• Completed Unit 2 Pathway 1 & 2 • Created a tipping calculator app through Codelabs • Created another tipping calculator app using Compose • Some additional reading in AK • Reviewed Sealed Classes • Found great site for for color palettes
• What an eventful day. I had plans on working with my RBP project and go over Dependency Injection, but Unit 2 has been covering a lot of stuff I'm not accustomed to so had to really take my time with it. • I'm going to try repeating what I accomplished today, which is complete some Codelabs and then recreate that app in Compose as well. Really hammer down on the basics of both and help me transition between libraries. I don't think I'll be able to maintain my pace like today though, while I was able to build two apps, I didn't take many breaks and code became sloppy when working on the Compose app. Didn't go in depth with the Compose side as I did with the Codelabs version, but aiming to complete it to move on. Not quite sure which way I prefer building apps to be honest. I actually think using XML has been enjoyable and super easy to follow(perhaps that's because I'm following a well written tutorial), but when it came to using all the different resource folders it seems like it gets hectic quick compared to Compose using 100% Kotlin. • I feel better about my progress today than I have in awhile. It feels good to produce working apps! 😆 Maybe I'll take a day or two every week to go back and try to improve these?
1. Finish Unit 2 2. Work on RPB that I neglected today 3. Review lambdas 4. Try and break down manual DI if time
