Halfway There: Week Six at The Iron Yard

This week we worked on React, which is a JavaScript subset (or library) that makes coding applications more concise. In particular, it facilitates output to the web page (and input from the web page). At this stage, React seems more complex than the JavaScript it is based upon; however, as with most code, I presume this is just a matter of getting used to it.

During the week, we had a group exercise, which was enlightening not only due to the fact that working together helped us reached a result a bit faster than we might have done individually, but also because it demonstrated that those of us in the class are all pretty much at the same level in feeling challenged by the code. We are also all open to seeking out different ways of understanding and building the code, and sharing that information.

We also celebrated the fact that we’ve completed week six – halfway through the course – and took a class picture.
