Hello all! This week I want to talk about my coding bootcamp experience so far. It’s been really cool! :D

1 We’re in week 9 of 12 and I feel like I’ve learned a lot. The time is really going by quickly; it’s hard to believe it’s almost over.

I tried my best to prepare myself beforehand, but I don’t think I realised how fast the pace would be. Every weekday we have at least 2 to 3 assignments due, so that’s over 100 assignments by now. (Some are short, some take a lot longer.)

I’m in a class of 10 students, and it’s a very positive environment. Everyone is here because they want to be here, to learn and improve. A few classmates are brand-new to coding, and a few have a lot of experience with coding and advanced concepts. It’s easy to ask each other for help, it’s really nice.

2 We’ve covered a lot of different areas, but I feel I’ve learned the most about these three topics:

Python and Django:
-Having never worked with Django before, I now have a lot of experience writing Python for the back-end.

Big O Notation and Algorithms:
-At first it was a very alien topic, but I’m understanding the concept (if not quite how to apply it yet).

Axios and AJAX:
-In the past I’ve had difficulty getting AJAX requests to work, but now I feel more comfortable with them.

Happy Coding!
