    Highlights / Metacognition

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?

    I think the most valuable thing was somehow piecing together some of the ideas that you wanted us to learn, such as creating objects, and storing objects in local storage. Once we start throwing in additional styling properties with content written with semantic meaning, we’re set!

    What did you learn from that?

    Although it took me some research and practice to learn and implement these ideas, I see how they come together to create a much bigger picture with more interactive features. I also learned that JSON converts unicode strings to objects, which is necessary if I want to read the data later correctly.

    What will you do with that knowledge?

    I will be one step closer to knowing how to store objects in data, with ease. I am not too sure how I will use this at this point though.

    Questions?

    What is the big difference between a string and object? Why does entering numbers into an object complicate things?

    Now that we’ve had our last session, what do you want to know?

    I want to know more syntax, and more basic details like what JSON is.

    What could we have done better?

    I think we can give 20 second definitions of terms like JSON, even though we didn’t discuss JSON today. Can we also quickly talk about common APIs and how they work?

    So many valuable things! Um… generally just interacting and doing more things in Javascript, proper syntax.

    What did you learn from that?
    Getting more comfortable, also playing with sessions and storage.

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Make some really fun applications.

    I’m kind of curious about what everyone considers their biggest syntax improvements. I’m just figuring this out, and I want to keep proper syntax in mind. I wonder what kind of mistakes people were making and I should watch out for. I suppose the strict coding mode in javascript would make for great practice. Any other suggestions?
