My First JQuery Only App : Tic Tac Toe Emoji!

Hi everyone !!

My name is Charles and I am so excited because this is my first post on! I have been looking for something to write about for millenniums and finally I have something!!

A little bit about me, I am a 23 years old programmer originally from Cote D'Ivoire, Africa who came to the United States in 2015 to pursue an Associate's Degree in Computer Information Systems. I have graduated May 2018 and have been working at Delaware Tech Community College (my school) for about 2 years now as the Computer Information Systems tutor.

Now let's talk about the good stuff: Tic Tac Toe

This project came into existence because I have been trying to build something with Jquery but was too scared to start (why ? you tell me). I've been working on my skills as a programmer for the past 5 years first learning Android but in the past year I have decided to sharpen my skills in frontend and backend development. My first experience with web development was with Vue and I fell in love with it from the beginning. I always shy away from Jquery because it looked intimidating but I knew I had to learn how to make web apps without a 'framework'. Frameworks come and go but HTML, JS and CSS won't and Jquery being the go to library for vanilla JavaScript won't either.

That's why I decided to build something simple that doesn't require too much work but will help me get better working with Jquery

This is a basic Tic Tac Toe app that I built yesterday night. We are using the laughing emoji for player 1 and the angry emoji for player 2. The first player to get a row wins

I am planning making it look better with CSS and reorganize some of the code but for now it works for me.

The project is available on Github and a live version is available here

Feel free to look at it and give me some feedback :)

Thank you and have fun playing :)
