MONDAY MORNING 👊🖤 let's dooooo it.
Feeling ILL af so i choose coding from my bed this morn 🙌
I'm trying to implement a 'search' function on the web app atm, then I'm not far off from finishing it 😜
what's everyone got on today?
After the morning lecture, today the students will be facing one of the hardest challenges of the bootcamp 🔥🔥🔥⠀
It's a two days exercise, and they are going to build from scratch a restaurant management app. ⠀
No fancy user interfaces yet, but hundreds of lines of Ruby code to fully understand the logic of the MVC architecture and get ready to jump into Ruby on Rails in a couple of weeks. ⠀
Keep going guys! You are doing a great job 💪
▪️I went to the @salon It was awesome. I got take a lot of pictures for my car page and I also learned a few things. I fell in love with the alfa romeo giulia ❤️🏎 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️I got to work a bit on the second lessons for HTML & CSS. I really like the work flow of mmtuts when it comes to building pages. His style is quite different from traversy media im the way he structures his HTML & CSS. He also uses different approaches when implementing the web page from design. He likes using mobile first before moving into desktop. With traversy media, I first started with desktop and then I moved into mobile! Up to now, mmtuts has been very cool🙏🏼

Week 3: It’s all about the sets 👩🏻💻
This weekend I focused on reviewing all my study material from the past two weeks- logic, logic, and some more logic. 🙃
My brain is still in a kerfuffle 🧐 but I’m just going to review the notes and the videos throughout the week until it sinks in.
👾 Now it’s all about week 3 and these sets! Set basics, set operations, set identities.
🧟♀️ But not right now haha My brain has officially died so now it’s off to see @thepunisher on @netflix
Whenever you catch yourself developing similar features over and over again, there’s a good chance you can save time in the long run by creating a generic version of that feature, which you can then easily reuse and extend upon.
I started working on a new project at work a couple of weeks ago, and for this project, I knew I would have to build many import features. This project is based on a generic web app bundle for Symfony that we just started developing, so I figured that adding a pinch of abstraction could make the entire import flow generic enough to include it in the bundle instead of in the app itself. 👌🏼
Well, it required a little bit more than a pinch, but I got a basic version up and running. My objective is to get it to handle about 90% of all import flows with just a simple configuration file, but to also allow for more in-depth extendability using more configurations and event listeners.
Most of the basic elements being implemented, I now need to add support for relation properties of the entities. Needless to say that’s likely going to take a few more hours to get it to work correctly, but I have a strict deadline ahead of me for this project, so I’ll leave Instagram for now and get back to coding right away! See ya! 👨🏻💻
And... Just like that another weekend is over! 😭😭😭 It's not all bad though - I finished my #freecodecamp notes on #cssgrid and when I do the last couple of projects I'll have earned the Responsive Web Design certification! 👩💻🎉 I also finished the Jon Duckett HTML and CSS book 💪 - there's nothing else I can learn from that.
Finally, I got 80% of the way through the @codecademy Command Line course and started on a blog post. I'll finish off the course during this week when I can make notes on what I've learned so far as I need them for the final unit. There's too much to just keep in my head and then regurgitate!
What's in the pic? 📸 For years I've been a die-hard Trello user. I'm going back to try Asana for a bit, for some things and I've noted down all the coding-related stuff I want to get done over the next couple of weeks. It doesn't look like loads, but I know some things will probably take me more time than I expect. Plus I've got a busy week ahead, with a pitch, prep for another pitch, plus whatever else comes up at work 🤯. I hope you all have a good one!
How I Deal with Imposter Syndrome✨💡 This is a question I get asked a lot so I wanted to share some of my experiences with it and how I navigate through it 💻 Full video link in bio! Let me know what you think! 👩🏼💻
My students are updating their portfolios today. Some are almost ready to start looking for their first programming job. 👌🔥😎 Some of my students are only 15 years old! How old were you when you started programming?

