Project: Use the API (Part 2)

Welcome back to Part 2 of my Twitch API project walk-through.

You can find Part 1, where I discuss the project objectives and some of the initial challenges I encountered, by clicking here.

I mentioned in Part 1, that the project now requires a workaround to access the Twitch API data. Because of that, there are very few resources available for the project in its current form.

With that in mind, I thought I would take a deep-dive into the JavaScript part of the program. Hopefully, this will help other people avoid some of the issues I ran into.

Project: Use the API (Part 1)

I recently completed the last intermediate project in freeCodeCamp’s Front End Developer Certification. The project required building an application using the Twitch API.

Since so many people use freeCodeCamp (fCC), I thought I would share what went into creating the app and some of the challenges I ran into along the way.

Spoiler alert: there were a lot of challenges in this one.

Project: Build a Personal Portfolio Page

One of the best things about learning to code is working on projects. Not only is this a great way to learn but it is also a lot of fun.

I recently completed the second project in the freeCodeCamp Front End Developer course, which is to build a Personal Portfolio page.

Originally, I started to work on this project shortly after I finished my Tribute project┬áback in October. I had a vision of what I wanted the page to look like but I didn’t have the knowledge necessary at that time to bring that vision to life.
