I went flying through Front End Development Certification right up until I hit the Intermediate Front End Development Projects and fell flat on my face.
My Problem? I couldn’t for the life of me, figure out how to hook up my “next quote” button to do anything. I kept getting “Unrecognized element $”
Because we never did any work in codepen.io using the JS tab, I had no idea how to wire things up, how to save any kind of state (or maybe know that I should not be trying to save state on a web page.)
I probably spent 6 hours today just trying to figure out how to do some kind of hello world, and I’m not expecting it to get any easier.
When I finally did find someone who could help he basically said, “Yeah, after the JSON APIs and Ajax section, they pretty much throw you into the deep end with no help.”
If anyone knows of some kind of tutorial for using the JS side of codepen.io, I would jump on it today and use it as a launching pad.
