Back to School!
“I love how it’s quiet and then everyone knows the answer” — Ryan, our instructor
I went back to school this week. At 30 I quit* my job to go back to school to learn a new* skill with hopes of becoming a full-time front-end developer.
This week I started at HackerYou in their 9 week bootcamp course, cohort 12!
On day 1 we showed up, put on name tags, played a guess-at-random who might have written the paper you picked from a bowl. It was fun! (nerve-wracking but fun) and we got to know random things about each other and put names to faces.
Every thing was great!
But I think since we all have different backgrounds and experiences and skill levels in different aspects of development, this will help us work together to learn and fix things. I’ve already had to get one student to help me centre my divs, margin 0 auto hates me. Or I just don’t understand it enough, we should work on our communication better. I don’t think me yelling at it helps.
*quit meaning I told them I was quitting for this and they agreed to a leave of absence
*new meaning I’ve been doing this freelance for two years but need to learn more
