There's a set of giant Durham chess at the American Tobacco Campus!

  • What did you learn yesterday?
  • What are you going to do today?
  • What do you expect to learn?

Yesterday Brandon and I went over my coin changer kata once again, this time completely without peeking at previous versions. I think I use the other ones as a crutch, so it’s kind of disheartening when I go to do it and can’t remember that I want to have “`it “does this code” do“` rather than “`if “does this code” do“` even though I’ve been doing this for a week now. I really just want the Matrix stuff to be available already. Download all the code knowledge! Doing it that way did seem to help me cement some of it, I think. Guess we’ll find out when I do the kata again!

Today I think I figured out how to implement the depth limit search into my minimax code for my 4×4 tic-tac-toe, so I’m going to mess with that some more. I’m not sure how good programmers are able to look at other people’s code solutions and see how it fits in with their different code. I can look at examples all day, but when I try to relate it to my own code it’s just a confusing mess. Hopefully that will come with experience.

I expect to learn how the depth limiting works in my code! After that I’m going to fix bugs and figure out rspec tests for my tic-tac-toe.
