Goal I

It’s late Monday morning. Considering the many paths I could turn down.

This week, I will accomplish the following things:

  •  get portfolio ready for the masses
  •  dust up my knowledge of javascript + jQuery through codeschool.com and Jon Duckett’s “Javascript & JQuery”
  •  go to this networking event on Tuesday
  •  go to my graduation event hosted by General Assembly at Music Hall of Williamsburg(!!)
  •  exercise???????

Now quick, where is the coffee.


A Purpose

Hello there,

I attended a really intense design school and was sick of working for free and had to change up my career path. Hence, the sudden switch to web development. I am probably the luckiest gal around to have stumbled on to something that I actually enjoy spending hours ( and hours, and hours) on.

Two weeks ago, I graduated from General Assembly’s Web Development Immersive. It was absolute insanity and one of the most challenging and rewarding decision I have made so far. I am so thankful to finally have an outlet to direct all of my energy into, and after taking a relaxing trip back home to recalibrate, I’m back in NYC. I plan to use this space to keep a clear outline of my development endeavors, so first let me recap on what I already know:

                 – javascript

                 – jQuery( which, in my opinion, should be pronounced ja-query)

                 – HTML

                 – How to make ajax calls

                 – css, but I prefer using a pre-processor like scss

                 – ruby on and off rails

                 – how to fail at OAuth2.0

                 – how to succeed at OAuth2.0

                 – A whole bunch of frameworks like Ember.js, Angular. js, Create.js, etc.

                 – Ubuntu deployment

                – how to teach myself these things

What I’m currently working on:

               – how to concisely display all of this in a portfolio

               – using Amazon Web Services

               – how to be as efficient as possible

               – actively commenting my code

               – sleeping at night

               – postgresql

Happy Friday!
