After taking a week off to chill and hang out with my friends again post exams and coursework deadlines I came back to the BBC task today. And I think I’ve done it! Woohoo!
I then had a little play with D3 to see if I could figure out how to create a visual representation of the data. I think I need to do some more but not bad for a first attempt methinks:
So, now I’ve done the majority of this task I think I better get back to general interview prep – oh and the next semester of uni coursework…
Well in prep for the impending interview at the BBC I have been losing my life to Codecademy. I just love the style of teaching and how easy it is to use.
So far, I have completed courses in JQuery, AngularJS, Git and Command Line and I’m halfway through PHP.
I’ve also started attempting the challenge they set me – turn out to be a lot trickier than I expected, and JSON is a bit more confusing than I was led to believe after dealing with XML. Determined to do it and do it well though – watch this space!
I’ve also been advised (and I think this is a fab idea) to create my own little reference sheet of all the terms in the job spec with definitions and stuff to make sure I understand them and can talk about them even if only a little bit. So, after Codecademy PHP the thesaurus is next, alongside the coding challenge and general interview prep of course!
