Week 13 at Learners Guild saw a beginning of a shift from the fundamentals of web technologies to more practical know-how.
The things Learners are learning at Learners Guild is, in substantial part, “packages”, designed to make commonly performed operations easier than just writing the code for them from scratch. But they also add to the complexity of the ecosystem we are learning to work in.
My 11th week studying web software engineering at Learners Guild had me developing a couple of applications that, on the surface, seem both super-simple and utterly useless. But developing a useless application may teach fundamental technologies even more effectively. Here’s why I think so.
My 10th week at Learners Guild was a reminder that software development depends not only on the human mind, but also on the human body.
My 9th week at Learners Guild has receded into oblivion, but I have rescued the main points by looking up my coding history on Github. Time was my main problem during that holiday-shortened week. By that I mean not the usual thing, but figuring out how to manage the timing of events in my programs.
My week 8 at Learners Guild was the first ordinary week under the Guild’s new learning model. A new computing world is being revealed, and my job is to make it mine.
My week 7 at Learners Guild isn’t finished yet. I’m blogging about it in mid-week, in view of its unusual schedule. We are experiencing life under a new learning model.
Last week at Learners Guild was different, in various ways, including a major restructuring of the Guild’s software-developer training system.
