Here is the first tutorial in this section. It shows two techniques for computing a fibonacci sequence given two starting numbers and how long you want the sequence to be.
So this begs the question, how to get started? Well, as mentioned there are several books published about the subject, and I will be reviewing some of those in the future. But I think a great first step is to really understand some of the methods of the Array object. These methods were designed around functional programming concepts. For example, map, forEach, every and reduce are a few that are valuable to understand. And it just so happens we have a tutorial on some of those methods.
I just completed two tutorials on exception handling. The first shows how to use try catch statements in your code. The second talks about when you should and should not use try catch.
Take a look at both videos and if you have any additional rules to add for using try catch statements post them here.
I love the word obfuscation. It seems to reflect its own definition. To obfuscate something is to make it difficult to understand.
Now I find that a lot of my debugging is done with the console. At times I will open up the debugger, but for most things, I can figure it out pretty quickly using the console.
Over the years I have learned a few console commands that are very helpful. I know I would have loved to have these commands when I started out, so I put together a tutorial on some of the lesser known console commands. I think these can help you find a resolution faster.
Many years ago when I started my university studies (more than I would like to think), I elected as my major computer science. I stuck with that major for about 2 semesters and then switched to English. Many people thought it was a drastic switch; from one side of the spectrum to the other. Two majors that are not even closely related.
However, I considered both majors similar. I discovered that the reason I enjoyed English during my undergraduate studies is because I enjoy expressing myself with language. (Now, I may not be that great at it, but I still enjoy it.) I also enjoy seeing (reading) how others express themselves with language.
Well, in that sense I see many similarities between programming and writing. In programming you need to use the syntax and semantics of the language to express what you are trying to accomplish. You not only have to communicate to the computer, but you also need to communicate to other programmers that will need to read and understand your code.
