This seems like a good time to post an update.
After my last post, I evaluated the rails project I had just completed, and decided I wanted to move on to something else, rather than trying to improve it. Somehow I came across freecodecamp.com, and decided to take it on. I have been making good progress. The background I had from the Odin Project meant that I had a lot of the basics down already, so the first part, 200 hours of lessons, was basically just me checking “I’ve completed this” or else going to codecademy and doing a quick review.
The next section is 200 hours of practice. I started on April 29, and I’m almost halfway through. It has not been 100 hours, more like maybe 30. In the meantime, I’ve noticed that you can do just about anything with if statements and for loops.
Finally, I deployed my check register to heroku (even though it’s ugly and super basic), and updated my personal webpage at williamrwilson.com.
