“Don’t Call It A Comeback”

back

It’s been awhile since my last post but I’m excited to be back! A LOT has happened since I last gave an update. Here’s a quick summary:

  • Completed the MEAN stack and earned a Red Belt
  • Got a 15 inch Macbook Pro! (May my PC rest in peace…)
  • Completed the Ruby on Rails stack and earned a Black Belt
  • Updated my resume! (This was fun…)
  • Worked on several projects to beef up my resume/portfolio including learning React Native! (Woot mobile development! Btw, click HERE to check out my portfolio!)
  • Started attending several tech meet up around the DFW metroplex and met many really cool developers from all backgrounds (Even music!)
  • Apply for jobs, apply for jobs, and apply for more jobs…
  • Go on my FIRST developer interview!
  • Apply for more jobs…
  • Speak to many recruiters about different positions
  • Apply for more jobs…
  • Not get a call back from my first developer interview!
  • Apply for more jobs…
  • Go on my SECOND developer interview!
  • Apply for more jobs…
  • Go to more meet ups, meet more awesome people, work on more projects, and speak to a few more recruiters, and apply for more jobs! (I lumped these all together because at this point it felt like all of these things were happening  simultaneously)
  • Go on my THIRD developer interview and receive an offer!
  • Accept offer and now I start my new profession tomorrow!

All caught up??? GREAT!

Seriously, this has been a crazy month since graduating from the bootcamp in early July. I’m grateful for all of the support from my family, friends, and especially my wonderfully optimistic girlfriend. I absolutely cannot wait to start this new profession!I know I still have so much to learn but I’m very eager to get started.

Here’s to tomorrow!

It’s a new day.
