Having fun with APIs

I finished up a fun ☀️ weather app yesterday! I wrote asynchronous JavaScript functions as well as fetch, await, try, and catch to make it all work.

I decided to render the current date and time for the chosen location. This presented some challenges in plain JavaScript! 😅 I used the Date object and methods but it also required some additional math, processing, and manipulating! I’m really happy with how the whole app turned out, including the CSS styling. 🤩

Something that I’m finding more difficult as the projects get more complex is organizing my code. I’m currently reading Clean Code by Robert Martin for an online book club I’m in. I’ve already taken away lots of great tips that I’m incorporating into my code.

Tomorrow I’m diving into TDD – Test Driven Development – with Jest. ✌️
