Today is the start of our second week at Array. The last week has been a whirlwind of change for myself and, I would assume, everyone else. It has been a tremendous change in my day to day life making the transition from working on the railroad to moving into a classroom and learning the basics of HTML and CSS. I am thrilled to have made the move, as wild as it has been. This is truly where I have wanted to be for the last several years. I am thankful for the opportunity to be on the road to a career I thought I could have only dreamt of 6 months ago.
Having gone through the first week, I definitely like the culture of Array. It doesn’t have the feeling I used to associate with school where I dreaded going. I look forward to coming in every morning and seeing what new information I can pick up that day. I am also looking forward to our guest speakers every week. Carter Parks was our first guest speaker and I enjoyed the opportunity to listen to his path to success and how he approaches his business. The chance to hear from quite a new speaker every week will be an amazing chance to see how broad the spectrum is that we can chase once we finish school in 6 months whether that be freelance work, starting our own companies, or finding an awesome company to work for. It is a great way to end the week for me.
All in all, the first week at Array was a great experience for me. It served to really get me excited for the next 23 weeks. I am looking forward to the journey with everyone here and to what it culminates in down the road.
