Hey, so I am very new to git and still trying to wrap my head around all of it. I have my laptop - which I got specifically for coding away from home - but I prefer to code at home on my main PC. I decided to go with a setup where my local git repos are actually in a dropbox folder. But how do I get my installation of github on my laptop to recognize the repo already installed in the dropbox folder?
I am interested in making games and possibly desktop applications as well, and was thinking I might go into Python for a DA. I was thinking about doing a Python F2 but there isn't one available in 4 weeks it doesn't seem. I like JS (more than HTML/CSS for sure) but was also thinking possibly about Ruby on Rails so I could be broadening my exposure before the DA (HTML+CSS+JS+Ruby > HTML+CSS+JS). Does anyone have any suggestions on what I might do for my F2 so I could be best prepared to do a Python DA?
The Python F2 is the obvious answer, but like you say it is a matter of timing, and the next Python dev accelerator is Oct 6, right after this. You might have some options by taking the codecademy python courses and contacting codefellows to see if that would be enough to prepare you
Well.. unfortunately my choices seem to be putting my career change on hold for half a year and wait for a PyF2 "mid Q1 2015" or pick something else. Bleh. Any suggestions on what else I might do instead?
I'm interested in game and desktop app development.
I'm kinda worried about that as well. I want to do the iOS DA but the next one isn't even scheduled yet... F2 starts a couple weeks after this ends though so it won't be as big of a gap. My job is the worst as well so I feel ya brother.
yeah, I mean, I could wait 6 months for the DA, but waiting 6 months for an F2, and THEN waiting for the next DA... yeah, not so much.
I'd rather just learn something I can start using to earn money now, and learn python on my own or whenever it comes available again. I just yeah, couldn't stand the thought of just waiting six months to proceed.
Which isn't a huge deal to me. I mean, learning another language is way easier once you have one under your belt. I am highly motivated to get something new going right away, even if it's different than what I want to do longer term. Maybe that's the wrong way to go about it but idling for half a year just doesn't work for me. That idea makes me die inside. >.<
