Journey in hacktiv8 (part 1)
This post is not good, in terms of everything, I know, I gladly accept advice on how to write a good post. You have been warned.
Hacktiv8 got 3 immersive phases, but before entering immersive phase, we’re going to have some introduction phase first, which is called phase 0. Phase 0 aims to introduce programming to every student that is going to study in the next phase (i forgot to tell you that hacktiv8 accepts all kind of education background, so they need to do this phase 0).
In the first week, we studied about the basics of the web, which is HTML and CSS, we use online learning platform to study the basics, I gladly follow the subjects, because it is necessary to learn from the start, probably I’ve missed something when i was studying by myself. But mostly, I’m aiming to make some friends. There is really lot of reason about why they join, some because they really want to study, some because they want to get the guaranteed job (yeah, there is job guarantee exists, I also forgot to tell you this), there is also entrepreneur who wants to seek good talent for their company.
The third and fourth week is mostly the same like the second week, mastering the usage of the basics. Although, if you already know the basics and want to know something other than that, you can ask the instructor directly.
That is the my current experience so far. I’m currently on my fourth week of phase 0, in fifth week, we’re going to learn recursive functions, regex, and objects, I will write the post about the review of the fifth week when I’m done with it.
