Back to improving my JavaScript skills.

Understanding JavaScript in the Browser

Today’s goal is to get myself educated on how JavaScript works in the browser. Seems that things have changed in the last ten or so years. The morning was spent learning when scripts are run during the document load process. After lunch I dove into how to update state based on search parameters. Finished up with document event handling. The sample application looks like a 1999 website, I am not aiming for pretty at this point.

I had to switch to Linux, I just need a simple web server for testing. Node fits that bill. Adding features to Windows is a huge pain in the ass. I am so happy that I can work on a Linux system at home.
