2 Weeks Completed At The Iron Yard
As the title implies, I am currently a student at The Iron Yard. I am in the web development 12 week program.
Now that I have completed these first 2 weeks, I feel like so much time has passed. I’ve been working overall 10 to 11 hours a day for this coding bootcamp. Maybe working is not the best word to use in this scenario because I like what I am doing. I think I should say hobby-ing(?).
My first week at the Iron Yard is what I can describe as the wake up week. My spring semester of college had finished a couple of weeks prior and I mostly spent my time at work or exercising. Luckily, I knew what to expect coming in to the program. I just needed to brush off the rust. Nevertheless, our first week was composed of learning how to code in HTML and CSS. Even though I had prior coding experience, my coding experience was more in a mathematical implementation. I felt a bit lost. Sometimes the code I would write would work perfectly well as I intended and other times where it made the whole page flip. It was a roller coaster. It was full of great victories and total defeats. This first week also set the environment of what we should expect in the next couple of weeks.
Overall, I am happy about everything I am currently doing. This culmination of skills will equal to something great!!!
