We also have lectures that cover different concepts from what types of jobs are out there for the skills we are learning to computer science overview (how the computer functions). They broke the lectures into consumable size and spread out throughout the program when they think we are ready for those concepts.

We’ve been told that we are moving through the material faster than they expected. It does go at a fast clip. I typically try to review what I’ve learned either end of day or on the weekend to make sure I’m soaking it in.

I plan to update this post for the remaining weeks as we go through them for myself to keep track as much as for anyone else interested.
