So I thought it would be beneficial for me to go over some of the aspects of the project I was assigned.
The one thing that I did great on: I did WAY better getting the JSON than I thought I would. It was the first time I had a reason to acquire JSON for a project, so I was worried my total inexperience would kill me here. But I was able to get what I needed pretty nicely. Definitely the most excited I got on the project is where I was just rolling here and getting everything I needed.
The one thing that I did poorly on: Getting LiveReload to work. I don’t know if it was because I use a Windows PC running Windows 8, the files, or just my ineptitude, but I could not get it to work. I probably spend 5 hours alone trying to fix this without desired results.
The biggest thing I learned: I need to do more project oriented learning. I learned so much just from this project alone. I have been doing tutorials on Treehouse and Codecademy. I have also watch videos on Code School and Youtube. These are really tools though. Actually going through a project allowed me to run into problems/issues and determine the best way to solve the problem with the knowledge and experience I have.
