100 Days of Code: Day 32
100 Days of Code, Round 1
Goals For Today:
While I didn’t do what I originally intended today, I have begun learning about ECMAScript 2015 and the newest 2017 standards.
I’ve also begun editing my CSS and transitioning from the code widget I’ve been using to standard HTML code snippets within my posts using <pre> and <code> tags.
I’m noticing that I am increasingly more confident in my CSS skills as I continue this challenge, which is amazing.
I have been a bit under the weather today. I get really bad sinus/allergy headaches and sometimes the medicine that I take to make them go away does more harm than good. Such was the case today as I took one allergy pill and it knocked me on my butt all afternoon. I slept from around 1 until close to 5:30 and I am still fighting the fatigue now.
The thing you have to remember when coding or living in the world of technology, is that just when you think you've begun to master something, there's probably a new standard or component that you know nothing about. Click To Tweet
The silver lining to this is that:
- It encouraged me to learn more about ECMAScript, which I didn’t even know existed up until that point
- If I am going to stop using var and start using another keyword to create new variables, let isn’t such a bad way to go. After all, let food = cucumber; is inherently easy to read and understand.
- You can also, of course, go straight to the source and review the full ECMA-262 (ECMAScript 2017 Language Specification) released by Ecma International.
