The Free Code Camp
The main reason that i was busy especially during the weekend is the Free Code Camp.Free Code camp is a very intense online curriculum for full-stack web developers.As an organisation they focus on helping non-profits with their coding needs.Provided that you do well and complete the rigorous assignments, the general idea is that you will end up helping non-profits in real life projects which is very interesting
You go through front-end web development first where you tackle several projects and work on algorithms which is very nice of them.I really believe that newcomers to the field tend to ignore the fact that algorithms are needed and many online courses tend to ignore that as well from what i have seen. I went through the first basic set of algorithms and they were interesting and for a newbie they are really challenging.I am looking forward to the second set which i expect to really start challenging me. Since we are talking about algorithms you can check Project Euler and CodeWars but beware both these sites don’t really hold your hand. Codewars is more beginner friendly i think and you can write the code on the site itself on embedded versions of vi and emacs. Project Euler on the other hand just gives you the problem and you can just solve it however you want.
I won’t spend more time this week because i really have to get back to coding.I will also attend an angular js meetup this week but i have no idea about angular.I just want to get to know some new people and learn some stuff about angular as well.Having some beer also sounds nice !
I will be back next week or i will post something after the meetup is done because this was a bit sort article
