So we wanted to find a way to just test that our different WebApps and WebPages were up and running without having to check them ourselves every hour or be told by our customers (which is always embarrassing).
The options were to either use an existing service or write something ourselves, and since I already had built something similar in the past with one of my previous coworkers (which I thank for the knowledge shared) I thought “I can do it!”.
And I did. Even though it was painful.
And so yes, in the View on top I had those $root in front of my availableMeals and removeSeat methods (functions, objects? Everything is mixed up here). I could not figure out why removing the $root from them in the View my…
A true story of a newly graduated Craft Academy alumni.
Amazing. Unbelievable. Shocking.
I have a job! And it’s a good one, people! I am on my way to become a real frontend developer in an amazing environment, with the possibility to use powerful machines and tools and I’m given time and resources to LEARN new things every day!
If this is a dream, DON’T WAKE ME UP.
The first two days have been a lot of talking to coworkers, setting up the new computer and phone, taking a look around and reading a lot.
Now I’m starting to get…
Of course Programming Doesn’t Require Talent or Even Passion, but being passionate about programming surely doesn’t hurt!
If you have followed my story so far, you already know I haven’t been born a programmer, or a developer (if you care to mark the difference between these two). I wouldn’t even say I’m talented, maybe I do have talents, maybe I’m also a talented programmer and I just don’t know that, but the thing that drives me into just wanting to be better at this day after day is a very strong passion.
It’s not just writing code, I’m not passionate…
Well no, I haven’t realized that just now. It’s been a while since I’ve made my peace with the fact that I’m not a dragon yet at coding because the best part has yet to come.
What’s the best part you ask? The moment you see a problem and you just know how to approach it. Like that.
I have seen many different problem scenarios during the Bootcamp and also after the course was finished, but never once I’ve felt like “oh yes of course, this is what I’m going to do” as soon as a new task was presented…
I know, I know. I should keep coding every day to not lose my grip on the things I’ve learned so far. And I do! But still, if I want to actually get into coding as a professional I should be allowed to do it in a professional environment, so searching for a job is ALWAYS the priority!
I’m spending my days trying to dedicate the mornings to job hunting and the afternoons to coding. This morning for example, I sent my CV to some friends and I asked them to help me get in contact with their managers so…
The bootcamp ended a week ago and I still feel like I’m not done!
Writing my CV, creating a cover letter template, erasing it and thinking it’s stupid, burning my CV and writing it again!
Every day I go back to my old challenges and look at them thinking “God, how will I ever fix this so that it looks decent??”. Every day I test myself trying to repeat what I’ve done in the past, failing and trying again.. what am I missing? What am I forgetting?
Never as today documenting every step has seemed so important :D If I…
I just graduated from Craft Academy Coding Bootcamp to realize there is a real world outside. Now I’m eager to take it on!
studying Animal Science, Veterinary medicine and achieving a master’s degree in Molecular Biology, I’ve decided to switch to Web Development at age of 27 to follow the dream of becoming a programmer.
My field of expertise is originally biology and I am very passionate about cultures of bacteria, yeast and virus, DNA sequencing, all the new and old molecular biology techniques and I still follow the latest updates within the scientific community.
I’ve started my journey into…
