However after a few days battling through conventions, functions and incorrect bracket placements, it somehow started to click. This is something makers had always said loud and proud, and something i was not quite sure how it would happen - “we teach you to code, not a specific language”. And to my shock, it happened. After a few days, conventions and processes I had learnt in the previous 4 weeks did in fact translate into a foundation of coding knowledge!
The challenge of the week was to build a thermostat, that responded to a variety of functions. This was then tied to a front end userface which controlled the logic of the thermostat via the magic of jQuery.
It looks like this process is clicking, and the structure grows on itself each week, dare i say it is starting to make sense now!
Next week is our first group project week which i’m sure will brings its own new challenges, i’m looking forward to seeing what can be achieved when 4 of us crack heads and code!
As always, wish me luck!
