I’ve been in beautiful California doing fun things, hence no blogging. I’ve been doing small chunks of the Intro to Javascript course, though, and am now on section 13 out of the 22.

Finally have been introduced to the DOM and what it is – and am amused to know that it has such an un-interesting actual name.

THE DOM to me sounds like something out of The Godfather, or perhaps 50 Shades of Grey.

Feel like I am getting a bit of a grasp on objects, properties, functions, etc. It’s all felt very theoretical though, so getting to really put it into action will be nice and hopefully make it feel more real. This article – Why You Learn the Most When you Feel like You’re Struggling as a Developer – has been helpful today. I’m also taking a freebie webinar by General Assembly on Introduction to Javascript soon – I always think that additional ways of looking at something I’m learning is a great way (usually) to get more insight.

Until them, back into THE DOM (said as dramatically as possible).
