Bitmaker Labs – Day 23

Javascript has arrived, and JS is not as beautiful as we thought it would be. Especially when coming from Ruby, it takes a bit to get a grasp on the new syntax. Let alone on the fact that all the beautiful methods you loved in Ruby are no longer available. Going from a world of .map and .each to for loops is depressing.

On the bright side though, because I’ve already learned Ruby, picking up JS isn’t as hard as I thought it would be. For now we’re only doing the basics, so: making variables, using methods on them, and learning about objects. Not bad at all.
