Percussionist to Progammer v1.4.1
Today was not the best day I’ve had at The Iron Yard. It wasn’t bad, but it moved at a slower pace today. I think part of it was because it was a Monday, and also because we started AJAX today, which is (sort of) a completely different concept than the JS we’ve been studying.
The weirdest thing I learned today was the idea of the Promise constructor and its ‘then’ method. The idea that whatever is returned from a then method is passed to the next one was strange and difficult for me to grasp at first. I think I understand it now, but I need to put it into practice to really get it down.
Tonight (assuming I don’t fall asleep before then) I’m going to learn about user authentication, which involves someone logging in with a username and password. This is a topic I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time, and I can’t wait to implement into some of my projects.
That’s all for now. Short post tonight…
I thought of a programmer joke today while learning about AJAX. Why did the JSON data not want to be parsed?
It didn’t want to be objectified!
