One Month of Lambda School

May 29, 2019

This week marks my sixth week of attending Lambda School's part-time Full Stack Web Development program.

So far, we've covered:

  • Basic HTML5/CSS
  • Git and basic CLI commands
  • Responsive Design and Preprocessors (LESS)
  • Basic JS (var/let/const, closure, callbacks, .map, .reduce, .filter)

In the Advanced CSS lectures/projects, I learned new responsive design and preprocessor best practices.

The Git section was straightforward - I'm now very comfortable checking out to new branches, committing & pushing changes, and making pull requests.

The JavaScript section was the most comfortable section so far (the majority of my self-study time was devoted to JS) but I'm excited to push through it and get to the React section. I've heard a lot about React and its popularity. I'm looking forward to understanding what all the hype is about.

This week we're covering the this keyword, constructor functions, the JS Prototype Object, and the class keyword.

The instructors have been great so far and very thorough with answering questions.

Also got moved to a new PM group. My new PM and group members are friendly and motivated to share and review our code during our bi-weekly stand ups.

Overall its been a great experience and I'm looking forward to the React modules!
