What a hoot. Completed #html course in #treehouse. Working on #css next. Now wondering whether i should start with #ruby rather than #php. On the writing front, started a post which i just couldn’t finish. #Writing takes on a life of it’s own sometimes; so much for planning. Looking forward to a weekend of #hustle, keeping calm and carrying on
Took the weekend off from my #coding lessons. Looking forward to doing some more tomorrow. Did a lot of #writing (or fussing about my writing) today. Tomorrow I’ll be back in the #Treehouse. I have a couple more trial days left - amongst other options, looks like could be worth the sign up.
Feeling quite tired today so didn’t want to get stuck into work first thing. Did some more #Swift learning on #Treehouse instead. Today I went over
structs, object-oriented stuff like classes, initializers, and subclassing, and the differences between value types and reference types.
Just three sections left to get through:
Still struggling with #Swift, so I went back to #Treehouse today and watched some of the videos. It definitely helps to have a mixture of actually writing code and reading/watching explanations and theory about it.
Trouble is, I always want to write code that’s way too far ahead of what I know so far, so I get frustrated. But anyway, I started a syntax cheat sheet of my own today while watching Treehouse videos, so I practised writing out some basic stuff like
tuples. Hopefully my own cheat sheet will make for a quick and useful reference while writing #Swift code.
Did some solid #writing work on my first #Ghost magazine piece today, and got a better idea of what structure might work well thanks to a chat with @josh. Spent a couple of hours tonight doing #treehouse #swift tutorials to get a better feel for the syntax and common tasks, like setting up initializers. #code #ios
Started a new #ios project in #swift this morning. It took aaaages to write any code because not only is the syntax different, the way things work is often different. Found it really slow and difficult so I’m going to do the #treehouse swift course to get more comfortable with it before coming back to my project. #code
