Windows Bootcamp frustration 😡

The emoji says it all…. But just in case it doesn’t, here’s what happened to me and how I fixed it.  So I’ve been running Windows under Boot Camp on my MacBook Pro for something I have to do at work.  Now this is a REALLY cool thing Mac offers right out of the box, …

Developer Tools

In the spirit of jotting down things I’ve learned, another important building block is understanding the callstack.  When I was in the bootcamp, we talked about what it was and why it was important, but really didn’t dive too much into the details.  As the programs I’ve built and worked with have gotten increasingly more …

iPhone Simulator!

So in a bit of a different and more technical direction, I want to share something that I came across in my current job that I thought was really neat.  One of our clients  was experiencing a bug that only happened on his iPhone, specifically an iPhone 6s Plus.  I’ve got a different version iPhone, so …

Graduated! Job Searched! HIRED!

So it’s been juuust a bit since my last update… In the words of Bill the Butcher: Life certainly happens.  I want to continue to document my progress and experiences so far, but I also want to put up all the little tidbits I learn along the way as well.  Before getting into that, here’s …

End in sight!

So Ruby was TOUGH.  The language itself seemed pretty intuitive in some ways and it definitely reads a lot more like plain English, especially compared to JavaScript.  It was also way more challenging than I expected, a bit discouraging even.

Rubies and Rupees!

10.5 weeks down!  14 more days of class.  I can’t believe how quickly things are coming to an end.  In some regards, it still feels like this bootcamp is a totally new thing. Which makes sense, it’s only been a bit over 2 months… But on the other hand, it’s like “how can it be …

Projects, projects, projects!

Wow.  Time is flying.  I just started my 7th week of bootcamp and it’s been a wild ride so far.  The constant vacillation between “I got this! Yeah!!” to the all too common “wtf is going on….” seem to happen daily.  Despite the occasional shocks to the ego, I’m really enjoying everything.

3 weeks down! 9 to go!

Zoiks! It’s been way too long since my last post!  This is my first post since I’ve started my programming bootcamp!  In some ways, it feels like I’ve been coding for ages already, and on the other side of the coin, it very much feels like I’m still a complete and total (for lack of …

T-minus one week!

So my program starts in one week!  I’m currently experiencing a really fun mixture of anticipation, excitement, nervousness, and surprise.  I’m antsy as hell to get things truly underway and see what I can do with guided instruction and a direction.

Intro to JavaScript and first video.

Hello again! So it’s been two weeks instead of one, but we’ll just move past that. Since my last update, I’ve recorded/edited/uploaded my first video (click here to check it out!) and have spent a lot of time learning the basics of JavaScript. I haven’t spent as much time doing the official GA pre-work, but …
