So 2020. Whew. Its almost over. What a wild and crazy ride its been. Please stay where you're at and don't follow us into 2021.
So boom! unemployed and 2 kids at home all of the time. I apply at jobs forever, with no luck. Going nowhere, watching kid shows all day, screaming baby in my ear, I'm going crazy. But at night, when everyone is asleep, I pull out the laptop and start coding again. Learning React.
My mind starts exploding. Suddenly it all starts making more sense, the universe unfolding in my minds eye. I'm thinking about code all day: how to solve problems I ran into last night, how to better do algorithms, new websites/apps I want to do. I'm finally progressing again. Finally, unemployment and covid quarantine don't seem so bad anymore.
Once the basic concepts are out of the way, I get into harder territory of object oriented programming. I switch to learning java with the help of Codecademy and learn through there. I stay on java for a few months because I really want to learn how to develop android apps. Luckily the first job that I got paid okay and didn't require much of me, so for a few hours a week I got to follow along with youtube videos to build a Java portfolio.
Anyways, I loved it, it gave me the daily confidence boost in the morning that I needed, and most days I didn't find them as hard as leetcode. Here are my solutions:
2: Deposit Profit
3: Chunky Monkey
4: Century From Year
5: Reverse a String
6: Sort By Length
7: Count Vowel Consonant
8: Rolling Dice
--These DOM manipulating challenges took me forever. Learning React made me forget all of the basics. Good refresher--
9: Sum odd Fibonacci Numbers
10: Adjacent Elements Product
11: Avoid Obstacles
--I'll admit, I had to look this one up. I solved it myself, but the instructions were not very clear--
12: Valid Time
13: Extract Each Kth
14: Maximal Adjacent Difference
16: Insert Dashes
17: Different symbols Naive
18: Array Previous Less
--This was another not quite clear instructions. Once I figured it out though it went pretty easy.--
19: Alphabet Subsequence
20: Domain Type
21: Sum of 2
--I think this actually is a leetcode problem--
22: Extract Matrix Column
23: Social Media Post
--I REALLY wanted to solve this one differently. Have it somehow count the characters in the textarea so Delete's and cuts would reflect in the remaining characters, but I couldn't figure it out. Keyboard input only I guess--
24: Test Your Agility
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays.
