Hello! I know it has been a while since my last blog post. How naughty of me!
For my latest project, I had to extend the functionalities of my Rails app to include building an API, making calls to it, and using JQuery to update my page without refreshing it. I used a gem called Active Model Serializer to render JSON for my pins, and then was able to add dynamic features with the help of JQuery and AJAX requests. Initially I was super confused by what was being asked of me. I thought I needed to find a random API and incorporate it into my app. But thankfully the details were clarified and the rest was smooth sailing! To be honest, I had a lot of fun building this one, however I do have a bug that I still need to work out, as demonstrated in my walkthru:
I am very close to crossing the finish line with Learn Verified! I just have the Angular section to complete, and then I THINK I'm done! I met with one of the career counselors on Monday and am really looking forward to working with her because finding a Jr. programming job on my own has been difficult! I'll be sure to share the details of my job hunt once that begins. I actually had my first "technical interview" ever today, but it was awful. No, I don't want to talk about it.
