With the first phase of my Software Engineering bootcamp coming to a close at Flatiron School, I thought I would update you on what I did over the last two weeks.
First, I completed my first code challenge on the first try! This was a huge accomplishment and it felt like a giant weight was lifted off of my shoulders once it was completed.
The week after that was project week. I was paired up with a couple of my favorite peers, and we developed a one page app that drew from a public API of cocktail recipes. We added a search function so the user can search recipes by name or ingredient, as well as a favorites list that successfully updates the server.
Check out the github repository here.
The last couple of weeks weren't without their struggles, though.
Imposter syndrome hit hard. Being paired with perhaps the two most experienced students in my cohort definitely made me feel a bit unprepared in comparison to them. I felt lost at times, and at others completely overwhelmed.
