Where did it all go wrong
Cutting edge stuff! and yet I hated it, it took the magic out of the process and after I finished that project I vowed never to touch it again! well until I was forced into it…
Learning from the ground up
I found it useful to recap the stuff I could remember and I learnt a few things too, but then I came across This this which does a good job of explaining why certain ways of doing things are better.
I imagine that all of this reading and learning will help a little but I don’t do that good with reading… practicals are always good, so next week will be all about actually doing something with Node.js
Making something good
One of the big reasons for learning a language is to use it, and by having a practical use for it it helps motivate you to do more, luckily there is a project that we started and I have purpose. My role is the web UI / server side of a larger piece of work, luckily I have some help… Hopefully in a month or so i’ll be able to give out some more details but it will be a little while to get it up and off the ground and sort of doing what it’s meant to in a prototype style. If we can pull it off it’s fair to say it will revolutionise how we currently work and provide a good platform the managing what we do, really looking forward to getting it to the basic prototype phase so we can start iterating on each bit until it’s perfect!
