I’ve always known about the React.js Tic Tac Toe tutorial, but never really understood it completely. I took it upon myself to follow each and every step from the beginning, and boy did I learn a lot.
What I didn’t realize was that at the end, there are a few extra tasks for anyone to do — no answers provided! I decided take those on as well. And as my brother always suggests: “you should write a blogpost on what you learned”… way easier said than done.

Hey Kevin, how are you feeling today?
I feel good and excited to learn more everyday. Recently I’ve been focused on React and React-Native (forever grateful for my brother pointing me in this direction!), and how many of these technologies that I use connect under-the-hood.
How does it feel, looking back?
June, 2018 is when I began this “Rebooting Life” series based around programming studies. I’m glad to have embarked on this journey. …
This post is going be the merging point of two loose ends in my life, and an attempt to recap things I’ve learned for my own understanding.
In recent days, a lot of things have in my day-to-day life have come to a very stable state. Maybe too stable.
Has become very routine for some time now, and not in a good way. Climb, train, pray for good weekend weather, get tired, rest, worry about diet, repeat… I’m confident that progress is still happening, but the ups and downs are so drastic that it’s always hard to tell.
A Dependency Manager
Ok… What is a Dependency Manager?
I guess this makes sense to me, given where I stand with programming.
I was following someone’s guide on making an Xcode app with no storyboard (turns out it was not useful). I got to the section talking about dealing with constraints and how something like SnapKit could help. I assumed constraints could be a b****, given your different iPhone sizes, so I did not think twice about looking into SnapKit… Turns out…
So... Ashamedly, I stepped out of line at work. My boss responded in two ways: 1.) She gave me a much deserved talk down + written warning and 2.) proceeded to notify the CTO to start getting me involved with our iOS operations. (Remember, I’m the Receptionist/Barista/Social Media… so I’ve done no coding work, but I had previously mentioned I wanted to know more about our iOS operations)
July 11th, 2018. I was given access to our GitHub repo to essentially “play around” without affecting others. This was my first time seeing what a serious iOS project looked like. It…
…since I started this Medium series to log my own progress into the world of coding. It really feels like forever and I feel like I’ve learned nothing. I’ve reached a hump where I’ve lost interest in everything yet I still want to carry on, but simply don’t know what direction to take. There is still so much I don’t know, and I don’t even know what I don’t know.
I woke up and cooked breakfast for my girlfriend and myself while she watered her garden… buckwheat pancakes with flaxseed meal, and eggs! Afterwards, I poked at one CodeWars SWIFT kata then went off to the climbing gym.
I completed the kata successfully but it was in a very basic manner, utilizing pretty much only
else if statements because it was all I could pull out of my brain in the morning, but I knew in the back of my head it could be re-completed in a cooler, prettier manner. I thought it like bouldering: each extra unnecessary line of…
“derek said they’re cooler now”
I started with W3Schools and just mindlessly-mindfully took notes, if that makes any sense.
SIDE NOTE: My girlfriend, Connie, reminded me that part of the reason why I write these Medium posts are for the sake of…
