100 Days of Code: Day 1 Write-up

So, alright, we haven’t much started with coding yet so it is a little bit of a cop out for my first write up. There’s a couple of reasons for this.

Firstly each project needs time to be planned out; you will start an Android project by creating at least an initial outline of how an Android App will look. You will place your Views (or Objects), assign them appropriate ID’s and write XML code.

Secondly, I wanted to spend this time to prepare because at our home at the moment our broadband connections aren’t great and we need good speed for every time we run a Gradle sync and which involves retrieving information the Android Studio API’s. It makes sense for me to make sure the Android Activities are ready as can be for programming.

Lastly, part of the reason I’m doing this “100 Days of code” is an attempt to facilitate my learning process. The course I’m following on Treehouse guides you through the creation process on this app. The idea is to attempt what needs to be done on my own; fix any errors and if needs be,¬†follow the walkthrough and compare it with my own attempts. I certainly don’t intend to create a like-for-like copy of the app and want to give my own take on it.

I’ll be doing the same for my JavaScript forEach side project too and beyond.¬† We all learn in our own ways and doing things this way allows me to learn in a way that’s best for me.
