Coding For Product Week 2

• Was in class going through Frameworks and Databases and saw the SpaceX Mission got scrubbed to Monday. Oh well…

Learned some Bootstrap

• We quickly built something in Bootstrap

• Pretty simple and really quick for a cool mock-up
• From a developer point-of-view, though, the copy and paste method looks like it can yield some ugly code.
• Very different, from say, C++, where you’d have to think ahead of time what your system would look like, and plan from there (kind of top-down), instead of adding a chunk here and a chunk there, like a squirrel stuffing its cheeks with nuts! XP

• This was actually my favourite! Enjoyed this a lot.

• Was familiar with mySQL, Oracle and BigQuery, and a bit of Neo4j.

• Databases just make sense to me :)

One

• Write ax^2 + bx + c
``````y = (a * (x * x)) + (b * x) + c
``````

Two

• check if in an array using only one loop
``````function check(a,x){
if(RegExp('\\b'+x+'\\b').test(a.join(','))){
return true
}
else{
return false
}
}
``````
• hadn’t seen this before..this is a Regex solution

Three

• Quadratic equation solutions…or else say “no solution”
``````import math

try:
quad = ((b * (-1)) + (math.sqrt((math.pow(b, 2)) - (4 * a * c)))) / (2 * a)
quad1 = ((b * (-1)) - (math.sqrt((math.pow(b, 2)) - (4 * a * c)))) / (2 * a)
arr = []
else:
return arr
except:
return "No real solution"
return
``````

Update: I don’t enjoy UI

• Working on some stuff for my group in Bootstrap. Granted, I’m learning, but this is my experience thus far. It just feels painful.

• I guess you’d have to be a particular type of person to enjoy this stuff. Right now, that person is not me.

• How in shiny tomatoes can there be a generalization about a particular gender liking UI? :(

• I think I’d be miserable doing this all day long :(

Things to do

• Udacity Nanodegree continue (I may start this on Monday).
• Mock-up pages in Codepen
• They would probably have the same look, more or less
• Just different inputs here and there
