It’s That Time Again

Time for me to announce I’m starting a new job! My time at Scripted was wonderful. I learned some really good life lessons and understand myself more as an engineer and a person. I’ve discovered I’m really interested in bridging that engineer to the world communication that is so necessary for both internal employees and […]

Week 3: Giving Back

Week 3 ended a few days back (sorry y’all I had a busy weekend) and it was awesome. I’m learning new intricacies of our systems and learning to be more confident in myself when I know I know it (or maybe even think I do! Being wrong isn’t the end of the world!). My favorite […]

Week 1: I Feel Like I’ve Been Here Before

First week of work is over and it felt a lot like a less intense week of Hack Reactor. I still can’t believe this is what I’m actually doing with my life. I still definitely have lots and lots of impostor syndrome but I also deployed live things my first week! And learned a few […]

Week 9: Highs and Lows and… WTF I only have three weeks left??

My week started out fairly average. We were all rolling along on our projects and then I noticed an event on the Hack Reactor Senior calendar. Tuesday, three weeks from this past Tuesday, is Hiring Day. Three weeks?? Not even now, more like two?? Oh, god. And yet, as much of a whirlwind as this […]

Week 8: New Surroundings, Same Routine

Sorry for the delay in this post. My roommate, Ava, was worried about my long hours all week so she wouldn’t let me touch my laptop on Sunday. Saturday night was card games with Hack Reactor peeps so I was out late.┬áIt was a jumble of a week and I’m writing this so late that […]

Week 7: Is This What Confidence Feels Like?

Coming back from break was wonderful. I really missed this place and these people and I’m at a point now where I’m excited to walk in the front door of this space. I am really, truly a Software Engineer. I have been for a long time, but it took this place and these people to […]

D3.js Rollups

Do you have all the data and none of the visuals? Do you just want a pretty, fast way to compare lots of data that centers around maybe just a handful of moments? D3.js can help you tame all of your data and d3.rollup is especially useful if you have lots of data that you […]

Setting Up a Database Node Module on a Node/Express Server with Sequelize

If you just need to get a node server up and running with very few lines of code then you hopefully already know about Node/Express (if you don’t, the Express website has a pretty good intro tutorial and has good documentation to get started serving up static assets). If you need all of that and […]

Week 6: Whole New Ballgame

The tiny bit of Hack Reactor/git humor above is going to be lost on most of my audience but it made me happy. This week felt a bit like the first week of the program. A bit of uncertainty, a lot of excitement. We were turned loose this week. No more structured lessons, it’s the […]

Week 4: Losing Power

Another roller coaster week. Worst points: Someone took my laptop charger while I was in lecture, my week 3 assessment was not my finest point, and I miss my cats something desperately. Best points: I worked with my two favorite pair-partners again because I couldn’t handle this week otherwise, I had an awesome girl’s lunch […]
