Preparing for Coding Bootcamp

Updated July 26th, 2016

Learning to Code

My first week at the offices of AppAcademy started at the beginning of July. We are writing JavaScript algorithms to solve data set problems. Though the algorithm problems are fascinating, I find it’s important to create things that are actually useful. For that I hand coded a CSS/HTML tribute page to my late grandfather. I also just finished hand coding the first iteration of my programming portfolio.

Just the other day, we broke through how we can use the algorithms we’re creating to mix with data. We’re using NodeJS to break this barrier and I find it fascinating! I’ve also developed a good understanding of what JSON is, how it plays a role in the universe of computer programming and why it’s one of the most exciting technologies available. If you’d like to hear what taught me a lot, check out this ChangeLog podcast.
