  • What will you do with that knowledge?

Questions?

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

    Highlights / Metacognition

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Gathering input information from user and display them dynamically on the webpage.

    What did you learn from that?
    Writing a function to receive users’ input and output the result as alert box or single line text.

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    I can apply the knowledge to my web developer job.

    Questions?
    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    As we discuss in the class, output the message without destroy the whole page will be helpful.

    What could we have done better?
    I’m satisfied with the knowledge I received for our second session.

    Highlights / Metacognition

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight? Reminder of scope
    What did you learn from that? Functions can use global variables, but not the other way around
    What will you do with that knowledge? Be careful with my scope

    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    I would like to know about objects

  3. Jessica Skuk says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight? The most valuable moment for me was when we discussed how you can use JS to call up href details instead of coding them for each instance.

    What did you learn from that? It was a solution to familiar problem and showed me JS can make life so much easier!

    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    What could we have done better? Nothing better, I’m happy we were able to write more code.

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

    It was interesting to learn how to manipulate entries in a form with JavaScript. I liked the very last example where we were converting kilos to pounds and back. At first it seemed a bit mind bending but after a few tries I got it to work.

    What did you learn from that?

    JavaScript can really simplify the process of creating the dynamics on the web.

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    I don’t want to be one of those designers who blindly copy/paste the code without having a good understanding of it. I am going to apply what I learn in the class and perhaps include some extra tutorials

    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    What could we have done better?
    I don’t have anything constructive to add at this moment. Good job!

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Getting into the programming was definitely the most valuable portion of this class
    What did you learn from that?
    Learning more how to incorporate javascript into the html files. I really liked the form portion, accepting user input to process in some way.
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    For web development I will play around with this to make my own forms
    Questions?

    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    I would like to go into object oriented programming now as well as learn more properties of the relationship between javascript and html for web development.
    What could we have done better?
    Not sure

    – What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight? Getting more hands-on experience coding in JavaScript.
    – What did you learn from that? I learned that there’s no ‘void’ in JavaScript for when your function doesn’t return anything.
    – What will you do with that knowledge? I will use this knowledge going forward.

    Questions?

    – Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know? I want to learn more about how to combine JavaScript, HTML and CSS in one project.
    – What could we have done better? The class was great! It’s nice when we step through the code and watch its behaviour. Looking forward to the third class!

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Learning how to call functions that were elsewhere in the code.
    What did you learn from that?
    Exactly how to implement the kind of abstraction we had been talking about earlier.
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Repeat myself less.

    Questions?
    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    What else we can do with user input.
    What could we have done better?
    Don’t know!

  8. Dustin says:

    Highlights / Metacognition
    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Learning the different way to utilize functions to get similar results
    What did you learn from that?
    That there is usually more than one way to code something, and all things should be considered (scalability, etc.) before deciding on which route to take.
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Try to have more foresight when coding functions

    Questions?
    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    More about jQuery
    What could we have done better?
    N/A

  9. Elaya says:

    Highlights / Metacognition
    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Seeing that functions can be coded in different manners, but have the same result.
    What did you learn from that?
    That there could be a more optimal way to code a function.
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Take into consideration of the different ways that I could code a certain function, so that I can find a way that would be most optimal if I needed to change something in the future.

    Questions?
    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know?
    More of how javascript interacts with HTML.
    What could we have done better?
    No idea, everything was good.

  10. Maggie says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight? Playing around with the forms was interesting!

    What will you do with that knowledge? Can apply this knowledge to create more dynamic and interactive user interfaces.
    Questions? Would like to know how this can interact with css as well. Like if I want an output to be a chart that’s driven by user input data or calculations.

    Now that we’ve had our second session, what do you want to know? Let’s do more of this! Hands on learning is much more engaging.
    What could we have done better? n/a

    1- I confused about scope of variables. I changed a global variable from inside a function, and it was dangerous. Maybe someone uses global variable in his function by mistake, and affect the value of the global code. Sometimes maybe two different person write codes, and they choose same name for their variables. They may affect eachother variables. Why we write F(X,Y)? It means send X and Y to function F. If function F has access to X and Y, why we “send” them to the function?

    2- I like to learn more about how we can save received data? For example we can say employees to put enter their work times in a java script form everyday. That form should “save” them somewhere, so after 15 days, we have a database and we can calculate the salary. We assigned “Return False” to the buttom. What if it not be False? What if we change our Button from “Button” to “Submit”?
