I have the sneaky suspicion, I may have joined a cult.
According to wikipedia:
The term cult usually refers to a social group defined by their religious beliefs, or common interest in a particular personality, object or goal.
This particular cults object of focus is the code, their common interest is in writing good code while helping me get better at doing the same and they are masterful. My initial hope of a normal adventure, has been swiftly dealt with. I am now in a fantasy realm, with enumerables, hashes, APIs, magical spells I have been granted access to. Classes, modules, super classes…I HAVE the power. This power has been described as intoxicating by some, I have no idea what they were talking about, this just feels like my heads going to explode. Explode from the knowledge that’s being pushed in at an alarming rate.
I am dug in and ready for my socialization , but first, 11 weeks of initiation. I will update as I progress.
PSA: INITIALIZE is spelled as such…you will spell it wrong and it will break everything, you will search for hours, you have been warned.
