Week 2 : #100DaysOfCode

“A house is only as strong as the foundation that it is built on” 

A lot of this week was spent on focusing, on understanding Collections and when to use them.  The difficulties for me, still seem  to be learning everything else that encompasses the language: different IDE’s, maven, gradle, frameworks, etc. Currently, following Pluralsight’s Java path, but what I am finding is  that when I would like to focus on the fundamentals of Java. I seem to end up spending more time with trying to set up & understand the IDE or build tools, as the the JAVA path is made up of different course authors. IDE’s and build tools I find are really just a  personal preferance.  

“Choice is great but, but with too many choices this creates an added complexity in learning something from the ground up” 

  What I have to decided to do for the time being,  is to stick with one IDE & Build tool regardless of the course. Which is: I have also added in some extra exercises from w3resources. I am still using the mobile app soloLearn, when I travel to keep the momentum of learning. On the side I have started brushing up on my unit testing  Junit.
