Day 33: Learning How To Code

I just spent $250 on a yearly subscription to Educative.io to learn data structures and algorithms.


You usually learn this stuff in school during a traditional computer science curriculum, but I studied aerospace engineering. I've had such a great time learning how to code at work, I want to continue this as a hobby moving forward in the New Year.


I actually just finished solving my first problem, which was to convert a decimal number into its binary form using a data structure known as a Stack. It was fun to think through for sure! I solved it on my second try after cleaning up some errors in my code.


I'm definitely excited to keep going, and I hope I can continue to learn a lot. My challenge will be trying to finish this particular course (Data Structures and Algorithms by Vincent Russo) this week, or next.
