Week 2 at LEARN Academy
Week 2 at LEARN – What a week.
Before going into this week, I felt loops and some functions were just like light bulbs. I know if I flip a switch, the room will light up. I have no idea how the light bulb works, but it does work and I can rely on the result when I flip the switch. After this week, I’m beginning to understand how things work. I understand what is happening in a loop, and it’s becoming more clear on which loop to try in a given situation. Also, that pesky return. Should things go inside a certain set of curly braces or outside.
I have been able to pair program with all but two of my cohorts, and hopefully I will be paired up with them next week. I’ve really enjoyed everyone in my cohort at LEARN. We all have different backgrounds but we all have the passion of learning to code in common. I think we have a really fun group. My favorite part of each day is at then end when we share our code. It is amazing to see all of our different approaches to the same tasks, and I am learning from them and gaining new perspectives.
My number one takeaway from the week was to COMMENT YOUR CODE!
Lunch this week was:
Monday – Berkeley Pizza – deep dish slices.
Tuesday – Fatboy’s for a quick BLTA sandwich.
Wednesday – didn’t go out
Thursday – Saguaro’s for a chili relleno burrito, delicious.
Friday – Swamis for a sit-down lunch. Yummy tuna avocado croissant sandwich.
Up next – jQuery and building a Battleship game.
