I'm back - with regained confidence actually.I'm not going to lie, the last two weeks have been quite tough. That's why I haven't had the energy to update my weekly review. But instead of doing a weekly review, I'll try my best to review these last two weeks in an honest and open way.I’m already in week 4 and a new group just started week 1- so I guess that makes me somewhat of a semi-senior at Codaisseur?(hehe)
"I've learned so much and actually grown as an individual"
It always sounds cheesy when you say stuff like that. But I'll be honest, when I got "red" on the assignment of week 2, I felt quite low on energy Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. I felt frustrated that I couldn't implement what I've learned during the week and that I didn't get the result I wanted. I've always been a hard-working person, I always come prepared for exams and I'll be super disappointed if I don't prepare myself enough for an exam, a presentation or something like that. Week 2 I felt something different - I felt so frustrated and actually a little "dumb". During the week leading up to weekend 2 - I felt like I understood the topics of the week and could "deliver" during class. When we are doing the coding challenges, I was pretty independent - or as independent a beginner can be I guess. When getting the assignment I understood the whole picture, but got stuck during each step and eventually started to panic as the hours flew by. That week after (last week) I pulled my teacher aside and discussed my issues, how I fail to understand the instructions as they are written in a more technical/programming English - which I'm not used to yet. We agreed on a strategy of working for the rest of the week and during this Saturday - I felt newfound confidence, a feeling of “I got this.” Even though I didn't understand the questions cristal clear, I knew how to look up each problem and how to read errors. I didn't panic and that helped a lot. My teacher said that he was proud of the progress I've made and I must say that I was proud of myself as well.This week is project week as I mentioned and each day I feel more and more confident in the role of a programmer.xx Evelina
