Each evening (except for weekends) our group meets up together and we discuss what we did today, what coding exercise we are on and what we would need help with. For the past couple weeks we have also been doing presentations on different topics (preferably related to coding and/or technology). I'm always looking forward to those meetings.
The tasks that you are given are in-fact very difficult, but I feel like that's the point. Nothing motivates you more than finishing that one task that you were stuck on for a couple days. Not to mention that you learn more from difficult tasks, not from easy ones.
Overall, I enjoy my time at the online school. The tasks are fun, and I'm always looking forward to learning more. The staff are very supporting and are willing to help you out with the issues that you have with your code. It's a very supporting and helpful community, and I love it.
Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
