Getting Ready for Code School

I’m starting code school in a week and I really can’t wait! I start the Iron Yard JavaScript 12-week immersive course next week. Wish me luck! Getting to this point has been a long and twisting road, but I think this will be a great path forward in life for me.

The last few weeks have been a challenge. I sold my house, quit my job, and moved to Salt Lake City. I’ve been working through the prep work, but I want to build some stuff! I was lucky to attend the UtahJS conference last Friday, and in addition to being eye-opening and educational, it was a validating experience. I’ve been working with engineers of various sorts for nearly 10 years, and after talking to some very gracious senior developers at the conference, I’m even more excited to be setting foot into this world.
