We walked into a slightly different Smashing Boxes this morning — we rearranged the desks and are now sitting in pods. Instead of having people grouped by job (like back-end developer, marketing, project manager, etc), now we’re grouped in teams. It’s an interesting way of doing things, and I look forward to better figuring out how the different components work together here! I’m sitting next to David, one of the other apprentices, but Lindsey is now all the way across the room, so our little apprentice pod is no more. *tear*
- What did you learn yesterday?
- What are you going to do today?
- What do you expect to learn?
Yesterday I fought some more with Rspec, attempting to write tests for my 4×4 tic tac toe. I can’t seem to figure out how to get started doing them, every time I try I just get confused. I may try to pin Brandon down and see if he can give me advice. I also finished the Git Real Code School course.
Today is Friday, so it’s labs day! Last week I ended up working on Learn Ruby the Hard Way, but I think this week I’m actually going to wander around and see what other people are doing. There’s going to be a lecture about Swift that I want to sit in on, I’m curious how mobile development works. We apprentices also have a meeting with the growth engineering team this morning, so I’m excited about finding out what growth engineering actually is.
I expect to learn a little about a lot of things today: Swift, growth engineering and various projects around the office.
