In our growth engineering meeting Friday we learned about SEO, one of the important practices of which is not duplicating content. So I think that means I should come up with different headlines for my blog posts, since the only thing that changes is the number of the day. Sadly, I have always been terrible at headlines (the advantage of being a reporter is that usually editors come up with headlines based on space and other editorial considerations. I never had to get good at them.) so this may be a work in progress.
- What did you learn yesterday?
- What are you going to do today?
- What do you expect to learn?
I didn’t get a lot of work done Friday: we had the backend standup, then the growth engineering meeting, then the company standup, then lunch, then Ian showed a bunch of us how to do a simple project in Swift and Xcode, then we apprentices met with our mentors to discuss whether we should switch from Code School to Treehouse for online lessons. After that I decided to play with Treehouse some, so I could have an informed opinion. My only complaint so far is that Treehouse makes you follow a track, so I had to spend 10 minutes learning very basic Ruby things. As far as complaints so, though, that’s pretty minor.
Today I plan to start working on the Roman Numeral kata, then Jordan, who was in my TIY cohort and who finished the apprentice program right before I started, is going to help me go over some tests for my tic-tac-toe. I think this week I’m going to start working on the SSH & Webservers challenge also, so I can keep to the schedule they suggested for us.
Today I expect to learn how to do the Roman Numerals kata. I tried it last week, but got really confused, so Brandon suggested I go back to Coin Changer and make sure I really had that down.
