Coding Exercise
  1. Create variable called infoArray and assign it to an empty array.
  2. Then add several strings to that array:
    1. your full name
    2. your github, twitter, linkedin or other social url
    3. your favorite color
  3. Next create a function named splitName. It should take in a parameter called name.
  4. The splitName function should take the name passed in and slice it into the name parts.
    Ex: Bob Smith would become an array with two values in it “Bob” and “Smith”.
  5. Now create a new variable called myInfo and assign an object literal to it.
  6. Add the following key-value pairs to myInfo
    • Key: firstName
      Value: assign your first name using the splitName function and the infoArray array
    • Key: LastName
      Value: assign your last name using the splitName function and the infoArray array
    • Key: social
      Value: assign your social url using the infoArray array
    • Key: color
      Value: assign your favorite color using the infoArray array
