November 1st, 2017

A dear friend of mine is doing NaNoWriMo this year. I participated (and won!) last year, but I'm too busy this year to participate, with a four-month-old and school and client projects eating up my working time, and Stranger Things season 2 eating up my leisure time (hey, I'm only human).

Last month I mentioned the JS30 Challenge. So, to make up for not doing NaNo, I'm taking the thirty days of November to write some JavaScript. I already posted the link to my repo but I'm gonna link it again. For each day I'll create a new branch, complete the challenge, PR that branch against my forked copy's master, and then close the PR and delete the branch. This keeps the master branch clean, but lets me keep historical records of each of the coding assignments.

Day 1, today, was a JavaScript drum kit soundboard. It was a fun little assignment and though I doubt I'll find a use for the specifics of that project, the concept of linking keydown events to data- attributes in the DOM was pretty cool.

Here's to 29 more days of JS.
