Week three has come and gone, and it is with great joy that I am able to report that I am just as excited to be in school as I was the first day. Coming from the 9-5 office life, this feels like a vacation – but not the kind of vacation that you come back from and have to ease yourself back in to "the real world". This is the kind of vacation that rejuvenates your soul and inspires you to work harder with every day and every challenge that comes with it. This week we went over "walking the DOM", jQuery, and started our first attempt at building a game. I won't bore you to death with the technical details but I will tell you that making a fully functional Tic Tac Toe game was bad-ass!
The moral of the third-week story is, don't let the frustration that inevitably comes with trying your hand at a new skill deter you. I am incredibly grateful that I was strong enough in my convictions to take this risk, and moreso appreciative of the tools that LEARN has provided me. The transparent environment coupled with the consistent encouragement is the exact recipe one needs in order to see this through. Excited to see what dish we cook up next!
