    @gpsims like @Lilyheart said - whatever needs to change goes into a variable, and whatever doesn't need to change goes in " "
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Just remember to watch your spaces! Here is the challenge Michael.

    @gpsims
    result= "The " + myAdjective + myNoun + myVerb + myAdverb + " home.";
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    The bigdogranquickly home.
    Michael Perry
    @keepsabbathholy_twitter
    Yeah you have to add spaces
    So like "The " + var + " " + anotherVar, etc.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    So I start with result = "The big dog ran quickly home."; Then I delete the letters big and replace with " + myAdjective + " then replace the letters dog with " + myNoun + " etc. Then you know the spaces will stick.

    @keepsabbathholy_twitter
    That's a good idea @Lilyheart. I'd go with that @gpsims. That way you know the formatting won't be goofed in the end.
    gpsims
    @gpsims
    ok retyping it now
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    @gpsims On this page you can find the challenge and see how I solved it if that helps.

    @gpsims
    thank you, i had my quotes all screwed up
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    @gpsims if you come to a meetup, remind me, and I'll show you how I actually type it in so I know my quotes don't get all wonky. It's hard to explain over text xD
    gpsims
    @gpsims
    ok no problem

    This is a very helpful subreddit for people looking to teach themselves how to program btw: https://www.reddit.com/r/learnprogramming/
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    That's a good one! I also recommend https://www.reddit.com/r/dailyprogrammer/ for daily challenges.
    And https://www.reddit.com/r/ProgrammerHumor/ for when you need a giggle.

    So is jQuery really outdated now or what?
    Everyone's telling me to not bother with it anymore
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    From what I understand... jQuery was created to help cover some holes in basic JavaScript. It helped with cross-browser implementation and in general made things easier. As vanilla JavaScript has evolved, it has fixed many of these issues making jQuery unnecessary in many ways. It's more about using the right tool for the job and now, many times, jQuery is no longer that tool and it's just unnecessary bloat because vanilla can now serve as many of the same functions (ha, joke).
    @davidjcastner may have an opinion on that if he's around.
    Michael Perry
    @keepsabbathholy_twitter
    So I'm guessing this is a point of contention for many people?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    exactly. But it seems like to me that many programmers (of pretty much any flavor) like to find points of contention for fun or for ego or for whatever /shrug.
    My personal opinion is it's worth at least having some knowledge of it as you never know what kind of code you many need to support in the future. But I personally wouldn't use it on any new project unless necessary but that goes for any framework. Thorough evaluation of any framework.
    Michael Perry
    @keepsabbathholy_twitter
    Very true points
    Alright everyone, I'm out for now. See you all next time!
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    See ya @keepsabbathholy_twitter ! We are always here in chat so feel free to stop in whenever!
    Michael Perry
    @keepsabbathholy_twitter
    Oh cool! Well, I definitely will sometime. Bye!
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    @keepsabbathholy_twitter I agree with @Lilyheart, jQuery is becoming out of date as vanilla javascript has become more advanced. JQuery makes writing code a little faster because of the syntax, but it encourages bad practices and is much slower than vanilla javascript. This is now my opinion: I recommend learning how to accomplish tasks using vanilla javascript as it gives you a much better understanding of how the the code interacts with web page. It might be take longer to learn, but will allow you to have more control over your web page in the end.

    @roiegat_twitter I saw you were RSVPd for the meetup Wednesday. With the snow and such are you still bringing the drone?

    @Jhighl
    I bought a arduino and downloaded the software but the code wont download to the uno anyone know why
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    What arduino did you get?
    oops, you said uno. xD
    gimme a sec
    @Jhighl
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    @Jhighl Didja get it?
    Jhighl
    @Jhighl
    yeah kinda is there a safety or just unplug as i am now. am afraid i will break it.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    As long as it's not transferring data, you can just unplug it.
    It would only be transferring just after you hit the arrow button in the IDE and you'd see text on the bottom of the screen. As long as all that is done, you are good to go.
