The day began with Leila showing us some motivational quote boards which the students had made and we talked about hidden job markets and also watched a motivational video recommended by a student. We also set up a LinkedIn account which I had always wanted to do but never got around doing it and saw many familiar faces who were my email contacts. We followed each other on LinkedIn and proceeded to complete our profiles.
Later part of the day, Professor D asked us to create a Github account. Github is basically a repository where we can save or store our codes. We do this for several reasons as we can rollback to previous changes if the code stops working later, we can share codes among other programmers and share ideas, work together with other coders on a similar project, and also we dont have to carry our flash drives around.
I followed other people in class and made a pull request, forked chris’s and eric’s projects and added some comments to it. We then worked on the assignment after class at college premises.
