After a two week Christmas break we’ve all assembled (no pun intended) again at hipster central to start the last seven weeks of our course. So nice to see everyone again!
On Monday afternoon we learnt how to listen to events in the browser and then make stuff happen when these events occur. Again, seemed relatively straight forward.
And then came the homework: MTA stations calculator! Uaaaaahhh… Michael had promised us that we’d never have to touch this project again. But Michael is skiing this week, so the TAs have taken over – and decided to torture us with this.
Today we did a code along in the morning where we created a cash register which adds up the amounts entered and displays each amount on an individual line. All without a browser refresh. Pretty cool!
I had some time during the explanations of the individual steps in class and decided to jazz up the plain grey and white CSS design and create a disco calculator. I like to amuse myself with those kinds of things sometimes.
Guy started showing us a whole lot of theory about it and then we went on to create a drop down navigation using jQuery.
No homework tonight because GA has organised a joint dinner for us and the UX students so that we can network (what I’m hearing: free food and booze!). Looking forward to it!
