Headstart into Javascript

I thought I'd better get a headstart into coding before I go into the course. Who knows how fast we would have to to learn stuff, and I certainly do not want to be left behind with my limited knowledge. Thanks to the wonderful Codecademy, I have learned quite a bit in the past few days. Enough to create a *drumrollplease* Rock, Paper, Scissors game! Okay, okay it is pretty simple but its exciting that I was able to code something! I'll be looking forward to gaining the knowledge to create something more practical though~

Take a look at Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock! [link]
Nothing special at the moment, except that it works~ Hopefully I will learn how to integrate this with HTML and CSS soon, so it will be nice to look at as well haha.

It's a five gesture equivalent of the original game. You may recognise this as the one Sheldon (The Big Bang Theory) would rather play. It was invented by Sam Kass and Karen Bryla, but under the name of "Rock, Paper, Scissors, Spock, Lizard"

It feels good to power-up my logical left brain to do things. It's been a while, and it it feels right. To study and write down notes to remember things to make things work. And its fun! Sure, a bit frustrating when you can't figure out what the problem was, but once its solved, oh what a magical feeling it is~ *shot*


  1. Coding master-in-training, you are! I think my brain has long given up on such activities in favour of boring science things...

  2. Well, I sure hope I'll get close :P Science ain't that boring!
