I don’t have a lot to say today, so here’s a silly screwup from the PlayStation store from last night.
- What did you learn yesterday?
- What are you going to do today?
- What do you expect to learn?
Yesterday I worked through a lot of the Test-Driven Development book. I struggled for a while with this book; the code examples are written in Java and Python, and so I would spend more time trying to figure out what the code was doing than learning about the tests, but I finally hit a couple chapters that were more explanation than code, and that was really helpful.I like this book, but I think I’m going to pick up Rails 4 Test Prescriptions and see if maybe this makes more sense with code that is more familiar to me.
Today is labs day! Although I’m not really working on a project, per se, so for me it’s work on tutorials day! W00t!
I’ve been trying to go back through some of the tutorials I did before TIY, I feel sometimes like I didn’t actually retain any information from code school and I’m just like flailing at the keyboard and faking it really well. Objectively I know that isn’t true, but imposter syndrome is definitely a thing.
