    Hi Jim

    What I found most valuable from last night’s course was learning about the benefits and detractors of “use strict”, and the different ways of using it within code. You can “use strict” for the whole JavaScript tag, within a function, or apply to your code and not an external JavaScript library. In my assignments, I will try out using strict mode to help me write better JavaScript code.

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Today I learned about the importance of ‘use strict’.

    What did you learn from that?
    Employing ‘Use Strict’ inside of a function protects your older code from malfunctioning and ensures that the code you write today will continue to function in the future. Sustainability.
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    I will need to use strict in my projects.
    Now that we’ve had our first session, what do you want to know?
    What is Octal?
