Pop & Self

Today, after we paired with someone from the Web class to work on our resumes, my partner (Luis) said he enjoyed my blog (thanks!) and that I should blog more about my personal journey with coding—that it'd be something he'd want to see if he was an employer.

I'm gonna try it.

viewDidLoad & scope

The complexity of the task at hand—learning a language, a program, and learning to program—is coming into focus more and more. It can all be intimidating when I look up at the view from the base of this mountain between bouts of writing and troubleshooting code. I worry that the skills and methods I used to get here won’t be enough to sustain me moving forward.

Ice Cream & Memory

I imagine keeping real-world legacy code running will be a lot like sculpting ice cream in a hot, windowless room, so I hope the people I work with will have the same lust for life that the peers I have now do. I think that'll go a long way towards making the process seem more exciting rather than doomed.
