Lessons from my internship at Splunk
I know this doesn’t directly connect to coding, but I figured coding is still a part of my career path, and so was my time at Splunk, so let’s put it here. Sure.
I finally created a repo for the SPICE Project (codenamed “Habanero”) and pushed it to GitHub!
I also pushed the Django tutorial I completed into its own repo, just for kicks.
Tomorrow, we code.
The official Django tutorial
I finished the official Django tutorial yesterday.
Things I learned and other thoughts:
- Django uses model, view, and template layers.
- The model layer is “an abstraction layer (the ‘model’) that is used for structuring and manipulating the data of your Web application.”
- The view layer “encapsulates the logic responsible for processing a user’s request and for returning the response.”
- The template layer “provides a designer-friendly syntax for rendering the information to be presented to the user.”
- I’m not quite sure what I’m doing. (Yet.)
- I need to spend less time on tutorials and following step-by-step instructions and more time on comprehending and processing what I’m doing.
- I’m hoping that starting the Tango with Django textbook tomorrow will help.
First, I need to learn Git. Luckily, the textbook briefly covers it.
This is the blog where I will document my journey to becoming a software / web developer.
