Momma Said1:38 with Craig Dennis
Let's wrap things up. I got my mom to give you some advice.
How awesome is it that you made that slick looking, 0:00 fully functional productivity app? 0:03 I'd pay for that. 0:06 There's no stopping you now. 0:07 And you can even go back and build all the apps that we've built up until this point. 0:08 You have all the logic. 0:12 And now you have the power to put in the modern user interface. 0:13 I'm very happy that we got to go over some important object oriented concepts and 0:17 introduce you to a plethora of new technologies. 0:21 I showed my mom what we built, and 0:24 she of course expected the design of a set-up app. 0:25 But she was thoroughly impressed with the Pomodoro app. 0:29 While I was talking to her, I asked her to tell me the story of my earlier art and 0:33 offer some advice. 0:37 Here's what she said. 0:38 >> When Craig was little, I'd walk into the classroom. 0:39 I'd immediately know which art project was his. 0:42 There would be lines of perfectly laid out snowmen, 0:45 made from cotton balls, button noses and pretzel sticks. 0:49 And then there'd be Craig's, just a pile of cotton balls with stuff on top. 0:54 I'd tell him that you don't have to be good at everything. 1:00 You have to know where your strengths are and focus on those. 1:04 Do what makes you happy. 1:08 Other people are good at things, and you can work together with them. 1:11 Find your strengths. 1:15 You have them. 1:16 And look what you've created. 1:18 I'm so proud of you. 1:20 And you too. 1:23 >> Thanks, Mom. 1:25 Any other device you'd like to give these up and coming Java developers? 1:26 >> Sure. 1:29 Don't forget to call your mother. 1:31 >> That's great advice, Mom. 1:33 Thanks for hanging out. 1:35 We'll see you real soon. 1:36
