So I got this working… and I am just happy that I did. I understand it and I know I could spend some time to improve the speed, but for me this project was kind of blah compared to the others I have completed. I left the logos out because it already runs like crap and the user stories did not specify that you needed them.
Out of all 4 of the projects, this one kind of felt like a huge step backwards. By this point I understand the APIs and using ajax comfortably, but it felt like the FCC Twitch / API setup instructions kind of made this a pain instead of fun.
