Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

Babel is required to process package imports. If you need a different preprocessor remove all packages first.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

                ///////////////////////////////// Bitwise Operators ///////////////////////////////////////

   // JavaScript's bitwise operators are used to perform bitwise operations on values to determine relationships similar to logical operations, such as AND, OR, NOT, etc.

   // The difference between bitwise operators and logical operators, then, is that bitwise operators are used on numeric values only. 

  // When a bitwise operator is used, numeric values using the operator are converted to their 32 bit values.

  // A bit is the smallest possible unit of (computer) data. A bit can only be one of two binary values: 0 or 1.

  // 8 bits make up one single byte.

  // Knowledge of binary is not required to program with JavaScript, so we will not go into detail on the conversion of a numeric value to its binary value. This conversion is done 'behind the scenes' by the computer anyways.

  // You will probably not use bitwise operators too frequently

  // Bitwise operations result in True or False, like logical operators. 

  // If you'd like to read more about bitwise operators, visit the documentation: 

///////////////////////////////// Other Types of Operators ////////////////////////////////

   // JavaScript has a few additional operators that can be convinient, and are worth mentioning. You likely would not use these as frequently as the other operators already discussed.

      // 1. Type Of : The type of operator returns the data type of a specified variable, object, function, etc.

         // Operator: typeof

         // Examples:

            let car = "Honda";
            typeof car; //this line returns "string" because the value of car is a string
            let x, y;
            let equation = x + 5 / (6 * y) + 17;
            typeof equation; //this line returns "number" because the value returned from evaluating the equation is a number

      // 2. Delete : The delete operator deletes a property from an object

         // Operator: delete

         // Examples:

            let pet = {name:"Macy", species:"Dog", age:5, attribute:"fluffy"};
            delete pet.age;   // removes the age property from the pet object

      // 3. In : The in operator checks to see if a specified property is in a specified object(objects are covered in the next lesson). If the object does contain the property, the operation returns true. Otherwise, it returns false.

         // Operator: in

         // Examples:

            pet = {name:"Macy", species:"Dog", age:5, attribute:"fluffy"};
            "name" in pet;   // returns true because the pet object has a property called "name"

  ///////////////////////// Exercises /////////////////////////
// 1. Declare a new variable named "wage" and set it equal to a monetary value, like 11.50, which represents $11.50. 
    // Concatenate the wage variable to a new variable named "offer" that has the string "You will be paid ". 
    // Use the typeof operator to print the data type of the variable 'offer' to the console. Explain why the data type of the variable is what it was printed as.

// 2. Declare a new object named "school" that includes the following properties: name, colors, and mascot. 
  // Assign these properties to values. Print the colors property to the console, then use the delete operator to remove the colors property from the object.

// 3. Use the in operator to check if the colors property was successfully removed from the school object.
