Highlighted Topics

  • In a nutshell, if the elevator door was closing between us, what does My Working Soul do?
  • What type of personas/personalities would be best suited for leveraging My Working Soul as a career resource?
  • Passionate about growth and development…fair. But I must ask how/why/what compels that virtue by itself?
  • Are you ever met with some resistance when providing input to your clients (individual/org)? Especially executive-level leadership.
  • Yoga as part of My Working Soul’s offerings…but why?
  • An avid reader I see…I’m in over my head talking to you about Victorian literature, so I won’t go there. But…implications of artificial intelligence in a digital economy. Let’s go there. Tell me what’s up.
  • How are you studying multiple languages at this time? Books, online, both?

Conclusion

Check Corrine out on all major social media platforms but I think it’s most important to simply go head first into the source at MyWorkingSoul.com

Mighty Morphin Data Structures, Part 5

Introduction

The goal for this season of AllWebSD is to deconstruct lessons learned from going head first into data structures. It’s my hope that I can translate a complex topic into an easy-going format and I’ll do so by channeling my inner 10-year-old self. You see back in my day, I was a big fan of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series. So I’m going to take snapshots from that show and brush it with some code.

Information on data structures are abundant. To be honest, you don’t have to invent this. And frankly, neither did I. Hence, the code is pre-baked and available on Github.

The additional and intentional challenge here is that this is in audio only. If you can follow along, awesome. But remember, the source code is on the repo. I’ll upload a video as well, just in case.

That said, are you ready? Alright then. It’s Morphin Time!




The Situation

We need DinoZord power now!

Recall from our last episode that we’ve reprioritized the emergencies based on our priority queue. Now it’s time to call on the power of MegaZord by assembling the DinoZords. We’ll do so with a stacked data structure.

This introduces us to the concept of LAST IN FIRST OUT.

The Data Structure

function createStack() {
	// Store our items in an array held in closure.
	const stack = [];

	// Return our stack as a plain JS object.
	return {
		// Place new items at the end of the array.
		push(x) {
			stack.push(x);
		},
		// Remove the final item in the array. This ensures order is maintained.
		pop() {
			if (stack.length === 0) {
				return undefined;
			}
			return stack.pop()
		},
		// Return the last item in the array.
		peek() {
			if (stack.length === 0) {
				return undefined;
			}
			if (stack.length === 5) {
				return 'MegaZord activated!';
			}
			return stack[stack.length - 1]
		},
		// Use a getter ensures we always get the current length.
		get length() {
			return stack.length;
		},
		isEmpty() {
			return stack.length === 0;
		}
	}
}

Conclusion

That’s it! I hope you enjoyed learning about data structures with a mighty morphin twist. Let me know your thoughts on this choice thus far and other paths that could’ve been considered.
