Treehouse is Some Kind of Special

Reading time: 3 mins

Create

I am building all kinds of things! Learning Loops, Arrays, and Objects now that I finished the JavaScript Basics course in 5 days. I have 6 badges and looking to get more and more, as quickly as possible.

Look out for a podcast soon on Treehouse, tomorrow or later today.

Check out this Pen I made from a Treehouse challenge. Did it for my writer friends. In order not to annoy you with alerts, I chose JavaScript to be the default tab in the Pen. Click the result tab to play:

 

[codepen_embed height=”268” theme_id=”0” slug_hash=”oXadEd” default_tab=”js” user=”twhite96”] // quiz begins, no answers correct var correct = 0;

// ask questions

var answer1 = prompt("This character wound up in 12 of Ernest Hemingway's short stories."); if (answer1.toUpperCase() === 'NICK ADAMS') { correct += 1; } var answer2 = prompt("Who wrote Uylsses?"); if (answer2.toUpperCase() === 'JAMES JOYCE') { correct += 1; } var answer3 = prompt("This author wrote their best work in a collection of stories called Cathedral."); if (answer3.toUpperCase() === 'RAY CARVER' || answer3.toUpperCase === 'RAYMOND CARVER') { correct += 1; } var answer4 = prompt("She wrote In the Cemetery Where Al Jolson is Buried."); if (answer4.toUpperCase() === 'AMY HEMPEL') { correct += 1; } var answer5 = prompt("This writer drowned themselves in the river after filling her pockets with rocks in 1941"); if (answer5.toUpperCase() === 'VIRGINIA WOOLF') { correct += 1; }

// outputs results alert("You got " + correct + " out of 5 questions correct.");

// outputs rank if (correct === 5) { alert("You won a gold Pulitzer wrapped in diamonds!"); } else if (correct >= 3) { alert("You won the MacArthur Fellowship. Not bad."); } else if (correct >= 1) { alert("You made the Amazon Best Seller list for some niche genre. Not bad. Not good either.") } else { alert("You are a flash fiction writer with no credits. Sucks to be you!"); }

No Ads. No Sponsored Content. Ever.

I've decided that I no longer want to have sponsored posts on this blog. I also, though as tempting as it may sound, don't want ads; even if I got big enough for Carbon ads I don't want them. I want to post free, engaging content for beginning/junior devs. This means that I won't have Setapp posts or affiliates on this blog, though I will keep them on the Uses page.
