Yesterday was spent on ERDs and SQL SELECT.  Once our instructor had our morning lecture on ERDs it totally clicked and now much easier to do. I completed all the ERD assignments yesterday and moved on to the SQL SELECT.  I finished the basic SQL SELECT assignment with not very many issues, once I got the LEFT JOIN command it was smooth sailing, lol!  I am stuck on the intermediate one where there are two databases that need to pull data but they are not connected and have a common id, I will ask about that one.

I may not post tonight about today because I am going to a meetup called Building Street cred for females in the tech/science industry that may have gaps in their resumes. I signed up yesterday and was on the waiting list, but this morning got an email that I had been moved up. I did send an email to other girls in my class to try and sign up, as we all have a gap at this point.  I may not be able to post tomorrow as well, since I have derby practice Monday and Wednesday nights… So Thursday could be big one! We should be getting into PHP today or tomorrow.

DORITOS® TAPATIO® Flavored Tortilla Chips. Just going to start off with my new favorite snack here in CA, Tapatio Doritos! They are pretty spicy and I can only eat a few at a time, but they taste great. I was first introduced to them when I visited my friend at the Facebook campus. While there we played in the arcade, sat in the bean bag chairs and watched some WFTDA.tv. It was a pretty awesome fun night!

OK… So now onto the rest of the week at Coding Dojo. I am still working on my jQuery beginner assignment, that I have turned into a gigantic project and hope to finish this weekend, and some database intro stuff.  The ERD instruction videos were really hard to follow so after some google I sent some links to everyone in the class that has helped me understand it way better.

Here is a cheesey but helpful youtube video on ERD:

This morning I went to the fresh market by my house and ended up with some amazing cupcakes! They have an amazing little bakery and now it is time to get back to learning code 😀
