My self-imposed Codecademy graduation exam
I’ve always wanted to teach myself how to code but never found good teaching material… until I found Codecademy.
My main complaint was that it is a little too structured. They guide you through the exercises step-by-step. So I wasn’t quite sure how I would do without the training wheels. Plus, I feared that if I didn’t use it right away, I’d lose everything I’d learned.
So I decided that the best way to prove to myself that I really did get it and to lock in everything I had learned was to come up with a challenge and that challenge was Minesweeper.
You remember Minesweeper. This addictive little game shipped with every version of Windows since Windows 3.1 came out in 1992. I shudder to think how much time that game sucked up….
So without further ado, here it is.
If you find bugs or have any feedback on how I coded this, I want to learn so please comment below.
Note: The (free) hosting service I am using is a bit slow so it may take a few seconds to generate your playing field. There’s probably a more efficient way to generate the playing field but this works… and that’s good enough for me. 🙂
Now on to JQuery….
