“Life is accumulative — Either our errors accumulate to what we don’t get, or our wise decisions accumulate into what we do get.” — Jim Rohn
A simple reminder that the course of our lives can change dramatically with the simple steps we take each and every day.
Over the past six months I have been living and road tripping across the United States. While I was on the road I decided to learn about the super-hot-and-trending Vue.js framework and build a USA Roadtrip App along the way. There’s a reason why Vue is so damn popular, and I will share some insights in this post. But I had to find that out for myself so I understood what all the fuss was about. What better way to test it out than to build a side project 🙂
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!
In this post I will describe the method I used to solve the Free Code Camp Missing Letter Algorithm. It isn’t too tricky, but this is the sort of algorithm challenge that can trip you up if you don’t read the question carefully. Luckily, I’ll show you a nice and easy-to-understand method.
In this post I will describe the method I used to solve the Free Code Camp DNA Pairing Algorithm challenge. It’s a great exercise to build up your of Array strength! I’m going to show how I solved this challenge using two different methods.
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…)
