Transcript from the "Course Introduction" Lesson
[00:00:49] So we do it all and it's really cool. I've been learning a lot working there. I've been there for about six months now. Kind of diving into morale of the meta programming side of things, which has been very interesting. You can follow me on Twitter, @BiancaGando, it makes me feel popular if you do that.
[00:02:05] And we are going to practice those by using functional utility methods. And if you have no idea what that is yet, you'll learn all about them, and also implementing them. So not only will we be using them but we'll be implementing them. So then when you move onto your future courses or maybe you're picking up rxts or something like that.
[00:02:29] You will understand like how this stuff works under the hood and it will make you just a better developer in general. You'll be able to understand how this stuff works. You don't just trust in the magic, you understand the magic cuz you implemented it yourself, cool. Awesome, anyone surprised by this statement?
[00:02:52] No? We're good? Okay, good. Sometimes people come in with the wrong idea, awesome. But this is probably surprising, because this course is also about figuring out what happened to Mr. Body. Mr. Body is a millionaire tycoon who knows all the secrets of his friends. He threatened to exploit these secrets, and was murdered.
[00:03:29] So just a review, you're gonna strengthen your understanding of tricky jobs concepts. We're gonna be learning about functional utility methods. What are those? Have you ever heard of like, each, it's not super functional, but it's kinda the stepping stone map reduce, concat, things like that. Those are what I talk when I say functional utility methods that's what I mean.
[00:04:33] But we will be going into how some ES6 features effect things like objects, arrays, functions, and Things like that. Cool? And we'll also figure out, the murder mystery. That's the bonus. So a little more about expectations. I expect everyone here to be sincere, but not serious. I want to have fun.
[00:04:56] This is an interactive course. My style is very socratic. So expect for me to call on you. You may have warning ahead of time, you may not. So just know that now, maybe take a deep breath while you're digesting that. And this is important for all of us, right?
[00:05:15] It's not about embarrassing you, it's about getting a pulse of where we're all at, right? So we're here together, we're learning together as a team. And I wanna make sure that we're all getting to the same place, right? And if someone's left behind, that means that probably I messed up and I missed something.
[00:05:31] So, that's a part of it. But you do have a way out. I used to not, but I've gotten nicer in my old age. So either I'll ask you a question. Sometimes I'll warn you, sometimes I won't. But you have to be prepared either to answer it, or to ask me a question.
[00:05:51] So if you're terrified of me calling on you, just make sure that you note a question around every few slides, and then you'll be fine.
