Calculator Web App

I initially began this project during my time as a student at LearningFuze. The idea behind the project was to create a very basic calculator using javascript to perform the basic calculations. I noticed that alot of the calculators that I found online didn’t look very nice, so I wanted to design something a little different that was visually appealing.

A Note: The calculator works on a mobile phone, but it looks best on a tablet or a desktop.

This was the second javascript centered project that I ever took on, so subsequently it was a challenge from the start. The purpose of the project was to learn a bit more about Javascript and the peculiar aspects of the language. I was under the impression at the start of the project that it would be very simple but I was surprised how much more nuanced it was than I originally anticipated.

This project really hit home the need to pay close attention to data types, particularity how javascript handles strings and numbers differently.
