23 – Reflection

Think Back

Congratulations on reaching the end of the 23 Things at UWA!

For the final week, there’s just one last thing your Practically Perfect Programmer wants you to do: summarize your thoughts and reactions to what you’ve learned over the past few weeks. Here are some suggestions for things you might like to talk about in your final blog post:

  • What was your favorite technologies, tools or activity?
  • What was your least favourite?
  • Do you have a different take on web-based technologies now?
  • Was there something in or about the program that really surprised you?
  • Did you meet your lifelong learning goals?

This week’s tutorial will offer you the opportunity to ask questions that you never got the chance to ask or to explore technologies that you didn’t get a chance to play with in the program.  It’ll also be a chance for those of you who still have a little way to go to play catch-up one final time.

Remember: you have until Monday, 7th December to complete the course and be eligible for the prize draw.  The Practically Perfect Programmer will be available over this time period to provide assistance, and is happy to arrange for some one-to-one sessions.  However, to be ticked off as ‘complete’ on her magical check sheet, you’ll need to have:

  • Blog posts covering 18 of the 23 things (this is not necessarily 17 blog posts, mind).
  • Given the practically perfect programmer details your delicious and library thing accounts (thing 8 & thing 9)
  • Tweeted for 7 days (week eight).
  • Added one new topic and edited on topic on the 23 Things Wiki (week 6) or, if you were in the Pilot Program, the Library Lingo wiki (April – thing 9).

She will also be organising a morning tea towards the end of December to celebrate and hand out certificates and what not.

    Bookbuster, are you going to leave all these informative posts on this blog once the course has finished?

    • bookbuster Said:

      They’ll stay up until wordpress decides not to host them anymore 😉

    Will our wordpress blog always be free? Or will there come a time when we will have to pay to have a blog?

    • bookbuster Said:

      With the 23 Things blog, we pay for a custom layout, and not to have adverts, but otherwise it’s free. Same for the blogs of you participants, it’ll be free for the forseeable future. While I doubt that you’ll ever have to pay for a blog, you may find, in the future, that you need to chance blogging hosts one day.

    Thanks bookbuster, that’s great news.
