Unit 5 - Addendum

I have made modification before and during Unit 6 on my JavaScript code an added 2 games related to my website theme. It uses a game of dice and a game of rock paper scissors to create a promo code for the user to use on companies products that the website will review.

 I used pure JavaScript. I realize that, in unit 5 I jumped into the coding right away without enough knowledge of the syntax. Having knowledge of Java doesn't determine competency in JavaScript syntax. 

 After thorough studies into the w3schools website and some JavaScript documentation I was able to implement 2 games using only JavaScript. I also took the opportunity to clean up my code there were div container inside div bodies that were unnecessary. 

 I also took the time to comment my code as much as possible and restructured the code in a way that it will be better suited for future maintenance. It was necessary as I will implement new features later and wish to be able to easily read the code and understand what is where.

 It is imperative to learn the syntax well, even if you have previous experience in programming. Do not let your pride confuse you as I did. 

 Well, now I feel better about my website.
