JavaScript Counting
Filed under: P2PU, coding/programming
Posted by: Algot @ 1:11 pm

A little of this, a little of that. This seems to be my syllabus. It is my personal “course” and I’m not expecting to get graded, so I’m comfortable with my meandering path.

It probably isn’t efficient, but then, I’ve never felt that learning is an efficient process. I find I make some progress, but only with trial and error. Figuring out what works means making a stab at a solution and taking the feedback of a failure. It also means seeking guidance from others (frequently through online searches these days).

OK, so what about the JavaScript counting?

I’d like to do some simple games at some point. Making them Web based seems like the upcoming thing with HTML5. JavaScript is the core scripting language of Web pages. Maybe it will turn out that Python is better (and I’m learning Python,too), but, I guess I need to try the different approaches to see what works.

Check out the first experimental steps here: http://runeman.org/programming/javascript/ and look for the Click Tests.

    Love your website, is this the default theme or a custom one?

    The theme is slightly tweaked. Most elements are fixed by the hosting company.
