Catapults Git jQuery
June 24th, 2016
Have you ever tried to create a new game or a mobile app? Imagine combining those two tasks. It’s a challenging process that requires numerous steps: develop an idea, sketch it out, create a testable wireframe, fix the bugs, pull your hair out in frustration and beat your chest with sweet satisfaction when you succeed.
That’s what our Catapult students experienced this week—minus the hair pulling and chest pounding.
“I didn’t have any idea how to even start JQuery,” shared Michael. “I was really happy with myself when I finished it and it worked.”
The process taught them several valuable lessons.
“Coding requires a lot of organization and very flawless concentration,” Abobakr reflected in his student journal. “Without those two things something as little as spacing a word will cause code not to function.”
“The font on my portfolio randomly changed from the font I wanted to a different, very ugly font,” Jake chimed in. “The issue didn’t seem to have a cause, and it really bugged me. Eventually the problem vanished. Sometimes the best thing to do is just take a break from all the debugging.”
High five to Nigel and all of our Catapult students for scoring well on their aptitude test.
Check back next Friday to see what students learned in their last week of coding bootcamp with Eleven Fifty Academy.
