Pattern happy

18 January, 2009

This week I have been mostly on a Design Patterns intensive module.

I’d met most of the patterns before at work, but the exercises were a) challenging and b) fun and generally descended into chocolate-fuelled pairing late into the night. This is lots of fun until you have to get up in the morning the next day and are mocked by the lecturer for your submission times.

15 hours of sleep later, my brain has re-solidified and I’m catching up on all the stuff that had been put on hold for the week. Like preparing for my snowboarding holiday 😀

In other news, I have been introduced to bash and awk and brackets that are actually commands. Resolution One is not looking good.
