IP questions

1. protocols consist of the functions of networking (TCP/IP/FTP)

2. IP address is the unique code given to your computer and used to identify other computer, when you want to find a website your IP address contacts the DNS to find the IP that is coupled with a domain name.

3. IPv4 uses 4 bytes of data to make a code, IPv6 expands this adding letters to make it more complex creating more unique addresses

4. IP packets are the packets of data the your IP sends to other address.

5. the DNS is an index of domain names and the appropriate IP address's given to them

Brush Ones Teeth -

-using your dominant hand pick up the toothbrush by the hand.
-with your non dominant hand unscrew the cap to toothpaste
-continuing to use your non dominant hand bring the top toothpaste to your tooth brush
-make sure the head of the toothbrush is level with the bristles facing up
-lay the tip of the tooth past to end of the bristles closest the hand gently squeeze pulling the toothpaste to the end of the brush
-stop squeezing once the toothpaste has reached the end of the brush

Da jobs

List of important traits/skills:

general coding - be able to understand other peoples code and how and why they work. keep coding

compression - take a piece of code and compress it down into smaller format(get rid of unused variables)

efficiency - take code that worked and try to accomplish the same task in less steps (critical for optimization)

speed - being able to code at a fast rate/ memorizing functions, think up of a task and try to accomplish it as quick as possible

flowcharts - take a piece of code you made and make a flowchart for it.

Flow Charts - Matt Hines

1. Ive used flowcharts before in engineering
2. I do find flowchart relatively easy to understand
3. I think that they were both equal in challenge to create
4. I prefer to just start writing code immediatly
