So the lessons are OK, but there's never any mention of where or how to start using these skills on my own sites or how to start creating my own programs... when I copy and paste the code for this game into a new .js file, and link it to an HTML page, it doesn't work... suggestions?
Could you post your code e.g. jsfiddle.net, github.com etc? You kept in mind that console.log doesn't "work" on the page (it prints to the console so you need to find where the console of your browser is) and all that stuff? Have you've taken the HTML+CSS and maybe the jQuery course or anything comparable?
