Part 4: Object Oriented #javascript. 👍
-
ES6 syntax allows for clean and simple addition of methods to a class. Under the hood of this class syntax, it creates a prototype method accessible to all new instances of this class.
-
Quick and simple! 🙃


Part 3: Object Oriented #javascript.
Another way of adding a method to a constructor in ES5 is to use a prototype. -
The difference here is that you can specify which new instances will inherit this method. Really neat. 😊
-
What are your thoughts on adding a method via prototype v. inside a constructor?

Part 3: When not to use #javascript arrow functions 🤔
-
Arrow function cannot be used as a constructor by default. #js will throw a “TypeError: … is not a constructor”.
-
Instead, you have to use a function declaration or expression to create constructors. ☀️

I have been getting questions about how to get emojis in your text editor. So I made a tutorial about installing and setting up emojis in #vscode . Check it out when you have 2 mins to spare 😊 and upgrade your editor.

When Not to use #javascript arrow functions?
-
Although for the most part, arrow functions bring a lot of new features to #js, there are always two sides to the medal.
-
When defining methods on an object prototype, you have to watch for the scope of “this” keyword. -
When using an arrow function in such instance, the “this” is scoped to the window object. Therefore, making your method on an object seem as “undefined”.
-
In this case, it is better to use good ol’ function expression.

What questions do you have about javascript/html/css?

First club meeting is next Wednesday, January 16 at 4:00PM – we’ve still got plenty of space :D

Want to learn how to build an app, design a video game and change the world through code? Join the library’s Girls Who Code Club! For anyone who identifies as a girl, ages 13-18. 

Contact the Teen Room, 617-349-4027 to sign-up. Registration is required.

#javascript destcructuring allows you to unpack values from arrays, as well as properties from objects.
-
With arrays, it will save you a lot of time accessing variables. Especially, if your arrays are deeply nested.

Thoughts on Plans and Goals

From what I have learned so far in my life, I think it is hard to have a set plan because life never goes according to your plans (at least, mine doesn’t anyway). For example, in the beginning of this year, I never planned to speak at a tech conference, participate in a mob programming event on stage at a tech conference, or even share about my personal experiences and trauma to strangers. I never planned to be single, and end my four year relationship with my partner. That was never in my plan. And so many other things that happened this year weren’t what I envisioned. Nevertheless, I think, in general, it’s good to have an idea of what you want and maybe reframe “plans” to be something you hope to happen but know well that it may not (because that is just the way life is!).

So, this post is dedicated to my “plans” (aka, things I want to do or hope to do, but will accept if it doesn’t happen the way I envision it to)

+ I would like to volunteer and code for good. In other words, I would like to use my programming knowledge to help contribute to an application or something similar for free.
+ I would like to be consistent in my workouts and gain physical strength
+ I would like to continue with therapy and get in touch with my traumatic past and try to understand it more and heal from it
+ I would like to continue documenting my thoughts and progress about what I am doing at work as a software engineer
+ I would like to read more books by women and people of color (I’ll just throw out I want to read, at minimum, 3 non-fiction books, 1 technical book, and 1 fiction book)

2019, 


I’m going to greet you in the same way I did December.

With a heart that is palpably open.

I promise to keep my heart open for as long as you’re here.

I’m poised on the line, waiting for your arrival.

I don’t know what sort of magic you’ll bring me.

I just know that whatever it is … it will be magic.

Yet, I’m unafraid.

And I promise, I’m wearing no armour.

I’m open. I’m defenceless. And I’m so, so happy.

2019, I love you already.

See you soon.

No Selfie Saturday

So, no selfie today. I meant to take one, Ince today was my first outing in leggings. Oh, well. It won’t be the last. I’ll get a picture next time.

I’ve spent my evening hanging out with my eldest watching a movie, then talking code. Once he was safely tucked away for the night, I’ve alternated between coding and poetry. 

I’ve got a really simple app that I need, but that doesn’t seem to exist, so I’m building it. The poem is just that poem I’ve posted a couple of times already I want to make one more try at getting it as good as I can. I alternate between feeling like it’s garbage, and thinking it has potential.

I hope everyone’s having (or had) a good Saturday night.

I don’t know why I am SO CODEY today, but doing the responsive design project PLUS all of the JS OOP lessons apparently wasn’t enough for me, because I just returned to CS50 and completed the next pset problem, “Cash”. That was exhausting. I love how this course really works my brain. I have GOT to stop coding for tonight though, jeez. Gonna burn out at this rate.

Standstill x2 I haven’t really been able to get anything done related to coding because I’ve been working and I’ve been tried to get some reading done for university. However, recently I’ve been wanted to get back into it so I’ve set myself a goal.

The goal: Complete all my university reading (I only have a couple more sections to complete) then once that is all done look back at all the coding missions I’ve had from #CNC2018

I have also planned on starting a bullet journal of all my coding updates just so I’d have more of a reason to complete them so I can make the journal look nice!
