My status this week is: becoming more confident
DONE: Had another go at cat and find from MorePy. This time round I learned much more about friction to my process, and have drafted a little list of improvement I am working through (silly little things like window toggling and more effective searching in Vim). However my biggest impediment is worrying about layout. I find that between listing objectives and turning into pseudo-code or code, I spend too long yanking lines about and/or worrying about grammar in comments. So I am addressing this in refactoring rather than hacking.
BLOCKERS: None really. I was overly optimistic with the MorePy hacks I intended to do, because in reality I’m mentally tired after a full day’s work and the volume of physical training that’s ramping up. I’m just keen to get into the next chapter as I have the confidence now whereas before I was quite intimidated by the whole book. I’ve also started learning to touch-type which slows things down a tad…
GOALS: Slow progress through MorePy in February. I’ve got 3 weeks off in March and intend to hit the book hard.
I am currently working on … MorePy Hacks.
I am struggling with understanding … some stuff I learned a few months back, because I haven’t used it enough. A quick reference check usually brings it back.
I am finally understanding … my workflow when starting a task
I have work to show at … GitHub - but nothing of note at this time. Will be starting a new blog soon (part of the March tasks) a bit like Zed’s space for all his different interests.
