    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.

    @Lilyheart
    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
    javascript goes in a somenamehere.js file and the css would go into your css file with the rest.
    JBC944
    @JBC944
    how would I link java script to the style guide?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    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
    @JBC944
    wouldnt it go in the head?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    depends on the code
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    if I remember correctly it depends on the scope you want your variables to have to some extent
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    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
    o ok
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    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
    o ok makes sense
    and it's sleeting again
    I cant figure out why the slide show wont work
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    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
    Ooops, sorry I'm late. Stupid weather is killin' me.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    @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
    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?

    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Hi @KatyaRobinson !
    Katya Robinson
    @KatyaRobinson
    Okay I guess, got a little wet running from my car to Chick-a-filla where I am now :/
    Stupid rain
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    @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
    at least it's not sleeting anymore lol
