Speaking of types, there are so many! I’m fortunate to have an instructor team to guide me through the jungle here, working through use cases for certain types and explaining why others have been deprecated or are not applicable to certain situations. I also gained some enlightenment by working through Cory Foy’s koans repo, which helped understand–among other things–the intricacies of Array’s and why we rarely use them.
We’ve also spent a lot of time as a class discussing higher-level programming concepts. I really enjoy stretching my brain with theory, and have a bit of experience from college and my past career that I can apply to concepts like Entity Relationship Models and data structure. I’m excited to dig deeper into database languages like NoSQL and finally put together the complete picture of a full-stack application.
Tomorrow we’re going to work through building our own API. It’s crazy to think that we’re at this point after just a week of learning the syntax and philosophies of C#, but that’s encouraging more than anything else. Hopefully the other languages I plan to dig into over the next few months will get easier and easier the more I have under my belt.
Until next time, thanks for reading!
