The process for this project was not dissimilar to baking a cake for the first time.
Obviously others have come before me and done a bang up job of baking said cake but
as my first run I had to do a lot of following directions.
As much as I felt I could, I would explore tangents of precesses while going through them. I tried to explore what would happen if I made small tweaks to the code. Ihave to admit a lot of my exploring on this project was incredibly timid.
Challenges in this project were mostly personal. I tend to have a very high standard for myself and it became difficult at times to realize I just didn't know how to make the design work in the way I had in my head. I ended up doing a lot of rereading of processes in order to make sense of what I needed to do to make a function work a certain way. I had to push through the frustration that comes with being new to something and just keep trying. Through persistence, this strategy pays off in a huge way. This was a simple project but I learned quite a bit through it.
