[#CNC2022 Cohort 1 "Learn in Public"] Tell us how your series is going!

This thread is for participants in Cohort 1 of #CNC2022's "Learn in Public" Challenge.

Mission 4 Thread

After you've completed the reading and exercises in your Mission 4 email (to be sent at 1:30 PM on Monday, February 21, 2022), respond to the following prompts related to the work you've done...

1. Tell us how it felt to finish your series and the type of feedback you're hoping to receive.
2. Tell us one thing you learned from this "Learn in Public" themed episode of the CodeNewbie Podcast β€” or a favorite quote you heard.

After you've left your comment in the thread, find one or twoΒ other people in the thread and introduce yourself by replying to them here. If youΒ already feel familiar with the concept they've picked to learn, feel free to share any resources that helped you master it.Β 

Congrats on challenging yourself to Learn in Public! If you have any questions about the challenge overall, head to the Learn in Public Help Thread. For any technical questions throughout the challenge (or in general) write a #help post on CodeNewbie Community or DEV and share with the community!

  1. I haven't finished my series so it will be awhile before I get any feedback. Right now my plan is undergoing lots of changes and it will be quite some time before my series is even finished and up on Code Newbie. Although I didn't finish my series, I feel less stressed than my past two installments and am much more confident about the plan I have in place. When it is time for feedback, my hope is to get specific feedback that shows how someone is interpreting my content and what could be improved so my audience can better understand a concept or step.

  2. There were a lot of good takeaways, but the one thing I learned was about how valuable repetition is. The Leitner system in particular was a good strategy on how to review concepts and revisit what someone has learned before to get an idea of how well someone knows a concept and what needs more review before it is time to move onto the next topic. Plus chunking (learning in small chunks) is always a good strategy on hand while learning a new concept.

I agree that the Leitner system is a great way to review!

Hi I'm Neha and I've written my series on conducting basic data analysis in Python using Jupyter Notebook.

  1. It felt great to finish my series! It was a lot of work and I'm proud of what i've accomplished.
  2. I've learned that spaced repetition is a great way to learn and retain knowledge!
