A Few Weeks Ago

Oops, I wrote this on the train a few weeks ago and never got around to posting it. It was about finishing as much as I’m going to do of Code School for now, and I haven’t done much learning on my own since so I guess I don’t have much to add! Here’s what I wrote:

Well, I didn’t finish every single class on Code School but I did a whole lot of them and I’m taking a break now. Take a look at my “report card.”

I feel like those circles don’t quite do it justice! The Ruby and JavaScript circles are made up of ~11 slices for individual classes and each class has ~6 levels sometimes with multiple videos and many challenges per video. So yeah – that was a lot of work! Time well spent definitely. As I’ve said before, I’ve been continually impressed by the quality of Code School and would highly recommend it to anyone. I stopped short of doing the iOS classes (those are the empty pie) and will save those for another time, and I also still have a couple of electives left. So sometime in the future I’ll re-activate my subscription and do those classes plus do whatever new classes have been added between now and then of which there will definitely be a few. But for now, onward to other things!
