SB apprenticeship: Day 33

Forget Battleship, Tic-tac-toe and bowling, I want to make an RPG!

Forget Battleship, Tic-tac-toe and bowling, I want to make an RPG!

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

Yesterday I worked on the Agile Rails 4 book for most of the day again. I only have a chapter left! Well, assuming I don’t do the deployment chapter, which looks like it actually needs me to have a server I can deploy to, so I was planning to skip it. I guess I could put it on Heroku, but man, I had the worst luck with Heroku in code school. It never, ever worked for me. So maybe I’m a little prejudiced against deploying things…hm. Anyway, I’m going to finish that up this morning and then I think start on the Bowling Kata. I keep making all these games that I never actually play — Battleship, tic-tac-toe and now bowling! I should suggest that Brandon change the assignment to make a nice RPG, like Dungeons and Dragons. Wait…actually…can we do that? That sounds AWESOME! I wrote that kind of stream-of-consciousness, but now I actually want to try.

Anyway. First book, then bowling. Well, first book, then reading the Wikipedia page on how to keep score in bowling, then kata. Today I’m pairing with Brandon for two hours! I should figure out if he wants me to have a plan or something to work on or if he’s bringing something.

Today I expect to learn how bowling is scored. Man, I hate bowling. I’m not very good at most organized sports, but it makes me mad that I’m bad at bowling. It’s just throwing a ball down a greased wooden floor! How can it be so hard! Argh. Hopefully working on the kata will not be as frustrating as actual bowling.
