My son sees me working from home from time-to-time. I sit there at my desk writing lines of code, mostly pretty mundane stuff like web forms. I can admit that there's nothing particularly exciting about it. But I showed my son what I was working on and he totally got turned off. I get that, but it still kinda hurt.
So, when I finally had a little down time, I decided to write something a little more interesting to him. What guy doesn't want to impress his kid?
It has logic and does what it is supposed to do. But I wanted a little more of a challenge... Something more interactive. A "Simon Says!" game seemed perfect for this. Once again, only using Vanilla JS.
There's a lot more I could do with these games, but if I do, it will be much later. (This stuff doesn't pay the bills, folks.) Either way, I had fun and my boy got to see that I am capable of more than "boring" work projects.
What have you done to impress your kids using your day job skills?
