http://learningnerd.github.io/30DaysOfWebDev/day24/

I did way too much reading, not enough coding. Oops. So this is what I started with, but then I basically passed out on the couch early last night before I could go back and work on it more. Eh, better than nothing at all.

It works! Sort of. A little bit. In any case, I think this ship has sailed. =P Time to move away from the Battleship game and onto all the other stuff I want to learn about next.

+Craig Laparo Your code was still very helpful! I don't have much experience reading other people's code or doing pull requests and stuff on GitHub so it was a good learning experience for me :) And maybe one day I'll come back to this project and review it all in more detail. (I'm laying it to rest for at least the rest of April, though.)

30 Days of Web Dev >> Day 17: Basic Battleship Completed!
http://learningnerd.github.io/30DaysOfWebDev/day17/

There's a lot more I could add next, but all the basic features are done! When I look back to last week, I realize just how much I've been learning! And I'm not even bored of it yet! ;) Maybe my plan to switch careers from communications/writing/PR to web or software development isn't so crazy after all. Because I'm having so much fun with this!!

Liz is correct. The game goes back further back when it was called "Salvo." It seems that all the rules allowed for two or more ships to be adjacent to each other.

30 Days of Web Dev >> Day 14: Recursive Randomness
http://learningnerd.github.io/30DaysOfWebDev/day14/

Watching a set of rules take on a life of its own is a strange and beautiful thing. Randomly placing ships of different sizes on my battleship board was hard! I ended up writing a recursive function, and the strangest thing about it is that recursion seemed to be the most intuitive solution, even though I'm not sure I've ever done it before.

I put a lot more time into today's project, more than the last couple days combined. Despite the increased frustration, the extra momentum makes me want to put even more time into it. Because it's also a lot of fun!

Stephen Hawking Sings Monty Python Galaxy Song

"The song, which is the title track to “Monty Python – The Meaning of Live”, was originally written for the 1983 film, “Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life”. It has been re-recorded with the lyrics sung by Professor Stephen Hawking."

"Written by Eric Idle and John Du Prez, the song is an intricate and informative lecture on the enormity of the Universe fashioned into a bewitching and, above all, highly amusing pop song."

http://learningnerd.github.io/30DaysOfWebDev/day25/

Today I finally figured out how to install and use Jekyll, a static site generator! It doesn't play so nicely with Windows, so I did bang my head on my desk a few times. But now it works!

There's still much more I could work on with this, but now I'm finally going to call it finished. At least for now. I have lots of web design stuff to learn if I want to start finding people to pay me to make websites for them!

I didn't have time to make a GIF today and the algorithm isn't done yet, but hey at least I learned some stuff and had fun! Today was also my first day working part-time at my day job instead of full-time -- a change I made so that I can learn more and see if I have what it takes to do freelance web development. :) It's exciting and terrifying!

+Liz Krane Both algorithms will produce a random selection from all valid starting cells. However, my algorithm does not specifically identify all the valid starting starting cells to get there. It goes from general to specific. First it identifies and randomly picks from the valid sections, and then it randomly selects the starting square within the one selected section.

It's far from done, but it basically works now! One of the next things I want to try to figure out is how to determine with certainty whether another ship can fit on the board or not. Just seems like an interesting problem. :)

+Liz Krane oops, missed that question. Sry. I've played this since 40 years ago, and we never allowed touch ships. But like with some programming problems: Either change it or document it: It took me a while to find the ship in the impossible situation. Common was, that diagonal contacts were allowed, though I prefered to forbid even that :-)

These Battle Ship ones are interesting because they are progressing on the theme. It's fun. I wish I had the time to go through these lessons.

Introduction
Hiyas! I'm about 0.04% done with my goal to learn everything there is to learn. Almost there! =P


Some of my current interests (meaning you can send me links on these topics and I'd go "eeee!"):

~~~~~~~~~~  Computer science / Programming  ~~~~~~~~~

Web development, Android development, creating productivity tools, body computing, G+ hangouts API

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Education  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Free learning resources, social learning / education 2.0 / other buzzwords, educational video games, STEM education, all sorts of alternative education (homeschooling, unschooling), autodidacticism, polymathy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Art and Design 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Web design, photography, videography, video editing, graphic design, typography, making bad drawings

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Math and Science  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Right now I'm particularly interested in the fundamentals of math, how the brain understands it (numerical cognition), and how I should go about relearning it and actually liking it

To sum it up: let's exchange knowledge! :) I'm here to soak up as much as I can. Mmmm knooowwledge...

I'm also here to meet interesting people and make friends. I'll circle you if you post interesting things, especially things I can learn from! I'm also much more likely to circle you if you have some information about yourself in your profile.
