So I recently stopped taking General Assembly’s WDI. Explanation requires a separate post, which won’t happen, but I plan to continue investing ~2 programming hours/day, and may attend another bootcamp in the future. We shall see.
That said, here’s what I’ve continued to self-learn. At this point, I’m sharing weekly activity mostly for accountability’s sake, and to have a more-polished record of progress made (or unmade :).
- 4 chapters of Michael Hartl’s Rails Tutorial – hands-down the best Rails training book I’ve used; Michael does an excellent job teaching you Rails fundamentals while explaining – to an appropriate level of detail – the nuance and theory behind the framework and its co-dependent relative (father?) Ruby
- Fun jQuery exercises (created by a Japanese programmer, hence the spotty grammar) – quickly got too advanced for me, though
- Ruby Koans – rec’d by Hartl but have yet to do
If you’re learning too (or already know your stuff), please reach out! Always looking to discover more tips & tools & tricks.
