Self-Reflection Mar. 27th – Karim Taher

  • Details: I completed most of the code academy Python program over the weekend, and Hashem motivated me to download Xcode in order to start experimenting around with Swift. I began watching Swift tutorials, along with Hashemking’s help, I believe that I will learn how to program on a more advanced level and hope to do start doing so in the next few weeks. I think I gave it my all throughout the past two weeks and I hope to continue pushing myself to become a better programmer,=.
  • Proof:

  • Goal reflection: My goal was to complete the python Code Academy tutorial and unfortunately I did not achieve my goal as I only completed 82%. I believe my goal was not that reasonable and I must set a more reasonable and timely goal.
  • Goal: My goal is to be able to understand basics of swift playground through an online source or Hashem’s guide.
  • Plans? We’re about half-way through the semester at this point.  What do you want to do with your final quarter in Gnimmargorp?
    • I want to start a new language, Swift, a language that will make me develop on a more advanced scale.

Self Reflection 2nd of March

  • I think I gave it my all, despite socializing I also focused really well on improving my coding skills and I did so through “CodeAcademy”.
  • Details: I worked every class for the whole class on the Code Academy Python tutorials and achieved almost half the course by achieving 47%, which I am very proud of as I did not think I would complete that much progress in two weeks. The problems got more difficult but I worked with Hashem and Mahmoud and we tried to figure them out collaboratively, which is a good sign teamwork.
  • Proof:

  • Goal reflection: My goal was to complete 20% of the course and I completed 47%, I believe that is massive success.
  • Goal: Since the problems are getting more difficult I am expecting to make less progress so I am hoping to reach 65% in the upcoming weeks and I believe with hard work and focus I will be able to do so.
  • Changes?:My idea of computer science has altered completely, as it is so much more than games, it involves thinking, interpreting, visualizing, and working with numbers, which are all things I enjoy doing in this class.
