Keeping Busy

Learning

It seems as though all of my hours are spoken for these days.  I’ve been working on pair projects, doing homework, and doing solo projects.  All of this is using the Ruby language.

Monday is when we really get into HTML and CSS.  I’ve had introductory lessons in these languages, but I’m excited to put my knowledge of Practical Object Oriented design to work.  We’ve had weekly reading homework from this book, and I’m slowly coming to understand the important concepts.

I’ve been continually going to the Seattle.rb group.  They had a wonderful monthly social meetup where we attempted to make “Battleship” programs.  I was partnered up with a senior engineer because I am extremely new.  The programmer gave me some valuable lessons in servers.

Another group that I find to be welcoming is the Puget Sound Python group.  I met many people, including the author of Fluent Python, Luciano Ramahalo.

Next week I plan to attend the Google Cloud Summit. I’m grateful to live in a city where I can diversify my knowledge in tech.
