Keeping with the master craftsman and apprentice theme, no apprentice will learnContinue reading “Find Mentors”
The learning pattern “Retreat into Competence” from the Apprenticeship Patterns book is something that gave me great comfort to read. The idea is that, when overwhelmed by your ignorance in the face of a complex problem or task, it can be beneficial to temporarily fall back onto what you know. This can boost your confidence, refresh yourContinue reading “Retreat into Competence”
I was looking for some materials to supplement the work we are doing in Software Quality Assurance and Testing (CS-443) and I came across a nice article from ReQtest entitled What is Boundary Value Analysis and Equivalence Partitioning? I found this to be a good supplement to our in-class activity on boundary value testing, summarizing some ofContinue reading “Boundary Value Testing & Equivalence Partitions”
The pattern called “Create Feedback Loops” in the Apprenticeship Patterns book focuses on finding ways to identify areas of knowledge which are lacking and how to overcome them.

Concrete skills are something I feel as though I have an abundance, and simultaneously, a lack of. I guess this depends on what kind of skills are being referenced. If data structures, algorithms, or Leetcode is in question, I have confidence. I enjoy these topics and have solid knowledge in these areas. When it comesContinue reading “Concrete Skills”
In reading the introduction to the Apprenticeship Patterns book, I found a great deal of the material to be interesting. Looking at the learning curve of a software developer in the style of the apprenticeship to journeyman to master stages provided a much better framework for progression than I had seen before and putting it in theseContinue reading “Apprenticeship Patterns Introduction”

In our practice with REST API backends, multiple times we ran into MongoDB usage, as the database we were using for the API was MongoDB. My only previous experience had been SQL/SQLite, so I wanted to know what the difference was. I came to find out there is a world of difference, in fact MongoDBContinue reading “MongoDB and NoSQL Databases”
