    In Bootcamp #25: The Last Week

    Final Group project is a solo one



    It’s actually even worse, it’s become a “Ryan” project





    Other team member contributions



    Committed GitHub repo of another project without changing anything

    Slacked some code instead of putting in git

    Created more artwork and logos

    Nobody has used the GitHub issues or project board





    Time sinks



    Spent more than an hour trying to kill a service

    Spent half an hour to build from source

    Broke the entire Node package

    Zone out in front of the monitor 





    GitHub insight



    A cool feature of owning a repository are insights

    See exactly how many clones and pulls to a repository there have been





    Final day

    In Bootcamp #24: Mail Server

    Follow up



    From Brandon @brandon_mn on Twitter



    In bootcamp #22 follow-up:



    – folks ask me about the U of M bootcamp and it’s quality and I’ve always been like “Not sure – it’s a bootcamp, have fun!’ but thanks to matt’s feedback I won’t be saying that

    – ughhhhhh java













    Computer science unit was super short 



    Big-O notation

    Felt like Computer Science coverage from Bootcamp was very lacking

    High School AP Computer was better for Computer Science

    Bought a udemy course to bolster coverage





    Mail server



    Mail server using Postfix, Dovecot and MySQL

    Why not use MailChimp or Sendgrid?



    MailChimp apparently still requires mail server locally





    “You don’t know what you don’t know until you can’t do it”





    Group project 3

    In Bootcamp #22: Java

    React is done/ few last minute things



    Redux not covered

    Context not covered

    No hooks





    Java



    It was hard to get started; installation was difficult

    Examples are not followed up on now

    Learning about packages; with the classpath

    Ryan shared Spring Initializer

    “What is the world?”







    Changed the course syllabus



    Done with Java

    “Building webapps with Java” basically cut from the program

    Java homework is optional





    Project 3



    Not going well already

    Thinking about automated deployments

    In Bootcamp #21: Prime Digital

    In Bootcamp #21: Prime Digital

    React



    State



    Using `.map` like a pro

    Used components like a beast

    Destructuring





    Chat with the TA



    TA took Prime Digital

    UMN Bootcamp was very different in comparison

    He took the fulltime version for 20 weeks

    He would recommend Prime Digital





    Profolio



    Professor suggested scraping the existing portfolio

    Trying a Gatsby template instead

    Good idea – except for keeping the template as is

    Gatsby starters
