Dev Bootcamp Rap Recap: Week 1

Let’s try something different on the weekends, yes?

Yes.

Listen up.

Annotated lyrics below:

I’ve only been here for a week
But I’m already feeling like it’s gonna be the year of the geek
My peers in this effort are clever and clearly unique
Climbing this mountain and a coding career’s what we seek
And while we’re nearing the peak, we have Sherpas
who pack for us and transform us from bad learners
into stack warriors fast forwarding our grasp on how the code works. 
It don’t hurt to ask for it if you need guidance,
cause the speed frightens the bravest of souls
searching for knowledge they can aim to control. 
Working with scholars trying to daily expose your vast ignorance
leaves a bitter taste in your mouth like black licorice;
I won’t candy coat it, it’s hard work for most folks,
but getting through it together is how you grow close.
This OO and TDD is no joke at DBC…
who needs degrees if your code’s dope?

Time to put an end to the foolishness
I got foo-bars and drop gems like a Rubyist.
The loop exists until I’m greater than or equal to great
at believing mistakes are the building blocks of usefulness.
Cause perfectionism’s a recipe for hurting
but still, some people do it to themselves like recursion…
this is programming examined by a wordsmith
my stack’s overflowing with verses. 
You ask if it’s worth it, 
like, “should I really have the time to blog?”
maybe you heard it’s long nights involved and that’s true. 
But if I’m never signing off I’ll burn out like a dying log
and that’s realer than a float or an integer
I’m trying to state the obvious: 
you gotta save time for yourself like a modulus, 
cause if it’s nothing left over you’ll stress over the smallest little problems
and not arrive at accomplishment.
That’s why I gotta spit sometimes
I’ve only got one mind
adjusting to the hustle of crunch time.
I bust rhymes and return to the screen craft
with a passion for tapping keys, stabbing at tab as I punch lines…
So what’s prime? How do you test for it?
Describe the type of data structure that’s best for it.
I’m going in like a nested array
debugging out till the end of the day.
– thIIIrd person

Back to the keyboard tomorrow. This was fun. Let’s do it next week.
