JavaScript Code Kata

Dave Thomas was recently on the CodeNewbie podcast and talked about code kata for a few minutes.

A kata is an exercise in karate where you repeat a form many times, making little improvements each time.

The code kata is a way to bring practice sessions into programming.

In my day-to-day work, the problems I solve with JavaScript are not complicated:

  • sticky nav
  • add/remove class based on behavior
  • handle click tracking
  • carousels
  • form validation
  • lightbox

 

So this seems like a great way to stretch my JavaScript legs, so to speak. There are many places online to find code kata; I signed up on Codewars. Even at the beginner and novice levels, I’m working through problems that extend my abilities.

But also, math.

If you’re interested in doing code kata yourself, LMGTFY. If you happen to sign up on Codewars, I’d love to know so we can compete against each other!
