Can you see how this applies to what you are doing before our sessions and while we are together?

Please reply with a comment about our second session.  A little bit of theory, a little bit of coding, and some thinking to do to get the assignment done (see the course site – assignment two).

Highlights / Metacognition

  • What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
  • What did you learn from that?
  • What will you do with that knowledge?

Questions?

  • Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
  • What could we have done better?

If you spot a question from someone else and you can answer it – please do.

Reminder: Please add at least one question and answer at least five in Peerwise.

    It’s nice to see just how close to C the syntax is, much of what I already know is transferable, although the way that everything ends up being an object without being declared.

    What did you learn from that?
    I learned that javascript is a powerful tool for creating dynamic content on websites. Most of my experience has been using php using passing of data through submits and refreshing. I can see how client side would allow some pre-processing of forms without needing to do so many refreshes.

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    I’d like to learn more about ajax and how that applies to javascript so that I can broaden my knowledge.

    Creating functions and interactivity with javascript

    •What did you learn from that?
    It’s not that complex once you break it down in its components.

    •What will you do with that knowledge?
    Have fun with Assignment 2.

    Questions?
    •Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    Looking forward to building more complex pages

    •What could we have done better?
    Can’t think of anything. It was a productive evening.

  4. I learned that syntax is super important. A missing bracket or curly brace can break a function and a whole program. I will need to pay more attention to these.
    Also, not to forget to call a function. Just creating a function is not enough 🙂 This is what happened to me with the last iteration function that we created at class.

    It was a great lecture. I finally started to understand purpose of Javascrpt. Theoretical stuff we learned at Programming Basics course started to make sense. I need to adapt my way of thinking to write a code with all braces, brackets and other usual suspects.

    Learning and using syntax properly for one. Having implicitly declared variables. For example, You can have function footer(doc name) where “doc name” can be an implicit variable. I has not been declared before hand. Having function footer() where there is no parameter or argument and the function would still work.

    What did you learn from that?

    That you can still have some output without getting any errors, You need to know the expected results beforehand. For example, the iteration example we worked with. One minor change and the results are very different.

    What will you do with that knowledge?

    Build on some of the basics that we are learning by improving the script.

    How it would reduce the repetitive coding
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Write efficient codes that would be easily understood and edited by others
