CCATP #782 — Bart Busschots on PBS 158A – jq More Queries

In Programming By Stealth this week, Bart Busschots and I start off by going through the challenges from our previous installment. Remember how I said I was really digging jq and querying JSON files because at heart I’m a data nerd? Well, I failed completely at accomplishing the homework. It was not for lack of trying though – I worked about 4 hours on just the first challenge. Because of a fundamental building block that wasn’t properly in place in my brain, I was never going to succeed.

That means that this episode is almost half about the challenges and Bart carefully re-explaining the pieces he’d taught us in the previous installment. We both agree that it’s good work because if I was lost, there’s a reasonable chance that one other student was as well.

Because of my questions, we cut the episode in half, so the shownotes are complete but the second half will be explained in PBS 158B which we’ll record in a couple of weeks.

You can find Bart’s fabulous tutorial shownotes at pbs.bartificer.net.
