Disclaimer: This article intends to be a primer so that you may gain insight in order to understand beginner OOP articles better (for example on wikipedia). In order to grasp more abstract concepts, suspend as much logic as you would when watching Star Trek. Message not sponsored by anyone I know. Some neurons dissipated during the writing of this.
Recently I did a small workshop at a local uni for comp sci students on getting started with AR using the tracking.js library to build a SnapChat clone. Browser compatibility: Works with Chrome and IE (yikes but yes!) Laptop/Processing power: Glitchy on i4 and lower. Looks beautiful on the newer Mac’s and Microsoft Surface Pro

This is the 3rd code worksheet in a series of: “As long as they work and I’m getting results”. This worksheet features For Loops. While coding is a pretty hands on activity, reading is probably the most under-rated part of coding! Which is part of what I’m trying to do here with the worksheets, present bite sized information for scrumptious and easier consumption to the
For the coding bootcamp where I’m currently an instructor, I decided to create coding worksheets as a quick way to introduce a concept and it’s related syntax before getting into logic. It’s easier for a person learning to get familiar with structure and syntax before getting into the nitty gritty of implementing it a logical part of a bigger codebase/project.
So at the coding bootcamp I did a bit of explaining the concept of var flag/count as a way to track the state of an application. What seems intuitive now, wasn’t always so. I created a “Kanye Says” coding worksheet to explain the concept of true/false, on/off state in code, by using the example of a light bulb that is switched on and off. Any
