The DOM

Yesterday we learned about the DOM and manipulating html using JavaScript.  This was the most challenging concept we’ve learned so far.  Since we haven’t learned objects yet it was kind of confusing at first, but after some review and some practice it’s starting to make sense.  Our third weekly project is to build a calculator.  I’ve got the layout and styling done and all my buttons are functional.  I’m struggling with how to call the correct mathematical operation once the equal button is pressed.  Hopefully I can make some progress today.

Today we have a guest speaker.  I think it’s cool that they do this and I’m looking forward to hearing what someones daily activities look like and getting another perspective on things.
