Right. So. I haven’t been posting much or reading much lately. Where’ve I been?
Web developer school.
I’m pretty much pants at design, so I’m attempting to learn Ruby. Serious programming. This is so not HTML. It’s a lot more fun than HTML, although the learning curve is much higher.
I seriously don’t know what I’m doing.
This week, I finally learned the difference between local and instance variables. It’s not that hard. I don’t know why I didn’t know the difference before. I probably should have figured it out way before classes even started. We’re starting Rails in a week and I’m still shaky on almost every concept in Ruby.
Three weeks ago I wouldn’t have knows what to do with the Bob the teenager exercise (above) at all, so I suppose that’s progress. I can debug things, but I have no idea what to do with them or really why exactly they work.
I’ll figure it out sometime.
My instructor encouraged us all to blog (our Ruby notes from class? Cool things we do? I don’t have any of those yet). I already have this blog, though, so I’m not sure if I’m really interested in picking up another. I suppose I could use my tumblr, but does anyone even read that? I don’t know. I don’t know if this is a good place to write, either. Maybe I’ll write about the softer side of programming here and leave the highly technical things for tumblr.
Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
