100 Days of Code: Day 42

Home / Technology / Web Development / 100 Days of Code: Day 42
Today I played around with regular expressions a little more, explored JavaScript debugging, and started watching some CSS short videos to keep it fresh in my mind as I continue working with JavaScript. All in all, it has been a very successful day.

I wasn’t satisfied with one of my answers (the last one), so I spent a bit of time playing around with the different possibilities using the regexr website/tool. Through trial and error, testing and retesting, I discovered several possible solutions.

While I have no intention of sharing them all here, I do want to say that regular expressions are the perfect example of how coding generally works. There are different ways to do things, some of them better than others, and you never know what you might discover by practicing and playing around. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty (metaphorically, of course. That dirt will not come out of the keyboard, ever.)

Once I was satisfied with my current understanding of regular expressions, I moved on to debugging in JavaScript. This is, fortunately, something that I have done before, in JavaScript as well as other languages, plus it was studied in-depth while working on my Master’s Degree. Still, I took a ton of notes and I will, as with the past few things, review them in a few weeks. It’s more about developing the habit than actually needing to review the material, to be honest. It can’t hurt, though![/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”The Bad:” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]It’s hot and I have allergies. That’s reason enough to be frustrated. Fortunately, it has absolutely nothing to do with coding.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
