FCC Speedrun — Simon Game
If you don’t know what FCC Speedrun is — here is a link to a GitHub repo.
To me this was the most challenging frontend project both this time and the first time when I did it.
Before FCC I’ve never heard of the Simon Game, I’ve never seen a physical device and hence I’ve never played one (and I can’t imagine playing one as a child — it seems so boring and dull 😒).
Anyway, this project comparing to all the previous ones is a huge jump in complexity — here you need to manage AI, play audio and handle user interaction. Doing it in React didn’t make it easier. Having no interest in finished product was also a huge de-motivator.
In the end I decided to go through user stories step-by-step and just append the relevant code to the app. Final result — bunch of spaghetti code which I’m afraid to touch 😒.
But I’m happy that I pushed through and didn’t give up.
Next on to the Data Viz challenges 😀.
My progress in the Speedrun thus far:
- Tribute Page
- Random Quote Machine
- Show the Local Weather
- Wikipedia Viewer
- Twitch Client
- Pomodoro Clock
- Tic Tac Toe
Thank you for your attention and happy coding 🤓
