Today we had what was technically our first day with The Software Guild. Funny to think after the last two weeks I’ve only now had my first day of this program, but those first two weeks were probationary, almost like rushing a fraternity, and now we’re in! Today we practiced communicating between our Gits andContinue reading “Using Git and Github Step by Step”
I can’t believe we’ve reached the end of our trial two week vestibule! You know what else I can’t believe? That I just coded Snake for my final project. Sometime last week when I was coding a sunset or something it dawned on me that what I was doing was comparable to Snake. Controlling anContinue reading “Final Project-Snake!!”
An ongoing homework assignment in this bootcamp is to regularly attend tech related events and blog about them. The point of this being both to learn more about our fields and to network with others at these events. Unfortunately as I’m writing this post in March of 2020, the world is on fire. And thatContinue reading “Digital Ocean Webinar”
Happy St. Patrick’s day!! Professor D announced that we will be assessed tomorrow, so I’m looking for all the Irish luck I can get! My classmates and I are studying laboriously tonight but I decided to take a quick break to recap my journey with Git. Today we were supposed to create a Github andContinue reading “Week 2, Day 2- Git and Github”
Today we had to do two Coding in the Dark assignments that led up to a pair programming project. This week I had not one but TWO partners, Tenzin and Janiece. For our first CITD challenge, Professor D showed us some alien code and asked us to translate it into P5. Here’s the code translatedContinue reading “Week 2, Day 1- More Coding in the Dark and Pair Programming”
It is Sunday as I start to write this but I’m sure it will be posted just after midnight Monday morning, bringing a wrap to my first week of code bootcamp at Tech Hire. My classmates and I commiserated together all weekend over our Friday night homework assignment. We were tasked with going through allContinue reading “End of Week One-Arrays, Conditionals, Constructors, and Git”
Today I wrote code with a partner for the first time and it was surprisingly fun. My partner Caroline and I were tasked with creating code together that played with some of the new functions we were introduced to a few hours before. We both really liked the color changing effect caused by crossing certainContinue reading “Day Four-Pair Programming”
Today in class we had our first “Code in The Dark” challenge, or CITD. I found this to be a little stressful, but ultimately very satisfying. I left class upset because I didn’t completely finish the second challenge, but I can happily say at almost 12:30 AM I finally got it. Our first challenge wasContinue reading “Day Three- Coding in The Dark”
Today in class we focused on variables. “let” and “const” are in, and “var” is out. Noted. Being able to establish a value for a variable creates a very helpful shorthand. Our assignment was to play around in the P5 editor with color and shapes but to do so with variables that we would thenContinue reading “Day Two- Using Defined Variables to Animate”
