Week Four Update

Week four came and went, with much learning as always! We started to learn node.js and express, as well as PostgresSQL.  We usually learn something new in the afternoons, then work on other tech we’ve learned and practice in the mornings. Same with homework (each day). We also learned how to install modules with npm for nodejs. Learning ajax was interesting, as I was always curious how that works. Things are starting to click more, so I’m grateful for that.

Onto week five!

Week Three Update

Happy first day of Spring!

 

We just finished week three at GA last week (my post is a bit delayed). We had to create our first game in HTML, CSS and Javascript.  I decided to do a “shooting” game based on my love for coffee 😀

It’s technically “done” but definitely can use some improvement. The “click” functionality is a bit delayed, and I need to work on the timing. I also have some more features I’d like to add. I had a ton of fun working on it, and hope to work on it more after we learn more of the backend.

I hope to update the blog this weekend with what we did this week!

Week Two Update

It's so DOM crazy!

Manipulating the DOM

It’s week two here at web dev bootcamp, and so far so good. We’ve been learning html/CSS, and (vanilla) Javascript elements, scoping, and how to manipulate the DOM.  It’s amazing how much you can learn in a few weeks on your own (doing some pre-work before class starts) and in a week during instruction. My classmates are pretty awesome, and we all know we are in the same boat, which helps us grow and learn from each other. The instructors and TA are great and have a sense of humor, which helps when you’re doing labs or homework.  I love that our lesson themes revolve around comics, sci-fi, or the like.

To make things a bit bearable in the crappy rain, today is $1 burritos at Dos Toros at their new location in Flatiron. My priorities are in check 😀
