Hey everyone ! How are you doing ?
I just finished the 4th week of my coding bootcamp and it is time for a quick recap.
Days are getting longer and topics are more and more advanced, but I am still really motivated 🔥
Those two last week were very intense and so interesting! We had the chance to work with a very young startup that offered us to build a landing page for their website.
Tech it easy is a brand-new media located in Bruxelles that aims to share news and tutorials for anyone interested in IT.
We worked as groups of 3 for two weeks in order to present a landing page that they would be susceptible to deploy and improve their online visibility.
That was challenging for me to work with other people for the first time but I enjoyed myself a lot.
The most important thing I learned this week is team work. It is not an easy task to organize a proper workflow, make sure everybody follows naming conventions, etc....
I dived in bundling tools such as ParcelJS and Webpack and managed to build my custom react workflow that supports SASS and TypeScript.
Something I also learned about is the TDD approach, I wrote my first Units and integration test with Jest & Enzyme. If possible, I would like to implement tests in my future projects.
Finally, I started using TypeScript. For some reason it was a little of a scary topic for me but it is easier to get into than I thought, and I am looking forward to diving deeper in.
We are supposed to start learning React on Monday, I am really excited to improve and practice all the knowledge I gathered so far.
Thank you for reading and see you next week!
