Code Camp Session 1 – 3/19/2017

Notes:
-tags are opened and closed as such:
<hi>TEXT</hi>; i= 1,2,3,4,5,6 depending on text size
-tags for paragraph are made as such:
<p>TEXT</p>
-to comment out things:
<!–TEXT–>
-to change the color with the inline:
style= “color: red” (inside the tags)
-to change the color using a CSS property:
<style>
h2 {color: red;}
</style>
-to change the color in terms of class to link to another element:
<style>
h2 {
color:red;
}

.red-text{
color:red;
}
</style>
<h2 class=”red-text”>CatPhotoApp</h2>

Discussion:

-IEs can compete with CS majors in jobs, there’s a minimum to which we must learn on our own (probably out of school) but IEs can practice and test their knowledge on websites such as: https://leetcode.com/

-Technical Interviews are so much different from the typical behavioral IE ones, a standard technical interview requires two people to sit down with a blank sheet of paper and write out a code to solve the problem presented. Companies look for teamwork and a grasp of data analytics and algorithms here

-Since the IE curriculum does not teach as much coding, websites like codeacademy or udemy can allow IEs to learn code on their own, hopefully to a point where a software company can train them

-IEs have a business acumen and a more down to earth- efficiency mindset and that can set them apart from CS majors who are only well practiced in coding
