Decided to start learning to #code. Partly spurred by an unexpected but very gracious web development client. Trying out a few code schools. Scattergun approach. Joined Team Treehouse as a complete #beginner, completed 2 initial modules.

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:

  • closures
  • protocols
  • delegates

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 likefuncs, enums, and tuples. Hopefully my own cheat sheet will make for a quick and useful reference while writing #Swift code.

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
