For Each Lab

Objectives

  1. Practice using forEach
  2. Practice passing functions as callbacks

Instructions

You'll be editing index.js and running tests as usual.

  • Define a function, iterativeLog(), that accepts an array. Call .forEach() on this array, and inside the callback, log each element with the format ${index}: ${element}.
  • Define a function, iterate, that accepts a callback. Within the iterate() function, you should initialize an array. It can contain anything you want, but make sure that it is not empty! Call .forEach() on this array, passing the callback to .forEach(). Then return the array that you initialized.
  • Define a function, doToArray that accepts an array and a callback. Call .forEach() on the array, passing the callback as the forEach callback.

Remember, you can run the tests using mocha.run() in the browser if you'd like — then read the results, refresh the page, and keep going afterwards.

Note: If you're using the Learn IDE, this is how to use mocha.run():

  1. Type "httpserver" into your learn IDE console.
  2. Type the ip it gives you into your browser. (The ip will look something like this: 158.38.11.256:30615)
  3. Go to your browser's console and type mocha.run() and press .
  4. Any errors from your code will now appear in your browser on the tab in which you typed your ip in step 2.
  5. Debug, editing your work in index.js, saving it, and repeating steps 3-5 until all tests pass.

Learn about Flatiron School's Mission

With a new take on education that falls somewhere between self-taught prodigy and four-year computer science degree, the Flatiron School promises to turn students with little programming experience into developers.

In the six months since the Manhattan coding school was acquired by WeWork, it has spawned locations in Washington, D.C., Brooklyn, and London. Now, WeWork is opening a fourth Flatiron School location, this time in Houston.

Adam Enbar, Flatiron School's cofounder, believes now is the time to grow. "How the world is changing has impacted working and learning in very similar ways. We think education fundamentally is about one thing: enabling people to pursue a better life."

Learn. Love. Code.
