There are times when I spend a lot of time coding, but it doesn't show up anywhere in a tangible product.
This page is meant to keep track of these times in the form of a tiny work blog.
Today I pair-programmed with a friend on a RoR app project. We tried to incorporate some Bootstrap styling to the page, and went about debugging things that didn't work.
Worked most of the day on the Bootstrap FrontEnd of a RoR app in a private repo. Learned tons : )
Did parts of the Design for a webapp and mobile app using Sketch. This is not exactly programming, but still within the same domain.
Tons and tons and TONS of designing and redesigning in Sketch. I've learned how to better use the tool and approach it towards programming by (over)using symbols. Phu...
Whoa... Another day of designing mockups... I've spent the whole day doing this, connecting screen mockups with each other to give the impression of using an app. It's somewhat absurd. I'd feel much more like actually programming this. Tried to program a bit now and it felt really confusing. Not sure that designing is good for me. But we do UX tests tonight, so I should try to establish a useful flow until then.
Most of my day was spent on searching for useful dictionary APIs and trying small tests. There's also a budding idea about an interesting program to sum up word counts I generated throughout the past days.
Today I refactored some code and tried to incorporate it into the webapp. Didn't code for a lot of time today, but some.
