We are midway to our yearly goal of learning 500 hours of code. I stop on the trail and reflect on how far we’ve come. Even though we have learned a lot, we know that the mountaintop we seek is many miles ahead. We won’t be there at 500 hours – not even close. We know that there is no quick way up there – we just need to keep moving forward. Already planning on our next 500 hours in 2015.
A good method we found is the Three Steps to Retention” 1. Learn it; 2. Do it; 3. Teach it. We keep cycling through these steps and it really helps us absorb what we are learning. Working as a team helps us stay motivated and productive.
