Recently I started teaching myself basic JavaScript from online tutorials and resources. One of the products of this has been a basic content slider/carousel. I have seen many similar sliders built in jQuery, and using one of these pre-built solutions may be easier than building one from scratch in pure JavaScript, however this was done as  a learning exercise as well as to get the final product. I feel that the creation process really helped improve my coding skills, and particularly the compacting I did after it was complete and functional, whereby I stripped out a lot of extra code. I may or may not include the slider in my portfolio  website.

The slider can be found here.
