Yet another Day at Andela Boot camp
When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
The proverb has been on my mind all day. Learning new stuff and having too implement them is not a walk in the path.My mind is urging me to explore these new paths, my heart says the same and since it is a tie I definitely will.
Today the expected skills included Oriented Programming and Test Driven Development. Despite having little knowledge on OOP, test Driven Development came as a challenge. I have never written tests to any code any the past and to add on it never worked on flask before.So could you imagine having to learn all that and implement?
Fortunately, thanks to internet it is not mean on resources. Test Driven Development is actually of great advantage, including the quality of your code improving, but also clarity and focus on what it is that you are trying to achieve, and the way in which you will achieve it. TDD also works seamlessly with agile development. I ended up learning a lot I am not a guru but I am leading the journey of being one.
This journey is for the tough and only those with will to learn. That is what I tell myself to keep me going because who would not want to gain new knowledge.I may not be tough but I am always willing to try, learn and give my best.It has been two days and i can handle challenges better, work a lot better under pressure and am always on my toes because every second counts. I am maintaining the high spirit because in the long run, there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
