Cheating on my girlfriend with APIs.
I’m in love. I have butterflies in my stomach, my hands are clammy and I can’t string together a sentence to save my life.
Today I met API’s and developed a simple console app that takes user input to get the weather from their input zip codes…then write the data to a database. I need to work on refactoring some of my code out into methods, but everything works right now.
I swear…every time my code compiles the first time and my hopeful expected results come to fruition it is like magic…man is that a good feeling.
API’s are awesome and I feel there is an endless amount of possibilities I can exploit with this new knowledge. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I am extremely glad I left my old life behind.
The concepts we have been working on in class are all coming together and I feel like I understand more than I don’t. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still making some simple mistakes and forget how to do simple things from time to time, but in 3 weeks, we have covered an intense amount of ground. I’m not crying myself to sleep anymore and the constant waking anxiety is gone for the most part. I am past like and am straight up in love with C#.
