Summer 2015 So F ar

One of my goal this summer is work on my project, which ended up with me taking a long detour in both brushing up and learning new skills in JavaScript, JQuery, Ajax, PHP, MVC, and OOP. There was a lot of reading, online video/school, and coding. I have sadly ddiscovered that I have learned more about Ajax in a 2-days self-study using Treehouse video and books than I did a semester of class, but hey, some classes are better than other. It’s been good, although I ended up pushing back my C and Anduino learning.

IT network self-study has been going well. Since I am taking the same professor as I had in my Introduction to Networking for the next semester course in Network Security, I feel that I should brush up on my network knowledge. When I took my first network class over half year ago, I was new to CS and have no idea what is going on. I am half-way through re-reading my books and notes. Now that I have a lot more experience, it makes much more sense, and I feel more comfortable about jumping back to a networking class this Fall.

In term of Fedora, because of that fact that half of my self-study files are local, I lacked a reason to even turn on Virtualbox. But no more. Most of my learning files and even a good portion of my project files are now on Dropbox. I installed both Dropbox and Sublime Text on Fedora, so I can now do most of my coding and studies in Fedora!

Although, Fedora have problem waking up from its sleep in Virtualbox. It would either remain the black screen of death or refuse to let me type anything. In addition, I am consistently clicking on command-C instead of control-C. In Virtualbox, control-C actually exits the Virtualbox out of its full-screen mode instead of copying text. As someone who loves shortcut key and types pretty quick, it’s driving me a bit crazy. I pretty much do a command-key shortcut every 10 minutes when I started using Virtualbox, then when I do return to my Mac OS, I would do the opposite! (As in using control-key for shortcut every 10 minutes). For the first time in my life, I curse my ability to type so quickly…
