My status this week is: Getting back to coding after a few days of well earned rest.
DONE: It’s good to see that the ‘effort’ I put into coding over the last year is bearing fruit: I was able to make my own (light) version of a safer string structure for C from scratch in a surprisingly short time and with almost no bugs – it just worked. Of course this is not remotely comparable to the quality of the, what, 3000 lines? of the better string library, but I’ll book it as a success anyway. A modicum of complacency doesn’t hurt, does it?
BLOCKERS: Hurray! None!
GOALS: Move on to hashmaps, using my own strings instead of bstrlib, just to see if they’d do the job.
I have work to show at … Here’s a question: I’ve been thinking that I’d like to make myself useful – any tips for where a beginner like me should look to find small ‘gigs’? I don’t care about money, I just want to use the skills I’m building in a real world scenario. I think I’m pretty solid (for a non-professional) at Python and I also wouldn’t mind doing C. Do I just browse github and find a project I’m interested in? Any tips would be appreciated.
