    Yo, here's the Gitter for students who I am TA-ing for! If you were added here by mistake, feel free to leave, and sorry 'bout that.

    Everyone doing okay?

    so far so good. Just trying to decide on a guessing game to make

    @AMPotter

    Mine was way stupid. "Can you figure out my favorite genre of music?"

    And then like, you'd just type in random genres until I said "Yep."

    Try to make it more creative than that, but like, we're testing your coding, not your creative writing.
    Jo
    @thenobleone
    nods i figured as much, just this is where I have the most trouble. Once I have an idea, I can go nuts with it and be creative. The trick is is just getting that starting idea.

    Hello!

    Good morning.

    Does anyone know if you can you use .toUpperCase() in html on it's own or does it require using it in a .js file?
    Nick Klunder
    @nklunder
    @thenobleone hey, i'm actually in this room by mistake, and saw your question while going to close the chat... but anyway, probably the easiest way to get what you are looking for is just to set 'text-transform: uppercase;' in your CSS for that particular element
    Jo
    @thenobleone
    thanks.

    Well shoot, would you believe that there's another Nicholas Klunder from Seattle who codes? What are the odds? Thanks for letting me know that you're the OTHER Nicholas Klunder, I'll have to go find the one I'm looking for. Bonus points for answering a question while you're here! Thanks.
    @thenobleone You should be able to do everything in one HTML file for this assignment, with all your JS in <script> tags. If you're using separate JS and CSS files though, then you'll have a head start on a future assignment (on top of just going above and beyond).

    @nklunder
    @AMPotter That's crazy talk! So there is someone currently in Foundations 1 named Nicholas Klunder? I'd like to meet them. Maybe we can form some kind of alliance.

    okay, I think i'm going nuts.
    I'm trying to finish off the code academy JS course and it's asking me to make a Constructor Notation
    this is what I have:
    var spencer2 = new Object ();
    spencer2.age = 22;
    spencer2.country = "United States";
    it keep telling me it's the wrong type.
    and when I go back and look at the lesson with a matching title that shows that setup so not sure where I'm going wrong.
    Jo
    @thenobleone
    .... it didn't like the space between Object and the parentheses.

    hey guys, I'm trying to copy-paste my code from sublime onto canvas, and it isn't recognizing indentations. any ideas? Thanks!
    Jo
    @thenobleone
    I just left it that way.
    CliffordChen
    @CliffordChen
    @thenobleone I was thinking that, but afraid that will result in a lot of extra work for the TA's?
    Jo
    @thenobleone
    It's Javascript, whitespace doesn't matter.
    Programming like Python and C++ whitespace does matter but HTML and Javascript doesn't actually care about the whitespace to run so I'd be guessing that the TAs are mainly just going to C/P into sublime and run it.
    CliffordChen
    @CliffordChen
    Alright, thanks for the heads up. I know nothing...
    Jo
    @thenobleone
    Glad I could help. Sorry if i came off as short, suddenly had a bunch of things come my way as I was typing.
    CliffordChen
    @CliffordChen
    No worries, appreciate it!

    anyone reading the git book?
    just wondering
    Jo
    @thenobleone
    Not yet, trying to finish the javascript codeacademy thing. I keep over thinking most of it.
    also things like console.log("Hello this is a" + " " + this.breed + " " + "dog”); allows you to pass while
    console.log(“Hello this is a ” + this.breed + “ dog.”); doesn’t.
    Jayden0306
    @Jayden0306
    the code academy wants you print out same output that they provided with no miss space.
    Jo
    @thenobleone
    Right, I put the space between the a and the quote and a space between the " and dog.
    Jayden0306
    @Jayden0306
    I am still working on the try git assignment. I didn't finish on time because I was tired from work yesterday. :(

    Hey guys, I found this very helpful, wanted to share:
    Andrew Michael Potter
    @AMPotter
    @CliffordChen Don't worry too much about indentation when you're copy/pasting to Canvas. Worry about indentation, but not in that specific instance. I'll start grading your indentation when you start turning stuff in to Git, which is where I'll actually be able to see your indentation as you did it.

    @CliffordChen
    @AMPotter thanks for the heads up!
