Dayton, Ohio (USA)
Now that Summer is almost over, it’s time for a postmortem review of my Summer of Code, including what I learned, my frustrations, what I enjoyed, and what I plan to do differently next time.
I’m wrapping up my first round of 100 Days of Code, making plans for my next round, and catching up on some long-overdue tasks.
I finally finished and submitted the Drum Machine project with all tests passing! Now there are just two projects left and five days to complete them.
I have finished the Markdown Previewer application! This puts me ahead of schedule. Plus, as a bonus, I’m getting more and more comfortable with React.js.
The Random Quote Generator v1.0 is now complete! I plan to make a few improvements later, but for now it has passed all of the tests and is good to go.
I started on the first front-end libraries project. It’s a simple quote generator that allows you to press a “new quote” button to display a new quote.
I have finished the last React and Redux challenges at Free Code Camp! Tomorrow I will be able to test my skills on the Front End Libraries projects.
Now that I’m not so burnt out, I have pinpointed the source of all this React and Redux overwhelm as stemming from all the tutorial hopping I’ve been doing.
