Since then, I have actually managed to get to where I wanted to be when I first talked about transitioning into web development!
I'm SUPER pumped to announce that I'm now a Junior Developer at Skookum Digital Works, the best web shop in Charlotte. 6 weeks ago, I started as an intern, learning the ropes and getting exposed to all the technology I've wanted to play with!
In 6 weeks, I have done the following:
- Built another Node app
- Done front-end work in HTML5 and CSS3
- Built a WordPress theme from scratch
- Learned about test- and behavior-driven development
- Manipulated the DOM using JQuery and Ender
- Played around with Knockout and Mocha
Earlier this week (Monday, to be exact), I started my first day as a full-timer. Gone are the days of being an intern - but here are the days of using technology to make things AWESOME!
I couldn't be more pumped.
With my new-found knowledge, I'll be updating my website (honestly, it looks terrible now...) and hopefully be blogging more often again.
Huzzah and thanks for the support!
