SB apprenticeship: Day 16

A friend of mine visited San Francisco and brought me back Meyer lemons from her partner's aunt's tree! Perhaps it's my turn to bring tasty treats into the office...

Do programmers with jobs, who have been doing this for a long time still get that panicky feeling when they look at an assignment and it may as well be written in Greek? Like, I went through code school, I built a lot of stuff, but I still generally feel like I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing. It’s very disheartening. I know that I’ve been doing this for less than a year, but, I don’t know, I expected to feel slightly less lost all the time by now. What do you folks do to get rid of this feeling?

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

Yesterday I rewrote the Coin Changer and the Roman Numeral katas, then I spent most of the rest of the day working on Treehouse tutorials. I went through a bunch of the Ruby ones, and learned stuff about Arrays and Hashes that I didn’t know!

Today I’m going to start working on the new challenges for this quarter — the Gilded Rose kata and a refactoring challenge. I haven’t done a lot of refactoring, so I think it’ll be a learning experience.

I expect to learn that I don’t know anything about refactoring right now. šŸ™‚
