What was your win this week?

What was your win for the week? It can be coding related or not!

  • Did you start a new course and make progress?
  • Did you attend a virtual meetup?
  • Did you start a coding streak?

Excited to hear about everyone’s wins! :partying_face: :dancer:t2:

Coding-related: I finished the Files module on the DS path and started the medical insurance portfolio project. (though, went a different way and used pandas, numpy, scipy and seaborn to analyze the data).

I can’t think of anything non-coding related. :thinking:
Well, unless you count me writing out Christmas cards and mailing them. :joy: :santa:t2:

What was my win? WHAT WAS MY WIN?!

Open at your own risk.

A WHOLE TRAILER FOR THE LOKI SHOW WAS RELEASED. I was expecting to get some pictures of Tom Hiddleston on set, and instead we got A WHOLE FREAKING TRAILER?! AND I WAS JUST ABOUT TO GO TO SLEEP? (LOKI’S SMALL HORNS HELMET HELP ME I CAN’T BREATHE AND THEN WHEN HE TURNED INTO TOM HIDDLESTON I MEAN HE IS TOM HIDDLESTON BUT HIS SHORT HAIR OMG I CAN’T).
It felt like my cheeks were about to explode of how much I smiled (and screamed) :star_struck: :sob: :exploding_head:
I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited IN MY WHOLE LIFE.

Then I went to sleep (kinda) because I couldn’t take so much excitement, and today I find ALL THESE NEW DISNEY AND MARVEL ANNOUNCEMENTS?! AND THE NEW WANDAVISION AND THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER TRAILERS?! HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO HANDLE ALL OF THIS?!?!?! :star_struck: :sob: :sparkling_heart: :star2:

I AM NOT SORRY FOR MY ENTHUSIASM (but maybe for the caps…I am sorry for all the caps.)

Oh and I made some progress with the Computer Science path, and took some notes about an IoT course I’m taking.

I had a pretty fun week. I made stable progress on the Full Stack path and the Data science path. I hosted this week’s focus session and met a couple of new faces this time which was fun! I also started with Intro to Phaser.JS course on Codecademy.

I watched the first episode of season 4 of Attack on Titans and I’ve say to say I was impressed with it. And also sad because Haikyuu S4 will end soon.

Overall, a stable week with a lot of learning.

I’m on a three week streak and 31% of the way through the Front End Developer course.

When I first read this I thought, “Huh? It’s only Wednesday.”
So, yeah, time flies… :sweat_smile:

My win is continuing to make progress in the Front-End Dev program and not giving up when I don’t understand something.

I sped through the course related to learning React (finished the final project), created a shopping list in Angular for fun, and successfully linked and compiled my first project in C++.

I improved my skills in PHP (created a working validation form), and uploaded my portfolio on to my github.io pages. I no longer feel like my presentation of my portfolio projects to potential employers is hindering me in getting hired (; If anything, it is my code that is bad!

Just kidding. But it’s been a good week.

I graduated from college with a computer science degree this week! :checkered_flag: :white_check_mark: :dark_sunglasses:
I wrote my first lines of code here on codecademy believe it or not. I loved it so much, I decided to take a risk and go to school for computer science. At the time I was scared because I was in my mid twenties and it seemed impossible, more of a dream than reality. Three and a half years of hard work and lots of weird math I never thought I would understand later, I did it! It feels so great and I encourage anyone who can - take a shot at your dreams
