Andela Cohort XI Boot Camp Day 1
It has been a challenging and exciting experience so far. Most people would not think so given that you are encouraged to seek help during assignments, but even when in this setting there is still difficulty to overcome.
One lesson I take from this day is that facing software development challenges is more fun and effective when you have someone to seek help from and someone to help. Engaging in both helping and being helped is a catalyst for self-development. It provides a thorough understanding the problem or challenge space.
Though I was not able to complete a particular assignment at the time, I am confident I was far closer to doing so than I would have been working alone due to the varied perspectives of fellow boot camp participants.
