I say all that to say, the Ruby course seemed more challenging to me and thus influenced me to picking that course. That is also why, I haven't really written anything in the last two weeks or so. I've been busy reading and studying a new language.
Since starting the Ruby path last week, I've gone over the following curriculum:
- Basic Data Types
- Input and Output
I have a few more topics to cover before Ruby Basics will be completed which should be done within the next few days and that leads into the first few projects that will utilize Ruby. The projects are four mini projects that are designed to solidify the previous training. They are also the precursor to the major topic of OOP that will be followed by Tic Tac Toe and Mastermind projects.
I'm genuinely excited about where I am in my journey to becoming a software developer. The idea that just a few months ago I could only program minor snippets that didn't really do anything but utilize the console, to where I am now, having designed and built three applications, one being a usable calculator (for simple calculations), I can't be more pleased with this program. The Odin Project is the real deal. As with anything, the more you apply yourself and put into it, the more you will get out of it. As I progress through part two of my journey in TOP, I will continue to apply myself to what I'm learning and will finish strong!
