Looking Back – Python Stack Conclusion

As of today it’s been a week since the end of the Python stack. I’ve been too busy enjoying my time off to write any blog posts. This week is probably the only week off that I’ll get for the whole duration of the bootcamp, so I’ve done my best not to waste it. I’m sitting in my wife’s office as I type this because she’s taking a half day for Continue reading

Day 28 – Python Project Week Day 3

Almost done with the MVP! There was some unforeseen complexity with moving multiple selections to the trash, so we still have that left to do. Moving files/folders around is also going to rely on multiple selection, so there’s that too. I stayed up late last night (writing this on Thursday morning) to make the Continue reading

Day 26 – Python Project Week Day 1

Yesterday was the official start of project week. There’s only one other group working on a project besides me and Armando this time around. On Friday we had a Project Week vote again and everyone decided on Etsy for the target clone to create. So the other project week group is going to be building Etsy with the MEAN stack. Etsy is a nice site, but I’m glad that I started early and got to pick Google Drive instead. I’m betting Continue reading

Day 25 – Project_Collaborators += 1

When I arrived at the Dojo yesterday (a bit late), I was surprised by how empty it was. Turned out everyone was holed up in the WebFun room already started on their belt exams! Or at least everyone that showed up was. I missed the discussion on Thursday because I was busy working with the Coding Dojo alumni Continue reading

Day 22 – Ready for the Belt Exam!

My code review with Fiaz went well today. I showed him the completed belt reviewer and dojo secrets assignments and he determined I’m plenty ready to take the belt exam tomorrow. I showed him some of my Swift code too and he seemed impressed that I had gotten as far as I did with only self teaching. He actually laughed out loud when I told him I Continue reading

Day 21 – Belt Reviewer

I made it to the belt reviewer today! The objective is to make a fully featured book review site. Users can register, log in, view book reviews, view book pages, visit user profiles, and create new reviews. Supposedly, the belt exam for the python stack is easier than the belt reviewer, so if I can finish the belt reviewer satisfactorily, Continue reading

Day 19+20 Django-tastic

This post is a little late, but I’ve been doing well the past two days. Django all day, every day! On Thursday, I picked up more of the basics by porting a bunch of completed Flask assignments over to Django. Ninja Gold, Disappearing Ninjas, and Dojo Survey to name a few. Doing so gave me practice in correctly formatting regex patterns for Continue reading
