Finding balance

IMG_2983

WOW! December was an awkward month for me.  It was so difficult to balance home life with Hacking my Education.  Every time I sat down to learn the material I was interrupted by a snotty nosed little boy or girl:)

 

Of course trying to prepare for Christmas day took a huge chunk of my time as well.  I finally finished my lesson on JavaScript, JQuery, and API’s.

 

During ‘the most wonderful time of the year’  I successfully created a ‘text to Pig Latin’ converter.  I did this by using Arrays.

 

An array is a data type that store a group of things.  I found learning arrays to be very easy and useful.

 

I also learned how to loop through an array using FizzBuzz.  This is a test that software companies use to evaluate the potential developer.

 

Here is a screenshot of the project where I used different color shades.  When you hover, click, or double-click the object, it will change according to the code, and the text will change prompting the user with a new message.

Looking through the shades.

Below I posted ‘The Magic 8 Ball’ project.  This was one of my favorite toys as a kid.  I never thought I would be creating a virtual one, but I successfully did.

My Magic 8 Ball

A List of #geek terms for ya!

 

DOM, JSON, API, AJAX

 

Hope every one had a Merry Christmas.  I am still trying to sort through all the goodies Santa dropped off.  This may take me months!

 

I am looking forward to starting 2015.  I plan to complete more reading and begin a new programming language called Ruby.

 

Wish me luck with finding balance!
