  • 26:58 Our podcast editor, Aaron Dowd, started a podcast to help you learn how to podcast.
  • 28:21 I work at a company where I sometimes create small Javascript games for social media campaigns. I find it hard to code interactive things that support both mouse events and touch events. I haven’t found any good libraries that can help me with this. Any suggestions?
  • 35:41 How fluent do I need to be at JavaScript before identifying as a Front End Developer?
  • 43:02 I’ve got a question about Github/Open Source etiquette. I built a simple javascript module for creating resizable containers and open sourced it on Github. This is my first legit open source project, and I’ve had a positive response from the community. It’s been fun and rewarding seeing people modify my code and use it in their own projects. That said, I have a pull request that makes some great changes, but it also has some changes that I’d rather omit. Is there a “correct” way to merge PART of their code while still giving them credit?
  • 53:13 I am currently in the navy as an aviation electronics technician. I am separating form the navy and plan to go to jr. college in the fall. Over the years I’ve developed a fascination over A.I./machine learning, however I originally joined the navy to use the G.I. bill to go to school for graphic design / web design. If I learn web design during school, would that knowledge benefit towards skills used for A.I., or would it be time better spent learning the languages needed for A.I.?
