Hello everyone! Let's use this thread to get to know each other. Just say hi and a few words about who you are, maybe what are you building or learning with Repl.it.

If you're not comfortable sharing anything then share something fun 😉

@theangryepicbanana, @CyanCoding Same here. I also had the false "I know JavaScript!" mindset ;). I didn't even know what the difference was between an integer and a float, nor did I know the proper way to define a function...

Speaking of which, KA teaches some bad practices, such as using the following to define a function:

var myFunction = function(parameter1, parameter2) {
    //code
}

As opposed to

function myFunction(parameter1, parameter2) {
    //code
}

Khan Academy is a good start for programmers, but once you really get going (building websites and such) you realize that you need to change your ways.

Aaaaand I'm rambling on and on and I should probably just hit the "comment" button already.

P.S. The site I linked to is, in fact, the site that I built awhile ago :). Kinda bad tho
