Simple For Loops

Week 3 Stretch Goal Tips

In general there are two types of problems to solve:

  1. "Calculate some value based on all the numbers in the array"
  2. "Find a number in the array and stop once you've found it"

In pretty much all cases, all you need to do is have a way of looping through the array of numbers, keeping track of what you have done so far, and reporting the result at the end.

Notes on SciFi

This is just a general repository for me to keep track of books that I've read over the years.


  • The Dosadi Experiment (1977), Frank Herbert
  • Snow Crash (1992), Neil Stephenson; This was a doozie. Excellent read.


  • Devil in the White City (2003), Erik Larson

Interested in becoming friendly with local crows after reading stories and first hand accounts. Obtained peanuts. Later, found grackles, but not crows. They're smaller and travel in larger flocks. Were not very interested in peanuts. They have irridescent blue heads. Curious if the small blue glass left in my garden is from the crows?

Squirrels like peanuts too. I threw a peanut towards an squirrel and it bounced off him. It did not phase him. He ate the peanut.

Adding apartment to our api project
  1. add apartment to gemfile
  2. run initializer to generate config/apartment.rb

  7. hard code the config to select a single event schema, for now
  8. migrate over all the data:
