We then went back to catch up on what we'd been working on that week, namely the twitter bots and the games. My game never came together. I asked one of the instructors for some pointers, but really he gave me a pep talk, which is what I think I needed even more than programming help. I love that after kicking myself for two days over this stupid game, someone was paying enough attention to recognize my despair. This is the complete opposite of grad school in a very good way.
|Ugh, but seriously, I hate this game.|
In the afternoon, we had a quick lecture on hashes and essentially on how dictionaries work and then it was back to working on our twitter bot (the game was dead to me at that point) and then we went back to the lecture area for demo time. There are a lot of really excellent twitter bots and games. And maybe later I'll post the links because I am the laziest. I am super impressed with all of my classmates. Everyone put in a ton of effort and everyone made something unique and hilarious for both the games and the twitter bots.
And I signed up to give a 5-10 minute talk on cat/head/tail and grep on Monday afternoon. This may or may not end up being a disaster. And I'm going to have at least one more post (and perhaps a couple more) tonight. You've been warned.
EDITED TO ADD!!!
Heather posted about week 2 of Hackbright as well and has an awesome twitter list of the twitter bots that she graciously allowed me to link to. Thanks, Heather!!
