It seems like ages since I last posted! I’ve still been making progress though- this week I’ve finished the Stanford SQL course, read through the Frameworks chapter of the Odin Project, and now I’m looking at diving into Ruby on Rails. The Odin Project warned us that the SQL course would be pretty heavy going- which … More Bi-Weekly Learning Update (2!)
Over the past week I’ve been cramming to finish the Odin Project’s Web Development 101 course, and I’m happy to say that I’ve managed to do it! I’ve also finished my evening course in Web Design, and went to a learn-to-code meetup! [It’s been a busy couple of weeks- I think I need a nap…] … More Bi-Weekly Learning Update (8!)

I finally managed to get ahead of my own schedule! Over the weekend I completed the Odin Project’s Ruby Project. You can take a look at my code here. The project used exercises from the Learn Ruby section of Test First. They supplied a collection of test files, and we were charged with writing the … More Warming to Ruby! (TDD & Ruby Project)
I dropped the ball this weekend- I didn’t get to do the Ruby track of codecademy like I’d planned, but I managed to do the first few sections earlier this week, making it about a quarter of the way through. The Testing Basics section of the Odin Project was really short! It brought up some … More Learning the Joy of Testing!
