Hacktoberfest and Me.

What I Learned From Hacktoberfest

Hacktoberfest has really been good for me. This is not the first time I've contributed to open-source but this is the time I can say I truly understand open source and contributed much. My main target was learning to write test and I can say I accomplished that. I spent time with the Jest docs and I applied them to TheAlgorithms/Javascript repo, A repository for algorithms in JavaScript.

Add tests to Math #423

Welcome to JavaScript community

Describe your change:

  • [x] Add tests

  • [x] Fix a bug or typo in an existing algorithm?
  • [ ] Documentation change?

Checklist:

  • [x] I have read CONTRIBUTING.md.
  • [x] This pull request is all my own work -- I have not plagiarized.
  • [x] I know that pull requests will not be merged if they fail the automated tests.
  • [ ] This PR only changes one algorithm file. To ease review, please open separate PRs for separate algorithms.
  • [x] All new JavaScript files are placed inside an existing directory.
  • [x] All filenames should use the UpperCamelCase (PascalCase) style. There should be no spaces in filenames. Example:UserProfile.js is allowed but userprofile.js,Userprofile.js,user-Profile.js,userProfile.js are not
  • [ ] All new algorithms have a URL in its comments that points to Wikipedia or other similar explanation.
  • [ ] If this pull request resolves one or more open issues then the commit message contains Fixes: #{$ISSUE_NO}.

Also, I made some typo corrections to the New Nodejs Learning guide, nodejs.dev. I was reading it and I contributed to it. The project is stable to me, but there are more features to be implemented and I want to help with that.

Minor Typo Fixes #945

Description

Small typo fixes in the documentation.

And finally added some utility functions to 30secondsofcode.org. Some where removed but not all and the pull was merged.

Add isNode, randomIpAddress and isRegularExpression #1526

Function to check if the environment is node Function to generate a random Ip Address. Function to check for Regular Expressions

Thank you Open Source, Thank you Hacktoberfest. I want to contribute to more open source.
