The final hour is quickly approaching, with one enemy left. Release 0.4, the final assignment in my Open Source Development class. It's the big boy. We're to add a feature to any project of our choosing, and this feature cannot be a simple translation or minor bug fix. Let us proceed.
And that's the plan, and with a bit of luck (and lots of planning), hopefully the pieces will naturally fall into place.
So many times in college I've questioned why I'm here, how I got here, and where I'm heading. Are you really growing if you're not the dumbest person in the room? Can you really increasing your bipedal plumage if you're not consistently (and adequately) challenged? Intimidation is a non-issue when contrasted next to bravery when moving forward. Git push yourself.
Melodramatic, I know, but I've come to the realization that this course is not about programming; that's secondary. OSD600 is primarily about your growth as a developer, and thus your growth as a person.
We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave.... So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in
Las VegasToronto and look West, and with the right kind of eyes, you can almost see the high-water mark—that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.
Edit: Super interesting post here.
