Started a new course on web/ app development.  So far it is jumping in head first into front end, setting up a domain, server, and working with version control open source cloud application platform called openshift.  We are creating our own model of a really basic app, that needs tweaking so it can be more user friendly and pleasing to the eye.  

I got a week to come up with a mockup site using bootstrapping and just finding templates online to cut and paste features and attributes.  Then we will work on the back end, and putting it all together. 

I’ve been doing a ruby on rails tutorial on the side as well.  

Summer is so far starting off very busy!  All going to plan haha.  

Meet ups later on to learn anything else I feel I need to catch up on, had my eye on a few rails meetups and a few front end meets.  

need a beer..


Developer by spring 2015 or bust!

Well maybe I shouldn’t say bust, i’ll never quit but it’s a good way to set a timeline and keep myself under some pressure.

Two more weeks then finals!  I can’t wait for this to be over so I can start focusing on development!!

My summer plans are to learn front end, back end, and phone gap to create some apps.  Learn rails on the side and hitting up as many meet ups in the city as possible.  It’s going to be busy, but my goal is to become a junior developer by spring 2015!  I got my goals set, and i’ll have to see whether I’ll attend school next fall semester, possibly do 1 or 2 classes so I can focus on creating applications and websites for my profile.  

I know for sure that I can’t go full time at school and expect to learn web development.  There is not enough time to take 4 computer science classes and have room for anything else.  So i’ll have to tweak my approach but very excited for the rest of this year.  Good luck to all you guys trying to become developers as well!
