This week… was my last week at Remote! I had a great time there helping with things like starting their open source organization and helping organize Devs For Ukraine, and it’s bittersweet ending my time at the company. An opportunity came up that was too exciting for me to turn down, and I’ll be sharing more about that next week!!
Also this week, our third episode of the Dev Morning Show (at night) aired, featuring the amazingly creative Charlie Gerard! You can watch on YouTube, or wherever you get your podcasts.

This week’s question:
Remember the bouncing DVD logo? Given the dimensions of the logo, its initial coordinates, and the size of a screen, write a function that will determine if its next collision will hit the corner of the screen. Assume it is initially moving southeast with a slope of -1. Extra credit, figure out how many bounces/collisions it will take to hit a corner!
let dimensions = [5,5] let initialCoordinates = [0,0] // you decide which part of the logo the coords map to let screenSize = [100,100] > cornerHit(dimensions, initialCoordinates, screenSize) > true // in one collision > cornerHit(dimensions, [45,70], [400,200]) > false
