Lambda functions are awesome. They are small containers of code which respond to events and run. Resources are automatically managed by Amazon. Lambda's are very low cost and provide an awesome way to set up a serverless app architecture.
The mind is a new dog tugging on your leash as you try to walk it. It wants to smell every flower, chase every butterfly, and pee on every fire hydrant. It is zig-zagging back and forth as you try to walk it in a straight line. It is stubborn. You have to train it to make it better.
QUESTION: If you were handed a problem right now and were asked to write some code to solve it, where would you start?
Over the past few weeks, we have been able to dive into unfamiliar code bases and figure them out in order to add meaningful features.
Weeks 5 & 6 were my favorites so far. I am starting to feel like a real full-stack developer, and I can see how all the pieces are fitting together. I feel like I could start one of the many app ideas I have had for some time and could build a viable product in a reasonable amount of time. That feeling is pretty awesome
Looking back at weeks three and 4 is a good and somewhat strange feeling. We learned a ton and I still have a hard time believing I just went through that magical storm of accelerated learning, excessive caffeine, late nights and constant accomplishments.
Call, apply, and bind are all Function prototype methods. What does that mean?
I came into Hack Reactor on Day 1 expecting that it would be the hardest thing I have ever done. I was right, but not in the way I expected.
Several months ago, I applied to Hack Reactor's remote full-time immersive software engineering boot camp. I got in.
