @dcpking_twitter
    ok. I need to get stuff out of the dryer so I don't have to commando and topless to work tomorrow.
    G'nite all!
    (I'll not be at the meeting, Jonathan, but maybe I can help afterwards)
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Sure thing! I’ll be around off and on throughout the day and I’ll be keeping an eye on the room while at the library.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    ok cool, I won't be at the meeting because work but I'll post my questions at some point. Most of the array stuff really has me thrown for a loop so maybe i'll hold off until I watch the videos for it too
