Congratulations to the developers that got into Andela, kudos to those that didn't make it. keep on tryinh and don't give up.


Do you guys know why Andela NG favours JavaScript over other programming languages like Python, C# e.t.c.
Perhaps it's popularity? But i heard you can switch to your language of choice at some point but for now, it's JavaScript.

I'm at the bootcamp and I'm kinda confused by the instructions
currently I'm meeting my features locally to my local develop branch.
then I made a PR to the master branch on github

is that the right workflow?

your LFA should instruct you on that, you should not be working with the master branch at all

I was expecting that. but the app was broken into four challenges. we have to do two challenges before showing up physically at the tower. I've been working exclusively on develop. after a challenge a PR is expected. my cloud develop branch is synced with my lo Al. it's just weird seeing two PRs

Just follow their 'weird' instructions. It's for a good reason. On your first day at the tower you can ask your LFA for proper guidance.

Brother I'm having the same issues over here. I'm having difficulties moving forward due to this weirdness.

No you should not have anything on your master branch. Set develop as ur base branch on github and raise all pr against develop

You are not to use any validation packages. Write your own validation

Lemme tell you something, the project spec would tell you to either use one or not.
Like during cycle 37 bootcamp, challenge 2 said we shouldn't use validation libraries and then challenge 3 gave permission to use it.
So it all boils down to the project specification.

But what is validation libraries sef?
Go and learn regular expressions and thank yourself later.

Yes oooo... I totally agree. thumbs up. With Regex you become super!

so basically you pull all features against develop. as against just merging locally

Thanks boss.
Nothing was specified in the instructions about validation libraries.
I can say I'm decent at least at regexp.
Anyways there might not be a need for validation in this week's task as we are not creating endpoints for user registeration.
the parameters are mainly Addresses(location) which can be in any format and can include any character.

there is no way you won't validate sir
Re: Andela: IT Training And Job by naijanoni(m): 8:50pm On Nov 06
DonPikko:

(aside id validation for GET/PUT/).
Validating POST requests to ensure all required parameters are provided but not sure how I'm gonna validate the contents.
Like "delivery Address" for example:
A user could provide his Address in different ways.
Perhaps I should validate the length?
Or check if it includes at least a number.
Thanks anyways

Just messed up my Cycle 39 interview by forgetting to rename the class selector in a piece of my old css which I reused. But as a developer, I usually re-use code I have written already, and I'm sure a lot of devs also do that in 'real-life'. Just hoping the interviewers will see beyond that; surely I was able to explain all my code lines very well. So, advise, check and rename code you have reused from your older projects properly.

Thanks guyz!

I just finished my interview. The questions are exactly what nairalanders had always shared but in addition

Avoid these errors by me:

I used an inline JavaScript in my HTML on codepen.io...they frowned at it.

They expect to see HTML, CSS and JavaScript differently...

In ur code, try to do the worst case scenario meaning once you solve a challenge, go the extra mile like if a user tries to add a character or edit your challenge, it should throw up an error.

In all, the interview went well. Prepare to tell stories that relates to andela's epic values...

I appreciate you guys
