AndelaKE Day4

TIA — This is Andela. Thomas, a class One fellow joined us today. From his speech and positivism, I could tell that no one past the sieve of Andela up to and including the boot camp is low on esteem, energy and speaking out. Truly transformational.

Aside from the usual, ‘Andela with the ball’ we played a very interesting game that focused on having your mind in the moment, keen on what others are doing and prioritizing tasks; in a nutshell: Team Dynamics. That, did it for the soft skills today since we did not have Food for thought session. However, I still consider that I am learning soft skills every time, at class, over lunch, on the corridors and writing here on Medium.

Today, I got a light-bulb moment. Considering Godson’s jokes and personality, livening the class; it is quite a challenge engaging us for hours. The team in general, even Joshua, head of Operations Kenya. I am taking notes, mental notes, rather; I’m up for the challenge.

Code wise, I learnt a lot. The home curriculum just did an intro. Getting off my seat once or twice to confirm or inquire was necessary. The boot camp is providing an environment of smart, lively individuals that I would to team up on projects beyond they being friends already.

Other Class One fellows joined us in the afternoon to help us on a task Godson had left us with. This presented an opportunity of interacting with them one-on-one. Like Nandaa and Godson, they stressed on the spacing and indentation (the syntactically best practices). The case of student becoming a better teacher. To add on, one told us, “ It takes programmers to write code that computers can understand, but it takes a good programmer to write code that fellow humans can understand.”

The Andelabs are wonderful exercises to practice with and working on them with Jee, Festus and Griffin among others beyond working hours was awesome.
