Oh, there is just so much to say and I know that if I'd started writing about my experience at Flatiron School from Day 1 this wouldn't be so much of a problem.
The experience so far has been amazing. I'm being challenged on a daily basis, in a language that I never even looked at before beginning this program. It's hard, (I even found myself questioning if I belong at one point) but it's so worth it. I'm surrounded by intelligent people, and supported by amazing instructors.
I'm currently still in the pre-work phase. Students of MDC are required to be on campus a month before the rest of the mobile development class joins. At first I wished this wasn't the case - solely so I could get an additional month of income to make up for the summer months where I won't be working- but now? I don't care that I'm missing out on an extra month of income, because this time feels invaluable.
Obviously I could gush about this program and how much I love it in perpetuity, but I still realize that this is the honeymoon phase - we were even told that this is the honeymoon phase! Shit is about to get real in the next few days. June 6th, we're getting rid of the training wheels and getting into the nitty gritty of Objective-C.
Objective-C. This language isn't exactly easy to learn, but I'm beginning to like it. In the beginning I constantly found myself thinking "I miss Ruby!" I feel like that I'm trying to understand the basics of the language so much that I'm not applying logic as well as I could, but this is changing - slowly, but surely.
One thing that I will be trying is writing about OC. I'll write about terms that I don't or didn't fully understand, as well as my thought process for some of the labs I complete.
As always, I could go on forever - about Objective-C and this program, but the rambling must stop somewhere. I've been negligent in my blogging (not like anyone is reading), but it is my goal to write 3 blog posts a week. Starting now.
Peace! CODE ON and CODE STRONG.
