Until I solve one short programming problem, and feel super, super smart for about 30 seconds.
But this week has been fun. I slacked a little on Tuesday and Wednesday, and have to catch up this weekend. I haven't made nearly enough progress this week and now I'm feeling very behind.
Accomplishments for Week 4:
- I learned to use quotes to signify a string. So that means that 4 and "4" are actually different (4 === "4" is false.)
- I learned how to declare/ define a variable. (var favAnimal = "redPanda")
- I got some practice using logical operators - && , || and !
- This has already come in handy while writing requirements for a very technical feature at work this week - and I used this AND operator to succinctly convey the logic I was asking for to engineers.
- “green” > “Green” - put it in your console - the result is ‘true’ - I still don’t quite understand this!
Ah-ha! Moment of the week:
- Adding Strings together is called ‘concatenating’. I’ve heard this word for years didn't realize it's actually a programming term.
- Null = value of nothing. Undefined = has no value. They are different and it’s hard to explain, but after playing with this idea for a while, I do get it.
- NaN - Acronomicon! NaN stands for 'not a number.’
