SB Apprenticeship: Day 64

In completely unrelated news, I have finally collected all the cats from Neko Atsume! This game is silly, adorable and completely addictive.

  • What did you learn yesterday?
  • What are you going to do today?
  • What do you expect to learn?

It’s been extremely hard to focus on work stuff knowing that as of Wednesday I won’t be here anymore. Yesterday I looked at my bookstore code for a bit and then finished editing my resume and put it and some more recent work on my portfolio site. Brandon mentioned that he thinks I would do well at a product shop where I can do a deep dive into a pre-existing code base and there will be people around who can help me get up to speed, so I think that’s where I’m going to focus my efforts.

I think today I’m going to work on some Code School/Treehouse stuff. It’s been a while, so a refresher would be nice. I’ll still have access to the Code School stuff for a little while after I leave SB, so I may as well get as much out of it as I can!

    I closely followed your blog. It is informative and well written. I am very sorry about it not working out for you. I experienced something similar at RoleModel Software when I was part of their apprenticeship program. Jessa, it sounds like you are continuing to plug along and not give up. Stick with it!! I still do not have a job and I am not going to give up. I had a long talk with Brandon Mathis after last night’s Ruby Meetup. We went over to Bada’s Wings for some food afterwards. Brandon told me the greatest trait of any good developer is “GRIT”, that was very encouraging. Let me encourage you to keep building things, that is what companies really want, a person who can solve problems and you can only do this by working your way through personal projects.
