Much progress has been made on the Angular course work. I am pretty impressed in this course. It is really as complete as advertised, so far.
Over the week I have had a number of opportunities to talk to potential clients. I have came to a realization that I am struggling in aspects of development that I should not be! This is disappointing.
For example, code challenges. I have been avoiding them. They are more of an academic practice than actual development experience. At least this is the mindset I have had until recently. It appears that management does actually look at these exercises as a gauge of capabilities and competence. On top of that, they expect such tasks to be done in short spurts. Due to my avoidance, I am not prepared to do them upon request. I mean, I should have no issue, which is why I am disappointed.
So, to overcome this, Sprint 2 may be extended back to 5 weeks. I will be joining a number of core code challenge sites to bring those type of skills back up to par with my capabilities. This is not for a self-confidence thing, but a necessity for the job.
As far as additional Angular knowledge I have gained, I now know about how to make directives, and use them. This is pretty easy to do. I am surprised that I have not been introduced to this at an earlier time. More and more I learn, more and more I find what I do not know. To be honest, this is pretty exciting for me!
