Day 5 & 6
I have gotten stuck a few times with syntax errors. I see my improvement as I remember how to do certain things such as if/else statements and console.log.
Day 6 & 7
What does a 'syntax error' stand for?
Why does '//' make it not readable by the computer.
What does 'val' stand for?
Day 8 & 9
I am at around 20% through my project. I am mostly having trouble finding the syntax errors through out the code. I can fix the syntax error by going back through my completed levels where certain code were explained.
Day 10 & 11
I'm around 25% done with my project. My goal is to reach the end of the lesson 'Build "Rock, Paper, Scissors". It's proving to get harder, I tend to be able to find the syntax errors after around five minutes of searching. I am seeing improvement in myself and my coding ability.
I'm almost done with my project. I've decided to continue on to the lesson for loops. I continue to see myself improve.
Day 13 & 14
I'm starting to learn the for loop. It's almost like a counter so far for how I have used it. I can control where the loop ends and where it begins. I have learned how to skip count also.
Day 15 & 16
My next step is to finish with the section after loops. I have five more sections then I'm done with my project. Once I'm done I plan on going back and complete all the levels I skipped.
