Week 14-15: Rails Installfest for Android Project

2/8     Tried Noisli for productivity. Birds. Random pond sounds. Sounded nice at first. Got sick of it after a while. Installed Linuxbrew. Learned migrations. 2/9     Still doing the Rails project. So many errors. But I’m really taking it slow and reading and understanding each step. I know what erb now. It’s […]

Week 12 and 13: MVC, Ruby on Rails

Incoming stream of consciousness: 1/24-1/31 Didn’t do bitbucket. Skipped a bit of Git stuff. Rails is interesting though. I understand how MVC is the foundation. Should I memorize the directories in order? Maybe another day. The command line is so helpful. Do I even need a mouse? I want to connect a separate monitor on […]

Week 9: Ruby, First Client Project, WordPress

1/4     I was having trouble with the testing project, so I decided to brush up on Ruby through Codecademy. Apparently, they’re updating the course this summer of 2017, so I’d have to finish it by then. I hope to finish the course tomorrow. But I wish they made a course about RSpec! I saw a […]

Week 8: TDD, RSpec, SQL

12/28     It’s been two months already and I’m still under Web Development 101? Sigh… Must inhale all the espresso beans! Done with Chapter 10. Thanks TOP for telling me not to feel disheartened if Ruby still doesn’t click. Someone click it for me! At least it’s not as bad as it was when I first started. […]

Week 6 and Week 7: Ruby, Holidays, Renewed Sense of Motivation

  12/14-17     Started learning Ruby. Researched as to which is better: Single quotes or double quotes. Single quotes are aesthetically better and I use it for other languages. On the other hand, I’ve gotten errors just because I use it for interpolation and completely forgot about it. 12/18     Learned how to open sublime text […]

Sublime text

Week 5: Loops, Pushing Through, Pomodoro Technique

12/7-8     Been working on the sketchpad project. I have difficulty with making the grid. It’s one of those, “I have it on the tip of my tongue”, but it’s just not working itself out. I know problem solving is not my strongest suite, which is why I wanted to tackle programming. Now that I think […]

Week 4: jQuery Basics and DOM Traversal

11/30-12/1     Finished the assigned jQuery basics on Codecademy and Code School(CS). The Odin Project(TOP) states that there’s no need to complete the whole course. It’s extra credit and it will be covered later. However, if I found a blog that suggests that students should finish both courses completely. The blogger finished TOP and wanted to […]
