@Sonju I am doing the same (transitioning out of a music career into the tech field!) :)
For me, I find learning the concepts OK. It's finding real life situations in which to use them that is the challenge
@lyndseybrowning me too
@lyndseybrowning Yes! Same here!
@anthonybrown Definitely think of a project. I did this; I wrote my own little word game in vanilla JS so that I could become more accustomed to not using jQuery and also understanding prototype. It helped a lot
My friends call that "constipation of the brain". Having all of the knowledge up there, but not being able to use it in "real life". :)
@/all Thanks everyone for joining! I'm going to get back to work. If you have anything for me specifically, just @justinbmeyer so I see it. Thanks again :-)
Hey thanks again Bitovi
By not using jQuery, I mean not relying on it so much, where it may not be needed :)
@Madelene Good luck to you! A know how to read sheet music from my days as viola player in middle school. Do you find coding like reading music?
@Sonju THANKS. Good luck to you, too! I think we're "doing the right thing". There are so many opportunities out there in the tech field :) Coding is similar to music! The skills are transferrable: Patterns, practice, discipline, etc. Thanks for the coding projects idea, btw :)
@OlgaMaraeva We will get to that, but in about 2-3 lessons. You can check the schedule and see when we talk about closures / prototypes. We will talk all about dependency management eventually.
Thanks for making this training available. I liked the conceptual introduction rather than the usual boring language details that are easy to lookup. One thing that confuses me with JS is the exploding tools/frameworks/libraries in the ecosystem. If you at least mention few of these and what they are and how they relate/differ from others; it would be great help. Thanks again.
@justinbmeyer Thank you for answer! I will wait for your lessons. Its really interesting and easy to understand.
Welcome everyone! We’ll get started shortly, just a few technical difficulties :)
