1. Cross Pollination Project Idea
During Mod 4 you have the opportunity to collaborate with Frontend students to build out applications. If you have a great idea you want to work on, there is a section in the intermission work form to include a gist with details about your project idea. Please be as detailed as possible and include the tech stack you are considering. Taking the time now to to think through your proposal can save you from trying to come up with one during week 3 of the mod. You will have an opportunity to review the project ideas that have been submitted, as well as, add to this list later in the mod should you have another idea that interests you. We look forward to seeing your ideas!
Submit: Link to gist with your idea and tech stack.
You may already be familiar with this book from the Mod 3 pre-work, which is great! If you are feeling comfortable and would enjoy exploring a little further there is an outline of additional chapters below. The additional chapters are NOT required. However, if you are not feeling comfortable, or just want to revisit these first chapters that is perfectly okay. Important: It is okay if you do not completely understand all the ideas you just read. We will have time to go over these topics in class, but want you to be exposed to these concepts and start getting familiar with them now.
For a deliverable, please create a gist and write a short summary of what you are taking away from the chapters you’ve read.
- Values, Types, and Operators
- Program Structure
- Data Structures: Objects and Arrays
- The Secret Life of Objects
Submit: Link to your gist containing your summaries.
Submit: Link to your repo.
