Eloquent JavaScript and THAT Chapter

“goonies never say die, me on the other hand…”

So Im feeling like the definition of “spoke too soon” right now…

Just as just I released the previous blog raving about how good Eloquent JavaScript is, I came across Chapter 6 and the infamous “Laying Out a Table”.

This wasn’t fun.

Its a very complicated description about how to use JS to create a table script that has an even more complicated JavaScript program to follow along with. After staring at it for about 10 minutes, I picked up my jaw and started looking online for help. Luckily enough i found another blog post that I wanted to share: http://tomi.io/eloquent-javascript-laying-out-a-table/

Whilst this post doesn’t go over the actual problem itself, it does give you a very in depth explanation of what is actually happening, and you will be the better for it. Just remember to go slow and understand what you are learning.

Id thoroughly recommend you having a look at it when you get to Chapter 6.

Back to it.

  1. Thanks for the great tips! I do have a question however that I think you could probably answer.
    I was wondering, What programming languages should
    I learn for web development? My goal is to build a text based game online.
    I have never coded before. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

    • Hey buddy,
      I’d say just basic html, css and java script are all you would really need for a text based game.
      All the lessons for that would be available on free code camp.com, give it a whirl and good luck!
