What a day! My 3rd day experience at Andela
Then came the task of creating a simple command line application that consumes a public API. I was initially confused on how to go about it, but after going through some online materials and discussing with a friend, I had quite an appreciable knowledge of the topic. I had to install node application as well “request” framework. I went for an API that has a simple documentation. It took some while before I could get some sample syntax on how to place a call to the API webservice, and also, some more time to get the codes to run without errors. I was eventually able to place a GET and POST request to the API web service and also received and perused the response from the service from my Command line. I felt great.
One thing I have observed from this bootcamp so far is that I am expected to figure out the solutions to my problems myself; as fast as possible. We were expected to learn new stuffs and also apply the knowledge to solve certain problems within a short time. This is quite demanding and exciting. I appreciate its real world’s relevance
