'Tis the season to be learning Javascript

Anybody who knows me knows how difficult it is for me to achieve the goals I set for myself. Unless there are strict deadlines with consequences, nothing gets done.

This, coupled with my love-hate relationship with Javascript after being in tutorial hell for so long, had me thinking I'm never gaining mastery in this language past what my job required.

This was the case until #javascriptmas made its way to my Twitter feed!

In the form of an advent calendar, Scrimba created fun Javascript and CSS challenges for every day leading up to Christmas. They have not only helped me feel less burnt out but also helped me feel a sense of achievement and consistency while reviewing essential Javascript properties.

The best part about completing the challenges is that for every submission, you get entered into a lottery for $1000 and a lifetime Scrimba subscription.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in checking out, feel free to head over to the Scrimba Advent Calendar. You can submit all solutions till Christmas eve to get your name into the raffle.

Here's a list of my solutions to the challenges but I recommend trying them yourself before you take a look -

Day 1: Candies

Day 2: Deposit Profit

Day 3: Chunky Monkey

Day 4: Century From Year

Day 5: Reverse A String

Day 6: Sort By Length

Day 7: Count Vowel Consonant with Regex / with if conditions

Day 8: Rolling Dice

Day 9: Sum Odd Fibonacci Numbers

Day 10: Adjacent Elements Product

Day 11: Avoid Obstacles

Day 12: Valid Time

Day 13: Extract Each Kth

Day 14: Maximal Adjacent Difference

Day 15: Javascript Carousel

Day 16: Insert Dashes

Day 17: Different Symbols Naive

Day 18: Array Previous Less

Day 19: Alphabet Subsequence

Day 20: Domain Type

Day 21: Sum of Two

Day 22: Extract matrix column

Hope you have just as fun solving these as I did!

Merry Javascriptmas!
