Ahhhhhhhhh glad this exists because it's reminding me that I still haven't made any progress with my Python course (learning loops now) 🙆‍♀️ But I did help a colleague with an article where you make a binary search tree with Python and worked on some property-based tests written in Python. So still learning, but it feels weird to do that but not know how to write a loop 🙈

Fundamentals are super important, but I keep getting distracted from really learning them.

Hi all!

Just started coding: very new, very exciting!.

Any tips on how to start studying algorithms?

To give myself some background I'm doing CS50x and I'm a little stuck in week 3, where we have to implement some! How did you start on learning the implementation of algorithms? It's funny how some things seem so straightforward (understanding what happens and the theory) but when applying them they baffle you!

Help? How did you tackle this?

Thanks guys!

I haven't read it myself, but I've heard good things about the Algorithms in a Nutshell book

Thanks.

Finding content in spanish is harder than it should. I'm just glad I can do something to make it a little bit easier.

I made myself a portfolio website to store projects in. It's at trainingwingsworkshop.com, and I'd love feedback if anybody has any! I like the way it came out very much (though I'm planning to add a graphic/animation to the main page in the future) but I was surprised at how much I struggled with adding flex elements; I thought I understood them pretty well until I tried to use them to do things I actually wanted. I like to think I learned some things, though?

I like this! A few points of feedback I have:

  • Social media links would be clutch inside your "About" section as well
  • The front page is blank - I'm not sure if my browser is loading it right?
  • Your background is nice, I like the color transition
  • I like how your content is aligned to the left yet your nav menu and social media are on the right
  • Good color selection for :hover

Thanks for checking it out, and the tips! The front page is currently blank besides the title, but I am planning to add an animated graphic once I get that working.
