So the Makers Academy precourse is in full swing! I've just come to the end of the first week which has consisted of Command Line and Git. I'd always been a bit scared of both of them so now that I have some understanding of it I don't know what I was so worried about!
The challenge we were set for this week was a murder mystery completed through the command line. I'd been through the command line course on Codecademy so I had a rough idea of the basic. Git was all brand new to me though. It took me a while to get my get my head around the workflow but after a bit of experimentation I was able to do some simple tasks.
The challenge needed a mix of commands that I already knew, as well as a few new ones I had to google for. On top of that there was some deduction thrown in for good measure! It was set out a bit like an old text adventure/puzzle game. I really enjoyed it and hope future challenges are this fun!
The people on my course all seem awesome. We met last Monday at the Pre Course launch and quite a few of us have been pretty active on Slack talking about the work as we progress.
Overall the week was less stressful than I was anticipating, although I think it's going to heat up as we move onto Ruby from tomorrow!
