100 Days of Code: Day 34

How do you turn spaghetti and meatballs into cupcakes? I don't know, but I just did. I finished and ditched my JavaScript ES6 study and have moved back to the Free Code Camp product landing page project.

[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”The Good (and Bad):” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]I have been spending so much time these past few days trying to satisfy my curiosity about JavaScript ES6 (or ECMAScript 6) but it’s only led to more questions and frustration. I think there’s probably a good reason why most courses/tutorials are continuing to use plain old JavaScript. While I understand more about ECMAScript, I can’t help but feel as though I have somewhat wasted my time in learning most of this because there are still so many browser compatibility issues. Is it really worth my time right now?

The answer, I’m afraid, is not really. Except… is it? In a way, it’s a good thing as even just being exposed to ES is a great start in being able to read and understand code written by other developers. Plus, if I end up picking a few things out of the bunch that I decide to use, even if it’s just let and const (but definitely not arrow functions), am I better off? Perhaps.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Notes/Comments:” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]

My Free Code Camp Product Landing Page

So, I finally changed my mind about ‘spaghetti and meatballs’ being the theme for my product page.

I didn’t venture too far from my original path, though, as I have now decided it be a conceptual product called “Dream Cupcakes”, which are essentially gluten free, low sugar cupcakes. My sister-in-law is gluten intolerant and my husband’s step-mother is extremely sensitive to most sugars, so I am often thinking about new ways to make desserts that are gluten-free and low in added sugar. I have yet to concoct the perfect recipe, but I know it’s out there somewhere. Dream Cakes, theoretically, are exactly that.

Dream Cakes Logo

I have added the logo and started modifying the page, but there is still a lot left to be done. My plan is to work on the new product site tomorrow. I don’t think I will be doing anything else with JavaScript ES6 for now, so I am hoping to get the entire page finished tomorrow or Wednesday morning at the latest. I’m already ready to move on to the next project.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
