Code Academy: This site is exactly what I was looking for! Code Academy allows you to learn code, type it and check it immediately to see if you’re correct. If you sign up, you can keep track of the progress badges you earn. There’s also a hint button and a forum if you get stuck. You can also learn a few other languages too, like jQuery, PHP, Python & Ruby.
Easy Calculator: One of my projects recently was to create a calculator, and this site, which has a plethora of codes, definitely helped me out. They have a directory and a search bar to help you find the exact code you’re looking for. Some of these are very simplified, so if you just need a starting point, use these and customize to your heart’s content.
On one of my assignments this week, I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to display a calculated result on the page after clicking a button. I had the code and calculations working perfectly; I just couldn’t get it to display. Now, I learned how to do an alert and a document.write, but the assignment called for it to display below the button on the same page. I searched the internet thinking I could find an easy fix, but after 2 days of searching: nothing. I finally caved in and asked my teacher, and he quickly fixed my issue. Notice the last line in the function that says “document.getInfo…”. That line then pointed to a text box at the end of the form field. So simple, yet I couldn’t figure it out.
