SB Apprenticeship: Day 60

Words of wisdom

Words of wisdom

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

Yesterday I learned the value in committing often. I accidentally deleted everything I had done Monday in trying to get rid of some code I wrote while following the wrong path to creating a customer for Stripe. Soooooo, that was frustrating. I got most of it rewritten, but there was a tricky part I had needed help on, and now I can’t remember what we did.

Today I’m going to continue rewriting the code that was lost and then go back to attempting to create a customer in Stripe. Man, I’m so close to finishing this project. I can almost taste it!

I had planned on doing some more Ruby tutorial/Code School/Treehouse stuff today, but Brandon is unexpectedly in the office, so that may change. Today makes 12 weeks since I started my apprenticeship, but I’m still at least a month out from (hopefully) being hired. Brandon told me that they picked 12 weeks fairly arbitrarily and that as long as I was making progress it was fine if I didn’t finish in that time, but it’s still frustrating to be behind. Still, I can tell that I know way more than I did 12 weeks ago, this bookstore project is coming along despite my stupid git tricks, and it’s all going to wind up awesome.
