Latin Root of the week

- Kinetic typography – the technical name for “moving text” – is an animation technique mixing motion and text.
- Conditional Statements in programming allow the code to do something based on a condition – if this, do this. A conditional statement we used was an if statement that tested the counting variable value in our rotating gallery project.
- In programming a variable is a container of information. There are many different types of information that can be stored in a variable:
- string – “123Abc”
- integer – 4
- float – 3.14
- boolean – true or false
- A function in programming is a named section of your code that does something specific. This function is first defined, and then can be called over and over without having to re-write the function which saves programmers time.
- variableName++ will increase a variable by 1. variableName– will decrease a variable by 1.
- HTML input type of “text” will create a text field to collect user input.
- HTML input type of “password” will create a text field to collect user input and be masked with symbols instead of your input. This is very low level security, but effective.
- console.log() allows Web Developers to test their code by outputting to the console of the web browser. This will not show up on the screen, and is used for development and testing. This is similar to “Print String” in Blueprints of Unreal Engine.
