My Experience At Andela-Bootcamp So Far

Theodore Roosevelt said “believe you can and you are half way there…” and that’s how I came into the Andela-bootcamp, with a promise to myself to always approach every task with a can-do attitude. We were given our first home study tasks(coding labs and essay writing) to be delivered on or before 5.pm same day. I got busy with the coding labs immediately and before long the bugs began to roll in.It’s funny sometimes how difficult debugging a code you wrote could be, reminds me of a funny quote ; “If debugging is the process of removing software bugs, then programming must be the process of putting them in ”, funny but true. The tasks so far has really been engaging, demanding, and most of all informing. They have really pushed me to limits I never imagined I could reach before now.

On the other hand, the facilitators have been really helpful, carefully spelling out instructions and guidance on how to carry out our tasks. Even some of my fellow boot-campers sharing resources that have been helpful to them in solving a tasks. I came to the boot-camp with a mindset to apply the best of myself to every task given and so far no task has been anything short of that

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
Vince Lombardi

This quote depicts all that I believe the Andela boot-camp aims to develop in every boot-camper. So far so go, it’s been interesting, although I am stressed out at the moment, I just can’t wait for day 3 to come ( with it’s new challenges).
