Day 2 is in the books, and with it a couple of completed hacking challenges. I needed a bit more help from the Jive team, even on these easy ones. A few great lessons in debugging for sure.
I actually really liked the multi-day aspect of this over a single long stretching event. It gave me some time to think over which challenges to take, and extend what I was hearing during the technical speaking sessions. If anything, there might be a few too many coding challenges, you feel compelled to complete them all or none at all, but I understand that it speaks to the myriad of ways we can actually approach development in the environment: in turn it makes it all that much more important to have a technical expert on your side, because there are a million ways to skin a cat.
My approach has been to focus on the easier challenges to get the badge early, but with it now obtained I'm going to change over to the harder for the final day. I'm wondering if I'll even be able to wrap up one given the amount of slogging that this day included.
