I can’t believe I have been at Ada Developers Academy for over four months. Time is really flying by and I’m astounded daily by how much I have learned. Today is the day that I’ll find out which companies I’ll be interviewing with for possible internships. The past two months, everyone at Ada has been working their mental muscles by practicing whiteboarding and interview questions. I’m so proud of these hard-working people and I know our efforts will be rewarded in the near-ish future. The opportunity for interviewing with Ada’s phenomenal sponsors is an opportunity that I’ve been waiting for since I stepped my timid foot in the door.
Later this afternoon, I’ll attend an event from She Codes Now (Seattle). Here I’ll get an intro to React (which will help with the Udemy course) and eat some pizza. Pizza is key.
Last week was the Thanksgiving holiday and I spent a lot of time with my mentors. I have two of them. There is an industry mentor from the Puget Sound Python Programming group and a previous graduate from Ada Developers Academy. Both of them have been instrumental in shaping my future as a software engineer.
