Chapter 9 - initial code (circle) does not work

I copied the code from the web version of the book, and it looks right to my eyes, but no circle:


From Data to UI #container { padding: 50px; background-color: #fff; }

Are you seeing any errors in the console?

Btw, are you the same Jesse Liberty from Silverlight fame?!!


Thanks for the quick response. The problem was an errant semicolon. Yup, that’s me.

That’s awesome. I lament a lot about Flash’s demise. Silverlight’s (and its focus on enterprise scenarios, XAML tools [I think we met a few times around this in person], and a C# programming option) demise is a close second haha.

The place where this lives on, to a degree, is in Xamarin programming.

You lament the loss of the C# programming option (as do I). Why then am I learning React which is JavaScript rather than Angular which uses TypeScript – which is much closer to C#?

You can use TypeScript with React too :wink: It even supports JSX (used by React) out of the box.
