Okay, I just want to start by saying sockets are awesome! I love sockets. We used sockets for a single day at the Dojo before moving on to MongoDB, but man did they leave a good impression. It’s about to be project week now and I am excited to say that I will finally be using sockets again! But before we get to sockets, I should probably summarize express real quick.
On Day 52 (Tuesday of MEAN week 1), I took a day off to take my wife to the DMV for her driver’s license (She never learned in China so she just started when we came to the states). In an attempt to avoid her having to parallel park on the test, we drove way up into the northern suburbs.

Day 43 was pretty chill at the Dojo. I’m writing this super late (already in project week), but I do remember that this was the day we had a refresher on AJAX.

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
Today was a free day for me since I finished the wall early yesterday. After working with more strings in morning algorithms and then a quick lecture about MySQL, I went ahead and started working an optional section of the learning platform, Ajax with Python. I figured Ajax is pretty awesome and I could use some Continue reading
