  1. In Topic: Cannot understand how I am doing this wrong

    Posted 17 Sep 2014

    One thing I do to avoid this missing brackets is to do one step at a time. For example,

    Create function as a variable.
    var nameString = function(){};
    
    


    Now we have a variable called nameString that is holding a function.
    Next we will allow the argument name to be passed to the function nameString.

    var nameString = function(name){};
    
    


    Now that we have a function that can accept an argument we need to do something with it.

    var nameString = function(name){
        //Return the argument back in the form of a string
        return ("Hi, I am" + " " + name);
    };
    
    


    No we have a working function we can call with a string argument.

    nameString("Shane");
    
    


    This will call the function and your string will be returned from the function. This works fine, but in order to see it codecademy wants you to use the log function from the console object.


    console.log(nameString("Shane"));
    
    



    I hope this helps a little.
  2. In Topic: Teaching Yourself JavaScript

    Posted 16 Sep 2014

    These are a great place to get some JS on.

    javascript.info
    Codecademy
    Codeschool

    These are just a few places I used to get my bearings on JS. We also have some great disscussions that may help, here is one on books for js. Have a search for [discussion] and look through the list for some related to Javascript.

    Also if you are having trouble understanding a concept come back and start a discussion of your own, just be sure to read "What have you tried?" before you post a question or discussion.

    Good luck

    Someone once told me "There are no friends in business" I find this to be true in all markets. When money is involved, many will squirrel to get the upper-hand. Be smart and cover your backside next time.

    Also, remember that if you make changes and it still does not work, you need to go back to your console for errors. This will help you to realize what is causing the issue so you can begin to fix it.
  5. In Topic: Populating table then saving with Javascript

    Posted 10 Sep 2014

    This is not the way to do this but, look into local storage and cookies.


    I would suggest that you use a server side language to interact with a database though. much better way of going about this.
