What I Did, Volume 6

What I Did is a series that documents software development-related work I’ve done the previous week. As the old adage goes, that which is measured gets done, and there’s nothing like broadcasting to the world that you’ve done nothing to motivate the self, right?

This week felt weird. I don’t know how to describe it, but it felt like I did a lot of work with not a lot to show for it.

  • I spent a lot of time reading and taking notes on Think Python, not because I can’t write Python at all, but because of the theory behind the Python. I thought I would be working through this faster than I actually am, and at the end of the week, I had only made it through chapter 3.
  • I finished Udacity’s Responsive Web Design Fundamentals, which was a whirlwind tour of all things responsive (obviously). It was nice to see all the things that exist for making sites pretty and responsive, but I don’t feel like I got much out of the class that I could use (ten miles wide, less than an inch deep), but…
  • I began Udacity’s Responsive Images course, which is making me feel better about my inability to *do* anything after the overview course mentioned above. I’ve begun working with Grunt to automate image alterations, and I’ve installed RIOT and ImageMagick (which I will be learning how to use soon enough).

What’s next?
