This Week in Coding: #011

It has been a minute since I’ve done this but it is time to ramp back up. I love learning new stuff so I don’t think I could ever phase out this series of blog posts. I also like to keep track of everything I’m doing, especially when it is time to do a retrospective. …

Reintroducing …. myself

Sooo I took a long unexpected break from this site and so many other projects. I neglected this site I created during a time when I was struggling to manage work responsibilities and life, which sucks because this site was conceived as a way to get me to the next phase of my career and …

What have I been up to?

My last post was not an update post. It was more like a “Hey I’m back and I’ve been working on a bunch of stuff behind the scenes” kind of post. This is an actual update post where I share what’s been happening in my “programming life” and beyond since the last time I provided …

New site, who dis?

It has been so long since I’ve properly blogged and so much has happened during this super long break. I purchased this new domain at the start of the month just because I liked the idea of separating my programming notes on learning, etc from my portfolio and potential client-focused site. I’ve been doing a …

Hiatus; break for the winter holiday

Oh hey there! Long time, no see. I have been busy coding and reading but of course not documenting it here. I’ve spent a lot of time on my job search which has taken me away from my coding study but I’m still pushing. All of that to say, it is that time of the …

This Week in Coding: #010

Ahhh I’ve reached the 10 week mark… of documenting of course lol. I’m sad to announce that I still have not completed my portfolio. I woke up this morning and saw this tweet that I’m going to share here to put everything in perspective, for myself. In truth, I'm probably right where I'm supposed to …

This Week in Coding: #009

I am still working on my portfolio. If nothing else, this process has helped me understand all of the moving parts of this web development/design process. I spent a lot of time this week working through various Illustrator tutorials. A few months ago, I did the same thing with Firework (a program no longer in …

This Week in Coding: #008

This week was very weird, I had a very difficult time focusing, despite staying posted in the library everyday for 6 hours. On a personal note, I was tired as hell and couldn’t figure out why. On a professional note, I started it off spending my entire Monday applying for jobs, some media (a girl …

Trying out a new text editor

This week I tried out a new text editor. For the last few weeks I’ve downloaded and installed quite a few. I’m working on a Windows machine so I’m limited in that regard. Some programs I’ve installed and just peeked into include Sublime Text, VSCode, Brackets, TweakStyle and Atom. I work with Notepad++ and Netbeans …
