I thought time would go slower, but it’s just as speedy as a usual work week.
Week Two was filled with learning the basics of jQuery and learning how to make simple games like Pacman and 1942. Okay… I say they are simple, but in reality I am still learning the basics of algorithms and how to implement them into my code. What I’ve realized about myself is that I often start writing code that is far more complicated than it needs to be and the program helps to teach you to shorten it and make it more elegant as time goes by.
This is the end of our Web Fundamentals course and now our cohort is moving into Python.
Overall Impression of Web Fundamentals:
I liked them. I can’t give a really good review of the first week because I know CSS and HTML5 too well to know if the learning materials were adequate or not but they seemed so. I enjoyed the second week, which was tons of jQuery and Git practices. Git is great, I need to get better at using it and I’m sure I will in my next few weeks.
I will be posting my projects to my portfolio soon and hopefully doing more updates. What I’ve realized is that when they say 10-12 hours they literally mean 10-12 hours. By midweek last week I was spending about 11 hours a day doing work, not necessarily because I was behind but because I wanted to have a better understanding of the concepts before moving forward.
