Last week, I created a project using ORM & MVC techniques to update a MySQL database. This week’s project was to update the same app from vanilla MySQL to a Node Sequelize version. I have never been so excited for a new technology in my entire life.
Before Friend Finder, we spent a month working on CLI apps with no GUI. That’s a lot of apps without graphics. My first Handlebars full stack app takes burger orders and serves them up. The app needs to look fantastic! I’ve created some initial graphics for my burger shop.
The Coding Boot Camp I’m attending demands a lot of time and attention to detail, both inside and outside the classroom. A few weeks ago, my climbing time totals surpassed 40 hours outside of class in a single week – that’s in addition to 10 classroom hours and 3 office hours. I hope I don’t
I tend to write my code to be functional. I have a set of problems to solve, and I solve them one after another until the project is complete and in proper working order. I’m beginning to spend some time looking back and how I accomplished my goals, and how I could have done it better.
When I was nearly completed with the working project, I read an article explaining SOLID vs. STUPID principles. It basically rips my project to shreds and calls it terrible code. My only defense is that the project works as intended. Moving forward, I’ll be focusing on creating significantly more SOLID code!
We began building a server side node application that would search for data through the Spotify API, Twitter API, and OMDB API. As someone who loves to create graphics of all kinds for my projects, I was challenged to find a way to scratch my image itch.
As break ends and the Coding Boot Camp classes have started up again, we’re diving into node. I started using node a few weeks ago for the poker project, but we’re starting with passing parameters, utilizing external files, and accessing external APIs.
After 9 weeks of training, I’m building my own real-time interactive MERN adaptive AI project. (I assume I’ll hit React at some point as I continue for a cleaner UIX.) Anyone interested in a highly motivated Junior Programmer who learns fast, finds his own resources, and writes clean code?
I’m getting back into the tech field. Many of you know I’ve been creating websites & online apps since the mid 90’s. I had a handful of paying contract jobs (maybe a dozen), but it was mainly a hobby. This year, that’s finally changing.
