Project 2: Mars Rover
Module 2: Functional Programming
The second project involves working with APIs to access Nasa Mars Rover data.
Project Link: Mars Rover Repo
- Pros: Very enjoyable and educational project
- Cons: Content is long and I didn't really feel engaged until I started working on the project.
Learn Functional programming
- Course Introduction: Functional Programming
- Introduction to Functional Programming
- Project: Mars Dashboard
In this second module you learn Functional programming. Again, there is a lot of course material. The training content isnt very interactive, and there is a lot to go through. However, the material is a decent overview of Functional programming and also provides some good links to continue researching into the subject matter.
A lot of ground covered in this module leads up to a really interesting project. The Mars Rover project utilises the NASA API and requires the student to write an application to access the information and display it.
I was really getting into the course by this point, so I really went for it with the project. Unfortunately, the emphasis for this project was to focus on mobile development first. I dont feel this added much to the project, but I can appreciate why it was done in this way.
