An internship diary by Chris Newton. Chris took part in Dharmafly’s first summer internship, when three students joined us at the Lab for the Recently Possible to gain skills in developing experimental web applications. Some of their observations and reflections are posted in this blog.
July 2012 – week 3
forEach loops on the server or
_.each loops on the client, JS is gradually getting easier to write.
At the moment I’m working on several projects, but two stand out for me. Firstly I’m getting stuck into Node.js and am in the process of writing a social graph API in the environment. It basically works likes this: you provide it with a URL, say, a Twitter profile, and from there it follows hyperlinks that contain
rel="me" to other pages owned by the same person.
Basically I’m being paid to have fun – a fairly surreal experience as I was pretty sure that when you called something work it was meant to suck; apparently this is yet another instance of TV lying to me.
