Learning Backend WebDev, Log #11 - Got a Django Certificate! Some Reflections

Been a few days since I wrote about Django. Last week was a roller coaster personally, so I took things slow. And then got back to a rhythm this week. The daily work’s paid off and I managed to hit a milestone. I got done with my Django course, today! :) Hurrah! Cert online. Some Reflections (in no particular order) I should keep better logs and notes about how I go about doing work....

Learning Backend WebDev, Log #10 - A Very Long, and a Really Good Day

I did. I really did have a good work day! I had one of those, whatchacallit, flow states. What I learnt in Django land I learnt nothing! Well I learnt nothing new. I spent the whole day and what little I time I had yesterday, trying to crack the assignment for module three of the course. I struggled and struggled and then, struggled a bit more. The more I write Django, the more intuitive it feels, like I can never make out, what’s provided by Python and what has been built for me by Django....

Learning Backend WebDev, Log #8 - Many, Many Relationships

Another day of doing only Django. Not that I’m complaining. Finishing up this Django course is my priority. Followed by PostgreSQL and Data Structures and Algorithms. I just have to do them step by step, one after another. What I learnt in Django land I like calling it Django land. Reminds me of Tarantino’s Django and Candyland. I learnt all about many to many database relationships and how they’re done with models in Django....

Learning Backend WebDev, Log #7 - Owning All the Rows

Let’s get on with today’s log! I studied only Django today. Was plagued with rains and power cuts and family stuff. Managed to work well and patiently though. What I learnt in Django land. Owned Rows, that opened my eyes into another dimension to begin with. While I knew that Django supports multiple users, it struck home today, that I was the one to write all the code that supported all those users....

Learning Backend WebDev, Log #6 - Focus Followup

Today, I did not quite care how much progress I made. Instead I focussed on getting my focus periods in, like I described yesterday. It’s about an hour earlier than when I usually call it a day. And yet, now that I am checking, I have ‘worked’ fewer actual hours than usual. And I have gotten a bit of exercise and housework done too! (This does not usually happen on a normal study day)...
