This week we’re doing morning algorithms with Stacks and Queues and boy is it excited! J/K, not really.
I think once I get past the LIFO and the FIFO principles to decide how to retrieve values from a linked list or an array, I’ll feel much better about these guys.
I finally received my results back from the retake of my exam and I earned a 9/10 which I knew I where I had issues and I talk my instructor about it when I returned to the Dojo so there was no surprise on that part. I accumulated enough points to receive my Red Belt! It’s definitely not the black belt I was hoping for BUT I certainly have come along way these past 4 weeks than I ever did on my own so I am happy about that.
My favorite was the Deck of Cards Assignment where you create a deck of 52 cards, shuffle them and deal then to a player all outputting into the console. I was pretty proud of myself for getting that far with the assignment. This project can be found here: https://github.com/tthompson899/deck_of_cardsJS, currently it only shuffles and deals to a player. In our last stack we had the same assignment in LAMP, unfortunately, I was too behind to even try to attempt it, this time, the MEAN stack was unlocked on Sunday when I’ve been working for the past weeks so I was able to look at the material and do the first assignment which definitely boasted my confidence.
