Week 4 Day 4
Today our instructors left us to our own devices in the afternoon while they went off to do some team-building. The following objectives were written for us on the whiteboard:
- Research Open APIs
- Brainstorm Q1 projects
- Complete unfinished assignments/exercises
So, after lunch, we all sat down and got to work.
I found some really cool APIs on ProgrammableWeb. Here’s the list of ones that I saved:
Turns out I had more project/app ideas floating around in my head than I originally thought. Prior to Galvanize, I would tell myself that I needed to come up with a side project to teach myself development and have something to put on a resume, or else!!! But I had no idea where to start, and I felt really discouraged and hopeless. I almost convinced myself that development wasn’t something I could enjoy again. With the knowledge I’ve amassed at Galvanize so far, the desire to explore is causing some creativity to flow.
That’s it for now…so glad tomorrow is Friday!
