Code

I watched a second video by MPJ — on Functional Programming (1 in a series of 6). I was initially going to watch his video on Factory Functions, but he recommended that the video on Closures be watched first (which is video 5 in the Functional Programming series, so I decided to watch the whole series).

It was really good — very clear, and the main line that has stuck in my head is that:

Functions are values.

I’m going to start a repo on GitHub, where I will make notes on all the videos I watch — I will write them here in Ulysses (which I would do anyway), copy the markdown into .md files, and also write the code in .js files (so I can just copy and paste them into Ulysses) — and keep it all organised in that repo!

zsh

I changed my shell to zsh from bash!

This was a particularly helpful tutorial:

I then also installed oh-my-zsh: http://ohmyz.sh/

And then I installed the bullet train theme: https://github.com/caiogondim/bullet-train-oh-my-zsh-theme

There are still a few problems (I think there are missing glyphs, because I’m getting some ? in the prompt, and there is no nice arrow edge to the prompt bar, but it’s a start!
