Boot-camp Self Learning Clinic:My most recent challenging learning experience
Learning — The cognitive process of acquiring skill or knowledge as defined by the English dictionary. It could be as easy as going through some materials and grasping what you need to grasp. It also could be as difficult as watching different videos and still have no idea of the concept that they are trying to drive home. This is the situation i found myself my first day at Andela boot-camp.
Finally i was able to write my function after 4 hours if study and i began to test it using certain input parameters(I couldn’t get Jasmine to work yet) Now certain inputs weren’t generating the output i expected this posed yet another challenge i was refactoring my code-up until 2:00AM.
However I have decided to adopt a growth mindset persist in the face a challenge, i view the task as an opportunity to add to my skill set and grow. I am aware that failure is an investment with compound interest, even if i fail at learning; i simply need to clear my head and come back later on.
The expert in anything was once a beginner but this has been my most challenging learning experience up till date given the time frame. As the day goes I will keep you posted on my experiences on my journey to become a world-class developer.
