I haven’t been blogging much or updating the log.md file on the repo. I’ve been LEARNING!
This week has been filled with Java homework, chapters to read, terms to review, MeetUps to attend, code to code, podcast to listen to and so much more.
Here’s a fun fact: the woman that Saron interviewed on Episode 125, replied to a tweet about a blog post I did on women in code. It was the SAME day I’d listened to the podcast. So, when she replied to me, the name was so familiar. I went back to the podcast and low and behold, it WAS her. We exchanged a few tweets as she spoke about the report my blog referenced. She suggested I read her book and reach out to her for encouragement whenever I needed it! What a super cool coincidence.
I’m taking this blog post to catch you all up on what I’ve done since day 21.

Day 23 • Started FCC bootstrap portfolio… work in progress
Day 24 • Still working on FCC bootstrap portfolio page. Also, Java readings for class.

Day 26 • I paid for Codecademy Pro and did a few projects: Continent & Cities app, Loan calc app & OOP lesson.
Day 27 • I did the Java Codecademy calculator APP project.
Day 29 • I had Java reading on Theory from my textbooks & I Started droid project.
Day 30 • Today was the Codecademy Droid project. I struggled a bit yesterday when I added the main method before the instructions asked me to. Today, did a rip and replace, working on it in NetBeans to keep the formatting pretty. At the end, it worked.
All and all, a super busy week. My next course (PHP/MySQL) starts Thursday, so I’ll probably keep my posts to once a week for the remainder of the challenge. Here’s to a great semester!
Here are some of the resources I used this week:
