1. In my mind, I think of the DOM as the structure of the code. It contains all the different elements and how they interact with each other across files.
  2. One thing that really surprised me about coding is how much I feel like I’ve been able to learn in such a short amount of time. I wouldn’t say anything is necessarily easy, but the easiest thing to me would be the html. The actual information that goes into the page is much easier for me than figuring out what it should look like. We just started on JavaScript and that is another beast. I was able to finish the calculator and tic tac toe projects for class with a ton of research, but still don’t feel like I understand it. I’m looking forward to getting more familiar with JavaScript though.
  3. The most difficult thing for me is that it is a completely new way of thinking. In order to get things to work, you have to really think about what you’re doing and how it will effect everything else on the project.
  4. I think it’s cool that you can assign multiple event listeners to a single element, but I’m having a hard time with JavaScript right now and still need to learn more about them.
  5. I am motivated by the opportunity to learn a new skill that is also very in demand. I’m in this class to get into a new career.
