I’m thoroughly impressed with what we’ve been able to slowly put together this week. We created a simple ‘To-Do’ application where we were able to add tasks, delete them, and filter them by completed, active, and deleted tasks. I know this sounds really simple, but this was a huge accomplishment for the class – creating a functional application. By the end of the week, we were challenged to create a simple IMDB app that had substantial functionality. The app was able to show a list of movies. You could then click on a specific movie, which would open to a new page listing all of the movies details. We were also able to filter all the movies by rating, title, and description. Again, probably sounds simple, but I promise, everyone was challenged at some point in completing this project.
Every week, I’m always excited about the potential that the concepts we just learned can have and translate to in our own personal projects. If I wanted to create a personal website/blog, I’d already be able to create a functional website to post photos and content for someone to click through and read, displayed just the way I want it. When I first signed up for this course, I expected to learn how to do just that. I’m so impressed with the content (it’s a TON of content), that’s being taught in this course and how much more I’ll know leaving this course than I had originally expected. Sure, I won’t be an expert developer in just 10 weeks, but I’ll be exposed to so much content and concepts in order to continue learning and growing as a developer.
Next week, we learn about how to ‘talk’ to servers, and to create functionality such as ‘logging in’ to a site!
