Coursework

1) Classwork#

Firstly, complete any exercises you did not complete during class. They are essential practice for the rest of the homework tasks.

If you get stuck, reach out to your classmates on Slack for help!

2) Watch these videos (1 hours)#

There are some really amazing videos online that explain some of the harder topics that we learnt this week.

I'd like you to search online around these topics

  • Asynchronous vs Synchronous
  • What is a JavaScript callback?
  • Client-Server Architecture

Here are some to get started: Synchronous and Asynchronous Transmission https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLjjgjp2bAA

The Client Server Model | Clients and Servers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5BlpPU_muY

How the Internet Works in 5 Minutes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_LPdttKXPc

Be sure to share what you find in your class channel!

3) JavaScript Challenges (14 hours)#

Here are a set of exercise that will help you to solidify your knowledge of JavaScript.

For this step, you have three challenges to complete.

  • Alarm Clock
  • Quote Generator
  • Slideshow

Each of these challenges could take you some time to complete

You can find them all in this repository

Before you start, make sure you fork the repository to your Github account.

4) Give feedback on your colleague's coursework (1 hour)#

Use what you learned in this lesson to give feedback to other trainees who have submitted their coursework.

Helping to give feedback on other peoples coursework doesn't only help them, it also helps you by reading a variety of different code.

You must
