i started a bootcamp and now think about this post like 5 times a day


hows the camp going


i really should have worked harder to put together a group for our group projects earlier so i didn't get teamed up w/ two overconfident bros that want to build a cryptocurrency tracker. it's due next wednesday and i feel like getting anything done that doesn't get fucked up is like pulling teeth. neither of them could be convinced by either the instructor or i they had to learn about github merges for the first two days. it's the weekend and i don't wanna dwell on this so i'ma cut it short but fuuuuck the past coupla days have kinda sucked.

i love everything else tho for the most part. i've worked w/ close to everyone in the class on various things and i think the only other unpleasant person was the libertarian teenager. there's free sodas and i drink like 6 coke zeros a day. i think i'm enjoying it more than any college class i've ever taken just cuz you're building shit all day. i always knew i loved coding ever since i took an html class in undergrad and shouldve done it a long time ago.

i came in this thread just to say i really enjoy looking at visual studio code all day. i never imagined this would be aesthetically pleasing but it absolutely is.

this never got any better. their steadfast refusal to learn how to use github 7 weeks into the course blew my mind. they could barely convinced to push the final build up to the server right before we were about to present. they deleted all the files we had on our repository multiple times despite both me and the instructor telling them not to. immediately after we presented they came up and asked me if we could "delete the repo and start again clean"???????

anyway ngl i feel pretty fucking good about my abilities as a programmer after surviving that and creating something presentable. i feel like having a project that went smoother in any way shape or form and wasn't about crypto would've been great.

in fact, whenever i need to commit new code, i just delete the repo and push to a new one

this is insane i feel like the bootcamp should have forced you to learn git but still

getting bored working remotely, going to start applying to some local companies... unfortunately there aren't very many that aren't fintech! Going through Cracking the Coding Test has made me really glad that I had such a broad/theoretical comp. sci course and I've been lucky to work with bright and experienced people who know a ton about designing systems, so hopefully both of those will be a good base for whatever interviews I end up with.

they did. first week even. i had neve rused it before and i picked it up immediately. i guess we didn't learn merges because we weren't working in groups yetr but still. also both me and the instructor tried to explain to them how everything worked multiple times and it seemed like it never stuck. like they just kept deciding that merging was too complicated and gave up. over and over. same thing w/ the deleting files thing. both me and the instructor told them that no employer is going to give a shit about you having "messy code" in your github but alas...

there was a point where they were just not contributing at all but they did end up contributing a shitload over the last day or so so i can't complain about that too much. we still couldve done everything in like a day or two had everyone known how to use github. i can't imagine my next two projects not going smoother.

i dunno if i complained about rails in this thread but I like it a lot now. having a certain way of doing everything is p comforting

we took out react/coffescript and replaced it with haml/jquery and now are looking at vue/webpack wrapper or whatever and that's kinda annoying. but our component system or whatever is on point and it is super fulfilling to not have to worry about styles getting overwritten when you make a change & exactly where/what a js module is

i guess that's true. i've tried using git on reaper sessions to ok success, but sometimes it gets confusing. i've never bothered to try with like, ableton, but it would be really nice to have. maybe somebody has already figured it out.

edit: looks like someone tried it https://medium.com/@mark_henry/ableton-live-git-a-match-made-in-someplace-or-the-great-ableton-git-experiment-5a20dfe2734c

Git is generally not amazing for large data since it keeps all the versions of your repo locally. I have anecdotally heard that designers working with programmers are not big fans of git because of this.

These people sound like dinguses but I do think merging is a pain in the ass. We try to minimize the need for large merges at my job by pushing everything to the remote trunk, but that works best in combination with also writing things in small chunks that can be code reviewed and pushed one commit at a time, which is definitely a learned skill. I think the nightmare of git merging/rebasing is best illustrated by the impossibility of remembering which version is "ours" and "theirs" for git checkout when you just want to keep one version.

yeah i got that, and the couple of times we actually merged sucked but at the same time it... seemed like something you should try and buck up and learn when you're in school to learn coding for 8 hours a day.

the instructor also encouraged writing things in small chunks/code reviewing but neither of those things ended up happening either. i think i had to have made 90-95% of the commits.

i just had a small project w/ two other people coding game of life under a certain ruleset today and that went so much smoother and was much more enjoyable and i feel good again.

Finally tracked down a bug in a personal project that I had started a couple of months ago, and given up in despair when the basic functionality didn't work. I felt like a genius and a dumbass simultaneously-- there was a rogue _ in front of a variable name that my linter didn't flag as an error, and that I somehow didn't see.
