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
——–/———- work in progress ———-/——– ### Introduction 1. AJAX stands for async JS and XML. 2. Assists in communicating with a browser [receiving and sending data] after a page has loaded. 3. Remains a popular method of communicating with a server from the front end . 4. It enables the sending of data to the server, and receiving a response without the page reloading (think
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
Setting up a basic server with express.js 3.1 Introduction Express.js is a node.js framework and much of express.js is writing logic to handle GET/POST requests at different URI paths in your web app/site. As we’ve read up to now that data travels through HTTP request-response cycle from the browser to the server and back. Express.js allows you to create a web server and routes for
Introduction This will be a series of articles to explain express.js to noobs. Often technical articles tend to be too technical &&/|| too dry. The whole point is to get the point across without making the topic too simplistic, whilst not over complicating it. Most web development happens across teams so it’s worthwhile to have a bunch of resources to get up and running. These
