Day 16: Marathon Day

Today was a marathon day! But it was very zen-like and peaceful.

Although, this is Day 16, it really represents Day 48 because I started on June 23rd.

Day 16 is really the number of  major study days, if that makes sense.

Rather than list the modules that I did (because I jumped around a bit), I mentioned that I was studying from 10AM up to 1AM (that’s 15 hours!), but there were a few breaks in between. So in terms of actual studying time, it might have been anywhere from 11 hours to 13.5 hours.

Although my overall plan involved learning Solidity first before moving on to other programming languages like Javascript, Web3, command line (if that’s a language), I decided to go back to the skipped modules in UD3 that talked about Javascript and command line.

I’m glad I did. Although I don’t know the difference between many of the command line programs (if that’s what they’re called) or terminals (which is what the instructor, Grider called them, I decided to use Git Bash,  because it was suggested inside of the course (UD3), to use Git Bash if you’re using windows

As far as a code editor, I decide to use Sublime Text.

To get a sense of the modules that were covered (even though I said I wasn’t going to list them, it was the green X’s.

I started with Mod80 through 85. Then Skipped to 95 where he said something like, “before moving on to the next module, make sure you know React. If you don’t go to the Appendix (Mod234 – 266) where he teaches React. I did that. Then it became apparent that I couldn’t fully follow it because I skipped modules that discussed Javascript and command line…soooooooo, I went BACK to the skipped modules that discussed that (starting at Mod33).

So the plan is to finish these skipped modules (up until Mod64) and then go BACK to the React Appendix (starting at Mod234).

I do notice on the sheet there is a second set of Skipped Modules (86  – 94). Not sure if I’m going to go through them first before finishing up with the Appendix. We’ll see.

Until, next time!
