First off – I got into launch academy! I got the email today after almost 2 weeks of stressing about if/when I would hear. I’m really happy to say that I made it in, and I’ll be part of the 24th cohort. Now no rest for the wicked: I have (a lot of) things to learn!
3.5h Tonight was a lot of small questions and searches. I looked at the launch academy syllabus and put everything that I haven’t learned or heard of on a list. I’m not looking to learn everything beforehand, but I do want to have a good understanding of what the tech does and why we use it. There were big things that I knew a bit about like rails and other completely unknown things like rspec, yarn, and active record. I’m going to put in some time getting more info about all of them and then I’ll have a bit more background when we finally get there in class.
I also kept going on my js notes. I’m not sure if I should look at this as a project that will have an end or just part of studying. I also have been thinking about making up some flash cards. A flash card-type iphone app could be best (and I looked into it) but I may go old school (note cards) just for the feel of it.