Meet the @tappilyapp team!
We are the co-founders. I'm the CEO, and @markdalton_ is the CTO.
We split our tasks based off of our skills and what we enjoy doing. Mark and I have complimentary skills, meaning if I don't like to do something, Mark usually enjoys doing it.
Here's how we split our tasks:
Lilly: content creation side of marketing (Instagram and YouTube), UI/UX design (mockup and implementation) of app and website, frontend coding for Android, high level decisions, prioritization of high level tasks.
Mark: getting beta users (marketing), back end and front end coding for Android and iOS, analytics for @tappilyapp and website, low level design decisions, and prioritization of low level tasks.
We both have our strengths and weaknesses, but combined we make a very strong team with a wide variety of skills.
It's amazing the amount of stuff we knock out working together. We've found a way to leverage our individual strengths to work the most efficiently.
Would you rather work with someone who has the same or different skills as you?
I read a book this morning and took it slow with the snowstorm happening outside ❄️
But now I am ready to get started and work on my blog! 😁❤️🔥
I also have an interview with @wittypodcast tonight! 💃
One of the questions is: what are three things you found challenging in the tech industry?
The only thing that comes to my mind is how everyone has different knowledge, some are beginners and some are experts and it can feel overwhelming/not good enough when you see all your classmates with different skills. 😅
What do you find challenging in the tech industry? 👀

Here is what I did in these 10 days. My 10 days in one post. It’s time to finish all projects and couple of course which I was procrastinating to watch, sat down turned off everything and got shit done. In the end, I felt that it was easy and it was just 10 days. Finished with a School project. And I have learned tons of new stuff.
Finished course of photography. But it’s not the main thing, the main thing that I rewrote the budget to ES6+, it was easy to understand ES6+, because of WEBOS course, project with Wes, it was pleasure to watch Wes how he writes code, blow my mind, first I think about his next line of code next step, 10/10 missed 😂, because logic is different and Wes said, it will come after sometimes.
As I said, I will move to React.js soon, decided after 10 days I’m moving to React.js course, and new course “How to become WEB developer in 2019”. A lot of things have changed in React.js, I wanna practice my JS skills every day, learning new thing related to JS every day.
Was it easy to learn it, for the first time, yes after sometimes you will get the idea, how to write and how to use it in your projects, like how to work with DOM. Recommend you to watch WesBos.

Algorithms are the common ways of solving various computer science / programming problems 🙇🏻♀️. For example, there are several algorithms that are commonly used for sorting lists of things programmatically 📝. Each of these sorting algorithms has a different set of properties regarding speed 🏃🏻♀️, memory size requirements 🧠, and the ideal kind of data it works on.
There are many of these algorithms in the field of computer science 💻, and it is also important to understand how to write your own variations of these algorithms to solve the kind of tricky problems you might encounter when solving real programming problems 👩🏻💻. Often, being good with algorithms can allow one developer to solve a problem in an hour ⏳ that might take another developer several days to figure out 💡.
Data structures fall into a similar category and work in conjunction with algorithms 🔄. There are several data structures all software developers should be familiar with including 👩🏻🏫:
• Arrays or vectors
• Linked lists
By having a good grasp of data structures and algorithms, you can easily and elegantly solve many difficult programming problems 💁🏻♀️. It’s really rewarding 🥇 to work through a difficult problem and to utilize data structures and algorithms to develop a clean, elegant solution that performs really well 💯.
In my opinion, the best resource is by far Gayle Laakmann McDowell’s excellent book, Cracking the Coding Interview 📖. In this book, she goes over just about everything you need to know about algorithms and data structures 🤓.
It’s a challenge to learn this stuff, but well worth it. This is one of those skillsets that can set you far above your peers 📈. And if you want to pass an interview at a company like Microsoft or Google 💼, you will definitely need to master this skill set.
👉🏼 What’s your favorite algorithm?
👉🏼 Do you recommend any other books for data structure and algorithms?
Much love, Cece 🌸 (@carmencodes_ )

What language/framework are you learning?
▪️I woke up this morning early in order to learn how to use my new camera. There are SO many new features in this thing, its INSANE. It will take sometime to learn most things and learn how to shoot awesome pictures. For now, I wont be getting too fancy since I barely know anything. I also need to learn lightroom ASAP. Its such a powerfull tool to edit pictures and make them look awesome. 🤤 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️I'm still going hard on CSS. Today I got to work on positioning, overflow and floats. Im still at it with floats since Its such a hard concept for me to grasp. Its just weird. I need to make sure I understand most things before moving into the more practical stuff. To be honest, I really enjoy learning about this stuff. I need to continue watching my UI/UX course in order to get good at this whole front-end development thing.
