By 1:30pm we realized we were sol. Our “game” needed emergency coding attention if it was going to be presentable by 5pm.
An instructor swooped in and saved the game but our lack of programming knowledge persisted. How come other students could make cool apps all alone? Why were still so unsure of how the code worked, even with it written out in front of us.
Not a happy wake up call, but luckily, the following week was a horse of a different color.
