In this post I show you how to solve the Free Code Camp Boo Who Algorithm. It is actually probably one of the easiest problems out there, but it can trip you up if you don’t do your research. A bit of Googling and reading up, and you’ll knock this one over in no time. Let’s begin!
Everyone is saying jQuery is dead these days. But I’m sorry, I have to disagree. While there are, of course, better, more “modern” libraries and frameworks out there, it really doesn’t mean jQuery is going to just disappear. Most people who say it is dead:
a.) probably don’t work as a web developer;
b.) are part of a trendy new startup that only uses 2017 tech or;
c.) just love to fuel the debate and ride the latest JS bandwagon!
It’s been just over 12 months since I started my Free Code Camp Front End Certificate. In those past twelve months I have taken on a lot of new information and have thoroughly enjoyed learning to code. Now that I have recently finished the Front End Certificate, I thought it would be a good time to reflect and share some insights. (more…)
I highly recommend these CodeWars Kata’s for anyone wanting to improve their programming skills. It’s a great way to train your brain and stay sharp. It also is an excellent tool to practice new techniques, especially when learning new syntax (take ES6 / 7 as a fine example). The best part about it is, that when you complete a kata, you can review your work and compare it to other coders. (more…)
In this post I will describe the method I used to solve the Free Code Camp Pig Latin Algorithm challenge. This was quite a challenging problem for me as it involved quite a few moving parts. However, it was really worth the pain because it taught me a lot about string manipulation, which is quite a common task in day-to-day web development work. (more…)
I don’t know about you, but after the last bonfire challenge this one was almost too easy. In this post I will show you how to write a simple search & replace algorithm. You could almost write this in literal pseudo code and get it to work!
This is a short post to help front end developers access Instagrams API. Recently I was asked to “plugin” an instagram feed for a client, and after doing some initial research I found that all the tutorials out there were broken and therefore “out of date”.
