Recovery is key

The last 4 weeks have been a marathon of training your brain with new ideas and concepts; and just like during a training routine, you need to take some recovery days. Today, you should create a blog post as well go back and revisit an old project and let your brain recovery before we take off again.


  • Practice talking about technology
  • Reinforce a topic we have covered in class


Explorer Mode

  • You have grown as a developer and a person in the last 4 weeks. Create for me a blog post on medium on 1 of the following prmpts

    • Pick 1 topic technically that we have learned and create a blog post explaining it to a new developer

    • Blog about a struggle that you have encountered and overcome during your tenure here so far.

    • Pick a new techonlogy that we haven't hit yet (or won't) and create a intro blog for that.

  • Submit the link to your published blog post when turning in this assignment.

Adventure Mode

  • Go back and finish up any outstanding work.

  • Go back to a previous assignment and work on it some more. This could trying to tackle a harder level, working on the UI/UX, refactoring the code to a new idea that we covered (e.g. functions and abstractions), or adding unit tests.

  • To turn this in, link to the other project's repository, and describe what you did.

Epic Mode

  • Using the built in react testing framework. Create unit tests for a past project. This will be a bit challenging because we have not covered TDD much in class, but take a swing at this.
