No post in a while now, been learning some canvas, making an idiotic game for now, which I might as well release on my website, learning sprinting in JS canvas is kinda fun. Just got done with my homework and it’s 00:11(12:11 am for dummies) now. Still need to read the w3schools manual on the drawImage and other Image object methods to rotate images and for sprite animation.

I was just finishing a client’s project today and everything was jQuery based so I was literally forced to use jQuery. The funny part was I thought everything in a vanilla JS way, like how would I do this, how would I do that, but jQuery always surprised me by the predefined functions, everytime. There’s always something you need which is much more easier and faster than JS, like event delegation, cloning of an element, prepending element’s, etc.

Which is great considering all the other hosts out there pretty much summing it upto around 3k-4k a year. For blogposts from time to time this will do. Continue reading..
